The Peston Podcast / Redecorating Downing Street, Racism on Social Media and India's Battle with COVID

Listen on

Episode notes

This week on the #Peston Podcast we’re discussing:

❶ How damaged is the Prime Minister by the disclosures that he borrowed money from the Tory party to finance the redecoration of his Downing Street home? And also by the charge that he made extraordinary remarks before the 2nd lockdown that he would rather see ‘bodies piling high in the streets’ rather than have a 3rd lockdown?
❷ How do we get the scourge of racism off social media especially when it relates to footballers?
❸ Should we be doing more to help India obtain more vaccines? And what kind of booster will those who have already been vaccinated in the UK be getting in the autumn?

Listen to all this and more as we join ITV’s Political Editor Robert Peston as he sits down with Leader of the Opposition Keir Starmer MP, Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi MP, Sheffield United footballer David McGoldrick, the Conservative's Dehenna Davison MP and Labour's Jon Cruddas MP.
