Episode notes

Covid adviser Jason Leitch has been a recurring character in the Covid inquiry.

We discuss how he has also become central to a second inquiry, one which looks into harm caused by ex Dundee surgeon Sam Eljamel.

We're joined by MSP Liz Smith who raised questions about the Tayside links and campaigners' concerns over potential conflict of interest.

The squeeze on budgets and terrible legacy of Liz Truss's hold on UK finances is causing major repercussions.

We look at the big health, education and transport projects now under threat.
