🎶 “Simply having/A terrible cheese and wine…” 🎶 In the last OGWN of 2021, our Christmas stocking bulges with troubles for Boris Johnson. Lord Frost bails out, the UK caves over the ECJ and the Northern Ireland Protocol, people have never been so angry about cheese and/or wine, and he’s lost control of COVID measures – again. What a way to end the year.
Plus: The panel reads the tea leaves for reasons to be optimistic in 2022. The many faces of the Liz Truss Multiverse. And what’s the worst Christmas our panel have ever had?
“The Brexiters can’t let Northern Ireland be seen as the only part of the UK to make a success of Brexit… because it’s still in the Single Market.” – Naomi Smith
“Lord Frost’s resignation was timed to cause maximum damage to an already damaged Johnson. I wouldn’t be surprised if one of the rivals had offered him a job.” – Alex Andreou
“Liz Truss is oozing with desperation for the top job, it’s almost embarrassing.” – Naomi Smith
“If the Government is saying we need something in a week, the science is probably saying we needed it a week ago.” – Minnie Rahman
