Wright on the Nail

17-12-2021 • 34 mins

In this week’s ‘News Roundtable’ episode, host Chris Wright is joined by broadcaster and commentator Jonathan Sacerdoti; UK Music communications director Vincent Moss; and senior political correspondent at the Daily Mirror, Rachel Wearmouth.

The conversation begins by discussing the Liberal Democrats victory in the North Shropshire by-election, they then consider growing public outrage at government scandals, and whether this shock defeat could lead to Boris Johnson facing a leadership challenge.

The conversation moves on to talk about the surge in Omicron Coronavirus cases, to debate if a lockdown is looming, the imminent impact on the hospitality sector, as well as the predicted rise in hospitalisations.

Guests also chew over forecasts of a 6% surge in inflation next year, before turning to the controversy surrounding Lewis Hamilton’s defeat in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix where he was pipped to the post.
