The Lord Sumption episode is a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ well reasoned and thought provoking critique of the way the government has handled the Covid-19 issue. A damning evaluation of the way that the public have been abused.

Outstanding. Bret is a luminary voice of reason. Cuts through the haze and mire that modern academic thinking - and left thinking - has sunken into.
