Description

We speak exclusively to Sir Alex Allan, who resigned as the PM’s ethics advisor in 2020, about the resignation of his successor Lord Geidt.

He tells Adam and Vicki that he’s “really upset” about the situation, and in an unexpected turn, reveals his love for cult rock band the Grateful Dead.

There’s analysis from Chris and BBC Breakfast business journalist Nina Warhurst in the studio, as well as a look at interest rates as they reach their highest point since 2009.

This edition of Newscast was made by Chris Flynn. The assistant editor was Alison Gee. The editor was Jonathan Aspinwall.
