News Roundtable: Budget 2021, Pontins’ secret blacklist and plans for No.10’s makeover
This week is our ‘News Roundtable’ episode, where host Chris Wright discusses the week’s biggest stories with journalists and decision-makers. In this episode Chris is joined by Penny Richards, managing director of The Aspen Institute UK; Cliff Fluet, digital lawyer at Lewis Silkin and managing director of Eleven Advisory; and Michael Wilson, journalist, broadcaster and British TV's longest-serving business and economics editor
The discussion kicks off with reactions to the 2021 Budget, the media’s ‘smoke signals’ and chancellor Rishi Sunak’s meteoric political ascent. Together they address the outrage surrounding Pontins’ secret blacklist on Irish surnames and debate who should be paying for Carrie Symonds’ makeover of the prime-ministerial abode.
