Description

The new chancellor delivered his first Budget this week and pulled off a complicated, uncertain fiscal event. Has he defined what Johnsonism is? How does the Conservative party feel about the big spending increases? And how will it all be paid for? Plus we discuss Boris Johnson's decision to increase the UK's efforts to combat coronavirus, why No10 is relying on behavioural scientists and taking a different approach to the virus from other countries. Presented by Sebastian Payne, with George Parker, Chris GIles, Laura Hughes and Sarah Neville. Produced by Anna Dedhar.
