Description

The difficulties of getting goods into Northern Ireland under the new post-Brexit arrangements are leaving some empty supermarket shelves in the province.

SDLP leader Colum Eastwood tells Bloomberg Westminster's Roger Hearing and Sebastian Salek this is taking Northern Ireland further from the U.K. He warns the "sands of democracy" are moving, and Northern Ireland may not always be part of the union.

Eastwood adds that although the virus restrictions are working and the R-rate is coming down in Northern Ireland, the Stormont government still made mistakes in its handling of the pandemic.

Plus, Bloomberg Opinion's Therese Raphael joins to talk about the latest free school meals scandal.
