George Parker, Political Editor of the Financial Times joined Mandy to give his assessment of where Boris Johnson stands in his leadership following the Tory sleaze controversy, the ongoing backlash following the 'cheese & wine' lockdown part, and the Tory revolt based around the key measure of Boris Johnson's "Plan B" for dealing with COVID infections this winter.

After almost two years of chronic disruption to business and all aspects of how we function as a society - Accenture's latest Interactive Global Report reveals how systems and societies have been fundamentally altered forever.  Mark Curtis, Head of Innovation and Thought Leadership at Accenture Interactive joined Mandy to discuss.

Mandy was joined by John Ryan, Founder of Gigable to discuss.
