Capitol Crimes

Stephen Bush and Ailbhe Rea discuss the aftermath of the shocking scenes from Washington as a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol building, and what those events mean for changing international norms around politics and the media. Then, in You Ask Us, they look at what impact lockdown scepticism has actually had on UK Government policy.
