Rashford takes on the government – again: Politics Weekly podcast | Politics


Two weeks into England’s third lockdown and we’re all still a bit fuzzy about the rules. Police chiefs are once again asking for clarity on the latest Covid guidelines. If they aren’t sure of them, how on earth can the public be?

Members of the government will also, once again, have school meals on their minds after the Manchester United footballer Marcus Rashford highlighted the inadequate free school meals being sent to parents under the £30 government voucher scheme. How will the government fix this latest mess?

It was a tough year for the new leader of the opposition to make a name for himself or his shadow cabinet. Can Keir Starmer break away from reactive mode and carve a clear vision for the Labour party in 2021? We’ll discuss that later on.

Plus, Lisa O’Carroll tells us about what’s happening with UK-EU trade at borders since Brexit came into effect on 1 January.
