Lockdown parties: It would be surprising if Johnson can remain PM through 2022 (E1100)

We speak to the former UK secretary of state for energy & climate, Chris Huhne. He discusses the scandal surrounding PM Boris Johnson and multiple parties being thrown at Downing Street through multiple Covid lockdowns, the relaxing of restrictions, the energy crisis hitting the UK with many energy providers collapsing, the possibility of war breaking out over a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine, what that would mean for global energy prices, and more. Finally, we speak to Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy for India’s 73rd Republic Day, which celebrates India’s independence from the British Empire. He discusses the life of celebrated Indian independence fighter Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, the potential role of Lord Mountbatten in the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, PM Narendra Modi’s withdrawal of the farming laws following mass farmer protests, India’s growing rivalry with China, accusations of a creeping genocide against Muslims in India, and much more.
