Just four days ago, The Times’ science editor attacked the Mail on Sunday’s story that NHS staff are set to get a Covid vaccine “in weeks”, claiming that “if anyone *actually* knew how well the trials were going then they would have broken blinding protocols. So either the story is not “dramatic evidence of covid breakthrough”, or it’s a major scandal”. Guido was surprised, therefore, to see The Times splashing with a scoop this morning from Tom claiming “Scientists hope for vaccine by Christmas”. Scandalous, Tom, no one *actually* knows how well the vaccine trials are going…
Is the government’s Covid testing strategy sinking without trace?
With unemployment rising two a two-year high and thousands of post-furlough redundancies expected, what’s next for the UK economy?
Rishi Sunak says he wants to “get creative” to support jobs and employment. But how will he do that?
And are the testing fiasco and the rebellion over the Internal Market Bill jeopardising Boris Johnson’s premiership?
All this and more will be put to the (readily-available) test in tonight’s Live with Littlewood from the IEA.
Joining host Mark Littlewood will be the Times’ science editor Tom Whipple, ConservativeHome’s Mark Wallace, and former Brexit Party MEP Alexandra Phillips.
Also taking part in our 90 minutes of free-rolling conversation will be the new Director of the Politeia think tank Jonathan Isaby, independent economist Julian Jessop, Matthew Lesh of the Adam Smith Institute, Duncan Simpson of the Taxpayers’ Alliance plus the IEA’s Annabel Denham and Christopher Snowdon.

The economy’s down nearly 25% since February. In May, economic growth didn’t get anywhere near expectations. In March and April, the UK economy shrank back to where it was in 2002.
Is there any way out of this economic tailspin? Can cheap pizza and well-insulated lofts really get us out of trouble?
In tonight’s LIVE WITH LITTLEWOOD host Mark Littlewood and his guests set the dials for 2020 and beyond.
Joining him will be Toby Young, general secretary of the Free Speech Union, former MP Douglas Carswell, the Telegraph’s Madeline Grant and Dia Chakravarty and the Times’ Science Editor Tom Whipple.
Also taking part will be independent economist Julian Jessop, Sam Bowman of the International Center for Law & Economics and the IEA’s Victoria Hewson.
Together, they’ll try to get us back to the future. Along the way, they’ll ask ‘Who regulates -the regulators?” and discuss whether wearing masks will suffocate economic growth.
