    It’s the week in which the Tories were on the spot about where their cash comes from, and why they rallied around to protect a corruption row MP. We got through a week of climate-saving discussion from world leaders, but was it just hot air?

    Week 42, 2021: Calling time on a poisonous political tone

    Week 42, 2021: Calling time on a poisonous political tone

    It’s the week in which the UK was forced to reflect on the killing of Sir David Amess and come to terms with the increasingly poisonous tone of debate online and in real life. Meanwhile, Conservatives were embarrassed in the north-east as a carbon capture project heads south. And the SNP faced questions from both sides of the constitutional debate on how Scotland can realistically get a second independence referendum.
