    Normality by November?

    As Boris Johnson suggests the nation could see a Christmas free of social distancing, the Telegraph’s Deputy Political Editor, Anna Mikhailova joins Theodora Louloudis to discuss what the Prime Minister’s latest update means for those currently working from home, whether newly-unveiled testing targets will give the country greater freedoms and why giving councils the power to implement local lockdowns is one of the government’s most significant steps yet.

    Why are Tory voters more likely to oppose face masks?

    Why are Tory voters more likely to oppose face masks?

    The move to make face covering compulsory in shops has caused anger - online, at least. And a YouGov poll suggests that those who oppose the move are more likely to be Conservative voters and Brexiteers. The Telegraph’s Parliamentary Sketchwriter, Michael Deacon joins Theodora Louloudis to discuss why the decision goes against Boris Johnson’s own libertarian principles and what leaving the EU might have to do with wearing a face mask.

    Science or sexism? The beauty industry’s slow reopening

    Science or sexism? The beauty industry’s slow reopening

    Beauty salons have been given the green light to reopen on Monday, but not all treatments will go ahead. Manicures, massages and leg waxes are back on the menu, but no treatments can be carried out above the neck - apart from beard trimming. It’s led to a “beards v brows” debate and allegations of sexism. The Telegraph’s Women’s Editor, Claire Cohen and Beauty Director, Sonia Haria join Theodora Louloudis to discuss the importance of the beauty industry and why they believe this is another symptom of a lockdown designed “by men, for men”.
