Anoosh, Stephen and Ailbhe are joined by data journalist Ben Van De Merwe to discuss the New Statesman's exclusive research showing how many years of life the UK has lost to Covid-19.
Ailbhe is in Hartlepool where she's been following candidates on the campaign trail in a decidedly 'un-electiony' election.
And You Ask Us, who will replace Arlene Foster as leader of the Democratic Unionist Party?
