hello and welcome to the programme which brings together columnists from uk newspapers with the foreign correspondents who write, blog and broadcast to audiences in their home country from the dateline: london. this was the week when sue gray delivered her report into whether downing street partied during the covid lockdowns — did the gray report deliver? we learnt the likely impact of surging energy prices — a doubling of the numbers in fuel poverty in the uk. the goverment�*s answer to it — throw money at the problem. is it proportionate —

or inflationary? and what about those other sharply rising bills: is inflation stalking the globe? to discuss all that, in the studio are: the american journalist stephanie baker, a senior writer with bloomberg markets. steve richards, a political commentator who presents the podcast rock and roll politics; and ian martin, who founded and edits the news website reaction, and is a columist for the times. straight in. at the end of the week, much predicted and much debated, where is the prime ministers position now? he where is the prime ministers position now?— where is the prime ministers position now? where is the prime ministers osition now? , ~ position now? he has survived. all this h -e position now? he has survived. all this hype about — position now? he has survived. all this hype about sue _ position now? he has survived. all this hype about sue grey, - position now? he has survived. all this hype about sue grey, an - this hype about sue grey, an official conducting about these parties and in the end, the report and didn't exonerate him but let them off the hook it's a classic borisjohnson situation where he just sort of delays, creates confusion, we all felt we knew what was in the report by the end and her conclusion was fairly bland and he

is free again. in that sense, the survivals was to be a week that if this had been a month ago, it might bring them down. but hejust bring them down. but he just gets away with it again, which boris johnson always seems to have a knack of doing. i think underneath the surface, there's more complexity than that big shifts in british politics going on personally that i think you'll start to see the beginning of not a settled consensus but does people saying to each other, in and around whitehall and the media in the uk that there is a labour government coming because even though it has a finished of borisjohnson, it has trashed the tory brand and trashed his personal brand i think it's going to be very difficult for them to recover longer—term and he may attempt to fight the next general election but abortion members as a personality, i side with them years ago on the telegraph, boris is very much in

hello there. for most of us today, it was a lovely day. in the sunshine, overthe it was a lovely day. in the sunshine, over the weekend, the weather was going to start to change. some sunshine but temperatures are going to be dropping particularly on sunday and by then, there could be more showers as well. not really a cloud in the sky across other parts of the uk, temperatures reaching 20 degrees in the sunshine and a bit more cloud further north with most sunshine in northern scotland and that's where we'll keep one or more going well into the night as well. 0ther showers across northern areas would tend to fade away in the skies were clearfor tend to fade away in the skies were clear for most of us but little bit more cloud perhaps coming into northern ireland and the winds would be dropping in so it will turn quite chilly once again. temperatures down to six or 7 degrees. 0ver chilly once again. temperatures down to six or 7 degrees. over the region, high—pressure close to the uk butjust not in the right place and if anything, uk butjust not in the right place and ifanything, it uk butjust not in the right place and if anything, it will push back up towards iceland. but that's the position, we look at the northerly breeze on saturday on sunday, that
7:57 pm
cooler air in the north would push its way further south. starting the weekend of the bright and sunny note for many places and while we will see some patchy cloud developing, much of the country will stay dry with sunny spells. just the chance of one or two showers priest in scotland and perhaps eastern parts of england. across northern scotland, elsewhere is six or 18 degrees should feel pleasant enough in the sunshine. but we've still got some high pollen levels in its grass pollen at this time of the year. through the midlands and across parts of southern england once again. the second half of the week and will probably see more cloud around it will be thicker as well and we have a greater chance of catching some showers especially across eastern areas of the uk. the northerly breeze will be corridor i think on sunday and we could squeeze 16 in south wales at 11 or 12 degrees at best and eastern parts of england in eastern scotland. it should be there for the time of year. pressure continues to fall as we head into monday as well as the

high—pressure moving further away from the uk. we are left with later winds in the struggle and still towards the far northwest of the uk. but otherwise, later winds in a limited amount of sunshine and will be some showers perhaps two and limited mess, perhaps with more cloud and the focus of rain, temperatures will be lower as we head into next week.
