Episode 20: Partygate and the Foreign Secretary who didn’t know Rostov was in Russia

The Three Old Hacks are back, raising a glass to celebrate the work done by journalistic colleagues in unveiling the various parties that took place at Downing St during lockdown. Sky TV, the Mirror and the Daily Telegraph all come in for special mentions, as does Liz Truss, but she gets a special mention for rather a different reason: as the focus of their scorn for being the Foreign Secretary who didn’t know Rostov was in Russia.

The Three Old Hacks, not so much setting the world to rights as lamenting Britain’s ignominious position in it.

Listen to former BBC News sports editor Mihir Bose, Economics editor of the Sunday Times David Smith and political commentator Nigel Dudley on the events of the past week.
