    Coronavirus returns as Chancellor Sunak walks a tightrope

    Tory tribes go back to war

    Boris Johnson found himself in another parliamentary stand-off over Brexit legislation this week, and eventually found a compromise with rebellious Conservative MPs. Why is the prime minister struggling with his party and is he becoming a diminished figure in Westminster? Plus, with the takeover by US chipmaker Nvidia of British-based chip designer Arm, and Hitachi's decision to withdraw from a major nuclear power project in Wales, does the UK have a coherent industrial policy?

    Brexit deal or no deal?

    Boris Johnson's government is bringing in a new law — the internal market bill — that threatens to undermine the UK's withdrawal agreement with the EU.

Plus, coronavirus is spreading rapidly once more in Britain and, in response, new measures to limit gatherings are to be introduced. But will they be enough to stop the UK heading towards a second national lockdown?

    Amber Rudd on why PM is getting it wrong on equality and Brexit

    Former home secretary Amber Rudd finds the state of the Conservative party "devastating” and "embarrassing". In the second episode of a special interview series, she tells Sebastian Payne that Boris Johnson’s all-male cabal is promoting inequality, is high-handed with business and is heading for a hard Brexit without appearing to analyse different outcomes on trade.
