Pompey’s favourite party political podcast returns with hosts Ian ‘Tiny’ Morris and Simon Sansbury. In this week’s episode, Ian and Simon are joined by the founder of popular local politics Facebook group, Portsmouth Politics, Si Bunting. The three discuss the now infamous local politics group and how dynamics have changed in lockdown, before discussing how numbers – of deaths from the virus, and tests for it – can be misrepresented in a crisis.
Join us at 6:27pm as we invite Portsmouth Politics Facebook page grandee (other political facebook pages are available) Si Bunting to join us and talk about the problems with numbers and ask if airlines should be getting a juicy taxpayer funded bailout.
