Shaun Bailey, the Conservative candidate for London Mayor, joins Christopher Hope to pitch why he believes he's the 'fresh start' the capital needs. The former advisor to David Cameron quickly dismisses the idea of Sadiq Khan's drugs review, claims that the outer London congestion charge will drive more people onto the roads, and calls for more bobbies on the beat. Plus he reveals what public nuisance is his personal pet peeve.
Also on the show: Chris talks to writer Andrew McQuillan about the situation in Northern Ireland and the many factors, including Brexit, that have culminated in the recent unrest. And flying the flag for the under 30s Chopper's fans, Chris asks the Telegraph's Science Editor Sarah Knapton to break down this week's news about younger people not having the AstraZeneca vaccine.
