In one of the most significant twists in the Covid-19 story to date, this week the Health Secretary Matt Hancock was exposed by The Sun newspaper as having an affair with an aide in breach of his own social distancing guidelines. Hancock tried to cling on but eventually resigned and was replaced by Sajid Javid. We look at Matthew 23 and ask what Christ's denunciation of the Scribes and Pharisees has to teach us about this sordid state of affairs.
Before that we review the more positive stories of the week: England doing in well in football! Cycling being interesting (for Tom)! And, of course, the great freedom march that happened in central London on Saturday June 26th. A wonderful time was had by all!
