Dr Jay Bhattacharya, Stanford medical professor and co-author of the Great Barrington Declaration boards the rocket of sweet reason this week to tell Telegraph columnists Allison Pearson and Liam Halligan why he thinks the UK government should 'declare victory and move on’ after its vaccine rollout success. The lockdown policy, he tells our co-pilots, will be viewed as the single biggest public health mistake in all of history.

Elsewhere, with the sun shining Allison considers crashing the G7 Summit in Cornwall in order to have a holiday, Liam takes listeners behind the scenes at the soon-to-be-launched television channel, GB News, and our co-pilots make an impassioned case for second chances in the light of England cricket star Ollie Robinson's suspension.

Allison and Liam will be replying to comments beneath this article on Thursday 10th June from 11am-12pm:|
