This week's podcast was delayed for some personal reasons , which have been explained elsewhere.
We try and get some perspective on the delay of the Chilcot Report, how Scottish Labour is picking up issues and running with them and the impartiality of the Civil Service. It's difficult to see much positive news in these topics; but there is the glimmer of cross party cooperation around women's prison proposals.
Naturally enough, as Lesley launches her latest edition of 'Blossom' in the Empire Bingo hall, we talk bingo. And we learn a new term ; 'rebel bingo'.
We are very grateful for our listeners' support and kind messages during this tough time - every one is appreciated.
