A Parrot, a Fridge and a Spanish Driving Test

Episode 14: This edition drops in on the British Prime Minister as he fields a call from the Queen mid-Downing Street party. Brenda from Bristol adds her voice to the political maelstrom and we hear from a Cov-idiot on a train. I chat about the Winter of Discontent then join the British Foreign Secretary as she jets off to Ozz in search of Brexit benefits for farmers.

I take the Spanish test for drivers nearing their sell-by date and end up visiting the doctor. We finish off with an uplifting contribution from Mike Britton. There will be parrot jokes, jazz twangers, and a parade of sequinned elephants.
