Covers Kamala Harris's question on climate change, the action by police against David Starkey and Darren Grimes, the action by Twitter and Facebook against the New York Post article on Hunter Biden, and Boris Johnson's turning down the SAGE recommendation for a circuit-breaker lockdown against Covid-19.
