As the UK edges closer to 40,000 coronavirus deaths, there is uproar in the country over the behavior of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s chief political advisor Dominic Cummings, who drove nearly 300 miles across England while the public were being urged not to leave their homes. Mr Cummings stands unapologetic, and with the support of the Prime Minister behind him, is this another example of one rule for the people and one for the elite? Anna Soubry, former UK Health Minister, and Mark Landler, London bureau chief at The New York Times, join Christiane Amanpour to discuss the controversy. Music producer Drew Dixon and author Joan Morgan talk to Christiane about ‘Off the Record’, an HBO documentary chronicling the allegations of sexual assault made against hip hop mogul Russell Simmons. They reflect on how black women have been treated by the #MeToo movement, and why the film almost didn’t make it to air. And French street artist JR, known for his giant photographs of faces in urban areas, tells our Hari Sreenivasan about how lockdown is inspiring him.
