Who the hell is running Britain? We need to be told – and fast! Says SIR BERNARD INGHAM

FRIENDS telephoning me in my Covid-shielded existence are very exasperated. "Who the hell is running Britain?", they demand, as if I ought to know.

It is a very good question. It will launch a thousand analyses by political historians and constitutional experts. Before they get to work with their hindsight let me try to answer this conundrum.

He was certainly going great guns before coronavirus hit us, with Brexit more or less sorted and ensconced in No 10 with a big majority, thanks to Labour seats in the Northern Red Wall falling to the Brexit Tories.
