Weekly look ahead: 7th July

My weekly video, discussing the important ‘Domestic Abuse Bill’, the new ‘Global Human Rights Sanction Regime’, the mini-budget we’re expecting on Wednesday and new support for the arts.

My weekly video, discussing the reopening of pubs and other venues from the 4th of July, overcrowding on certain beaches, the Immigration Bill… and finally getting a haircut on Saturday!
