Dominic Cummings’ war on the civil service: Politics Weekly podcast | Politics

With reports of bullying, sackings and briefings against civil servants emerging from Whitehall, is No 10 at war with the civil service?

And as EU and UK negotiators get ready for trade talks to begin next week, is chlorinated chicken on or off the menu?

To discuss, the Guardian’s deputy political editor Rowena Mason is joined in the studio by the political journalist Marie Le Conte; Raoul Ruparel, a former special adviser to Theresa May; and Tim Bale, a professor of politics at Queen Mary University of London and the deputy director of the thinktank UK in a Changing Europe.

Also this week: after Bernie Sanders stormed to victory in Nevada last weekend, a new poll gave Donald Trump his highest ratings yet. Could a Sanders victory in the Democratic primaries spell another four years of Trump? We rate the candidates’ chances with Karin Robinson from the Primarily 2020 podcast.
