Larry and Paul’s Real Daily Briefing refreshes the parts other briefings cannot reach
Parliament is back in session, and MPs have been addressing some top issues, such as:
Funding social care with a National Insurance rise
The rise of the Taliban
The return of school pupils to classrooms, despite rising covid rates and lack of social distancing measures
Whether to allow barely treated sewage into the UK’s waterways

Youngest is back to school on Monday which gives me just 3 days to come up with a way to discharge the responsibility the government has imposed on me as a parent to prevent the spread of COVID amongst pupils. I have to stop leaving my prep to the last minute.

With the politicians – theoretically – back at work, so are the very funny and cutting satirists, Larry and Paul, who covered all this and more in their new ‘daily’ briefing.
They posted the sketch on Twitter, too, where it went down very well.
Look what they did, the idiots. https://t.co/nUFJLcfuYS

#RealDailyBriefing simply brilliant. Sometimes you think you have gone mad and the only person in the world who sees it, then the perfect satire comes along to steady your slowly sinking ship…… https://t.co/BAQpADl0IV

As ever, the hefty proportion of truth made it a bitter-sweet experience for some.
Painful and brilliant in equal measure. https://t.co/Nwx0hFkdNg
