Shocking stuff this episode as Lesley and Pat fa oot oer Eurovision. Was it a glorious celebration of the human spirit or a festival of over hyped musical mediocrity? Guess which of us thought what!

The Queen's Speech allied to the Times story of the failure of Liz Truss's latest negotiations give every indication that the Tories are prepared to rip up the Northern Ireland Protocol.

To say Lesley's travels to and from the Netherlands were a richt trachle is an understatement.

But Lesley asks if there's a far more fundamental set of problems at the root of the issue which are not being addressed. The UK government has com…
