Jun 11, 03:55 PM

Are lessons over systemic racism in the UK being learned following the death of George Floyd? Lib Dem leadership candidate Layla Moran joins the HuffPost UK politics team to discuss the felling of Edward Colston's statue, Boris Johnson's refusal to admit to mistakes in the coronavirus pandemic and we look at what's next for the Lib Dems.

George Floyd’s death continued to reverberate around the world this week, with protests in Bristol leading to the tearing down of Edward Colston’s statue due to his links to the slave trade. Is Britain finally facing up to the systemic racism present in the country?

One person not facing up to his failings is Boris Johnson, as the government continues to ignore calls to say mistakes were made in the response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Joining Arj Singh, Paul Waugh and Rachel Wearmouth, Lib Dem leadership candidate Layla Moran.
