In, A Wicked Issue – The case of Dominic Cummings, and who speaks for the North-East? Kelly will investigate how the Durham-born Cummings shaped his unique philosophy and whether he is more on the side of the North East than we might think? More broadly the piece will explore where the ‘Geordie voice’ features in our national politics.
