Van Morrison has announced that he will release three new songs protesting against coronavirus restrictions.

The singer described the UK government as "fascist bullies" and accused them of trying to "enslave" the public.

He also claimed that scientists are making up "crooked facts" about the pandemic.

Roe McDermott and Donal O'Donoghue discussed this and more in The Week Trending, including Jedward's Twitter spat with Piers Morgan and the assault on Tánaiste Leo Varadkar that was captured on camera.
