And then there were two. After the longest two weeks in existence, the final candidates in the Tory leadership election have been decided – Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss.
But is it possible that some Conservatives are getting seller’s remorse with regards to their recently departed leader? Former party treasurer Lord Cruddas of Shoreditch – Peter Cruddas – joins Christopher Hope in the Red Lion to make his pitch as to why he believes the members need their say on Boris Johnson.
Plus former Conservative chairman Brandon Lewis, who organised the last members vote in 2019, on his party’s taste for ousting leaders, and fresh from a surprising Tory leadership race, Kemi Badenoch talks about what prompted her to run, says her future might not necessarily contain another leadership bid, and promises that she wasn’t hypnotised by Michael Gove (you heard it here first).
