14 min listen

In This Episode

We have a new leader of the Conservative party. After Penny Mordaunt dropped out of the race just seconds before the deadline, Rishi Sunak will become the next prime minister. But he inherits a disunited party, war in Ukraine and a huge economic mountain to climb. What comes next?

James Forsyth and Katy Balls discuss.

Produced by Max Jeffery and Oscar Edmondson.
