Does Zac Goldsmith’s resignation matter?

11 min listen

Zac Goldsmith has resigned as a minister, and says he quit because Rishi Sunak is ‘simply uninterested’ in the environment. It comes a day after Goldsmith was named by the Privileges Committee as one of 10 Tories who organised a campaign to undermine the Partygate inquiry. How much will Goldsmith’s resignation hurt the government? 

James Heale speaks to Fraser Nelson and Katy Balls.
