Has Boris got away with it?

14 min listen

After the news of the fixed penalty notices, Boris Johnson, his wife Carrie Johnson and Rishi Sunak paid their fines and issued a public apology.

For Boris, the reaction has been surprisingly positive compared to the beginning of the year. The majority of cabinet ministers have come out in support of the Prime Minister, but there are still some voices of discontent. Nigel Mills was the first Tory MP to announce he no longer has faith in the Prime Minister and thinks he should resign, who will be next?

All to be discussed as Katy Balls speaks to Isabel Hardman and Professor Sir John Curtice, a political scientist currently the professor of politics at the University of Strathclyde, and senior research fellow at NetCen Social Research and the ESRC’s ‘The UK in a Changing Europe’ initiative.
