Sunak narrowly avoids triple by-election defeat

12 min listen

There was something for everyone in the by-elections with each of the three big parties getting a seat. The Tories lost Somerton and Frome to the Lib Dems and Selby and Ainsty to Labour but did narrowly cling on in Boris Johnson’s former seat of Uxbridge and South Ruislip, albeit with a reduced majority of just 495 votes.

James Heale unpacks the results with Fraser Nelson and Katy Balls.
