Are election results worst of all worlds for Tories?

The Conservatives are facing their worst local election results in 40 years – and yet it looks like Rishi Sunak may cling on after Ben Houchen secured a victory in the Tees Valley mayoral vote.

But what next for the Conservative Party?

Are they now in the worst of all worlds with a wounded leader facing defeat at the general election or can Rishi Sunak turn it around?

To discuss all this and more we are joined by Spectator editor Fraser Nelson, former Conservative Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng and Labour’s Leader in the House of Lords Baroness Angela  Smith.


Produced by Silvia Maresca, Calum Fraser, Rob Thomson, Nick Jackson.
