A special episode of the NS podcast recorded immediately after a dramatic Prime Minister’s Questions.

Boris Johnson is facing an escalating leadership crisis over allegations that a string of parties were held across Whitehall during lockdown. Christian Wakeford, the MP for Bury South, defected to Labour just minutes before PMQs, while in an equally dramatic moment David Davis urged him to “in the name of God, go”. These damaging moves come as members of the 2019 intake of Conservative MPs plot to oust the Prime Minister.

Anoosh Chakelian, Ailbhe Rea and Stephen Bush discuss what has been dubbed the “pork pie plot” as it unfolds, and what the defection signals for the Labour Party.
