The Episode “Boris Johnson pulls out” of “The News Agents
The News Agents convene for a special Sunday night episode. Jon, Emily and Lewis talk through the big news breaking just an hour or so earlier that Boris Johnson, the former Prime Minister, has decided *not* to throw his hat in the ring for this truncated leadership election, despite the backing of dozens of MPs and sizeable support amongst Conservative Party members.
It paves the way for one of either Rishi Sunak, ex-Chancellor, or Penny Mordaunt, Leader of the House of Commons, to become the UK’s third premier of 2022. The former is now well and truly in the driving seat.
If you thought last week was crazy, buckle up for the next few days.
