Wakey, Wakey – By-Election Emergencycast

As the Tories suffer two crushing by-election losses and Oliver Dowden resigns, mark this a good morning for Britain. In a special by-election emergencycast, Ros Taylor and Ian Dunt discuss the fallout from a disastrous night for the Conservatives, what next for Johnson’s leadership, and if Labour and the Lib Dems have finally worked out how to defeat the Tories.

“Dowden doesn’t have any honour whatsoever, it’s very good that he’s resigned.” - Ian Dunt

“The worse things are at home, the more time Johnson spends overseas” - Ros Taylor

“If the Tories are threatened with extinction, they will find the necessary changes to get rid of the problem.” - Ian Dunt

“What we’re seeing is a deal between Starmer and Davey, and voters reading the signals.” - Ian Dunt

“If the Conservatives change their leader, they can win the next election.” - Ian Dunt
