The Brady Crunch

As Johnson says he won’t quit thanks to a newfound sense of responsibility, we assess the chance of him being ousted. No confidence letters to 1922 Committee chair Graham Brady are reportedly nearing the magic 54 number. Will that happen? Then, what next? Plus, with Platty Joobs upon us, we discuss the panel's thoughts on a Royalist shindig. Guardian sketch writer John Crace is our special guest.

“The idea that Johnson might do the decent thing or feel a note of shame… he’d need a character transplant for that.” – John Crace

“You have to be a very anaemic Tory MP to think this can be allowed to rumble on forever.” – Ian Dunt

“It’s getting harder to imagine the Tories winning the next election, whoever is in charge.” – Ros Taylor
