Resignation Special

Politicians resign for all sorts of reasons, in this special the panel examine the art and the fall out of the political resignation.

Matt Chorley is joined by Theo Barclay, author of “Fighters and Quitters” which chronicles some of the great resignations, Sir Craig Oliver, David Cameron’s director of communications, and Jane Merrick, Red Box columnist.

They discuss: what are grounds for quitting, how do you do it with grace and some dignity intact, and is there ever a way back?
