With days to go till Boris Johnson’s alternative is introduced, host Ailbhe Rea considers whether or not the Conservatives are actually on their approach out of workplace — or whether or not that is only one extra intelligent shape-shift from probably the most profitable political occasion on the planet. She meets Johnson’s cheerleaders and his critics, grassroots members and knowledgeable advisers, to debate how Boris Johnson modified the Tory Occasion — and what on earth it should do when he’s gone.
Ailbhe asks Nadine Dorries, the tradition secretary and an early Boris believer, about what makes Boris Johnson a winner. David Gauke, the previous justice secretary, and ex-minister Margot James recall being ousted from the occasion through the Brexit wars of 2019, and unpick how the occasion has modified. Rachel Wolf, the co-author of the Conservative manifesto from 2019, explains how Boris Johnson consciously went after new voters, whereas pollster James Johnson discusses the massive challenges forward. At hustings in Norwich, grassroots Conservative members share their ideas on the place the occasion goes subsequent.
