What is the future of the Tory party?

What is the future of the Tory party?

The News Agents · 2024-07-09

A tale of two thinktanks - you lucky things.

Jon has spent the day at the Tony Blair Institute and Emily has been with the Popular Conservatives (PopCons), Liz Truss' former parish.

After the worst result in their history, how does the Conservative party rebuild?

And what lessons are those on the right of the party taking away from Thursday night's defeat? Lewis talks to former party treasurer and donor, Lord Michael Spencer, about the direction for the party now.

Later, crunch time for Joe Biden - will his own party really seek to remove him before the week is done?
