Mid-Atlantic - conversations about US, UK and world politics
The Conservative Party leadership race
Today I'm joined by Paul Duddridge a conservative voice on TalkTV, BBC and ITV he is a Writer and Director who is also the Host of ‘The Politics People podcast.
As the prospective leaders for the Conservative party embark on their third round of voting we try and understand just who stands for exactly what and who has the best chance of becoming the next PM of the UK.
Rishi Sunak has topped the first two rounds of voting by MPs. Penny Mordaunt is the bookmakers’ favourite with a sizable lead in polls of party members though that is now slipping while Kemi Badenoch has surged to the top of a Conservative Home member survey.
