Iain Martin and Tim Montgomerie review one of the Prime Minister’s worst weeks since he became PM. It began with collapsing ratings among party members; involved his gaffe about mining communities that filled a day’s newspaper front pages; and ended with news of a row between Numbers 10 and 11 Downing Street about a leaked letter. The PM apparently threatened to demote his Chancellor to Health Secretary. Are Boris Johnson’s days now numbered? Should they be?
The video ends with a short discussion of the campaigning by left-wing online groups to stop companies like Sainsbury’s from advertising on the Daily Mail and GBNews. Tim argues that these boycotts are a threat to press freedom and conservatives should consider getting organised in opposition to this attack on media diversity.
