Reaction Press Review, the show where Reaction editors discuss the best stories, writing, podcasts and video that have caught their attention in the last week. This week on episode 17 Iain Martin is joined by Maggie Pagano and Alastair Benn.
They discuss whether Boris Johnson can survive Partygate and on what grounds Sue Gray, the senior civil servant who is investigating the party, can decide whether the party was indeed a ‘work event.’ What soaring US inflation means for interest rates and continuing problems in the supply chain also come up for debate.

Paul Goodman, editor of Conservative Home, writes that Sue Gray is unlikely to ‘destabilise’ the Prime Minister in his article Grey suits wait for Sue Gray.
For Boris Johnson, the party really may be over this time.
