In this week's 'News Roundtable' episode, host Chris Wright talks with Ben Smoke, commissioning editor of HUCK magazine, Murad Qureshi, former London Assembly Member, and Samantha Smith, Columnist for the Spectator and the Daily Mail.

The conversation starts with the panel discussing the shocking announcement of Liz Truss’ resignation – was this necessary? Together, they debate the Prime Minister's record-breakingly short time in Downing Street.

The panel questioned why the Conservative Party membership and Conservative MPs had turned their back so quickly on Liz Truss after voting for her during the leadership contest. Will MPs vote to have a snap election?

The panel discusses the possibility of the Conservative Party splitting, is the Labour party only ahead in the polls because the Tories are so far behind? Together, they also debate whether a general election would be beneficial to the economy during this period of unrest.

Finally, the panel predict the potential candidates for the second leadership contest of the year and speculate whether Boris Johnson could return to Number 10.

All this and much more are debated on this week's Wright on the Nail!

'I Hit The Nail Right On The Head' by Billy Bremner.
