Zac Goldsmith has quit as a Tory MP in protest over the decision to expand Heathrow – triggering a by-election in his Richmond Park seat. He hopes to return as an independent. In this week’s podcast we discuss what his plan is and whether the Lib Dems will be able to snatch the seat off him. As a senior Lib Dem source said, if the party threw the kitchen sink at the Witney by-election, it plans to throw a “five story house” at Richmond Park.
Also this week, we talk about the latest in Brexit, the war in Yemen and whether everything is now fine within Labour following Jeremy Corbyn’s re-election. Spoiler alert: It’s not.
