In this week's extended podcast we kick off with the resignation of Priti Patel as Secretary of State for International Development.
Lesley speculates on the potential implications for beleaguered Theresa May and asks has she actually been lucky despite all her recent setbacks ?
We discuss the shadowy role of Lord Polack of the Conservative Friends of Israel in Patel's fall from grace and could this be the moment for Penny Mordaunt to stake her claim for the Tory leadership?
Boris Johnson is next in Lesley's gimlet gaze as the full impact of his ill thought and poorly prepared statements give spurious legitimacy to the imprisonment of UK journalist Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe by the Iranian government.
We go into extra time for Lesley's reflections on last Saturday's Build Conference.
All this plus The Gruffalo in Scots , baby boxes,and feral cats.
