The Leader / Plan B lifted, but poll shows Tory support 'plunges' in London

Listen on

Episode notes

Boris Johnson has announced Plan B measures, including work from home guidance and compulsory mask wearing, will be lifted next week.

His decision will be well received by many people, but it comes as the latest YouGov poll puts Labour 32 points ahead of the Conservatives in London.

In a series of other shocks for the Tories, it also showed that two thirds of Londoners believe the Prime Minister should resign.

The Evening Standard’s Political Editor Nicholas Cecil explains what the poll results mean for the Conservatives, and what Boris Johnson must do next to win over MPs and the general public after the ‘Partygate scandal’.
