Episode notes

Conservative MP Mark Garnier, director of research at Labour Together Christabel Cooper, and professor of politics at Queen Mary University Tim Bale join PoliticsHome's Alain Tolhurst to assess the fallout from the local elections which saw huge losses for the Tories across England including the West Midlands mayoralty and a host of bellwether councils. Plus this week’s surprise defection from the Tories to Labour by the MP Natalie Elphicke.

Presented by Alain Tolhurst, produced by Nick Hilton for Podot, edited by Laura Silver
