A new Prime Minister and a challenge for Labour leader

The IWA Podcast discusses Theresa May’s impending move to 10 Downing Street and Angela Eagle’s leadership challenge to Jeremy Corbyn.

It’s been a rapid turn of events in Westminster today. With Andrea Leadsom’s withdrawal of her candidacy for Conservative Leader, Theresa May becomes the new Prime Minister without having to go through the full battle leader. David Cameron has this afternoon announced that he will step aside following Wednesday’s PMQs, allowing May to take her place in Number 10.

Elsewhere, Angela Eagle has announced her candidacy as Leader of the Labour Party in an attempt to overthrow current leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The latest IWA Podcast discusses the day’s events. Jess Blair is joined by Rhiannon Passmore, the new AM for Islwyn, Nick Ramsay, AM for Monmouth and Daran Hill, MD of Positif.
