Braverman’s Cabinet comeback & Sunak’s COP27 snub

With Ali Milani, David Prescott and Emily Carver


In this week’s ‘News Roundtable’ episode, host Chris Wright talks with David Prescott, former political adviser, journalist and founder of Larkin PR, Ali Milani, political activist and former Labour Party candidate against Boris Johnson, and Emily Carver, columnist for Conservative Home.

The conversation starts with the guests discussing Suella Braverman’s resignation for breaching the Ministerial Code by sharing information from her personal email address. They debate whether Suella was fired over the breach or because of a falling out with Liz Truss.

The panel discusses the possible reasons why Suella has been reappointed as Home Secretary, following the reveal of multiple breaches of the Ministerial Code – is it because she will be tough on immigration? Did Rishi Sunak agree to reappoint Suella as Home Secretary in a deal so he could become Prime Minister?

The panel touches on Rishi Sunak’s snub of the upcoming COP27 and debates about who should be attending the summit. They also discuss King Charles’ own climate reception, bringing together over 200 international business leaders, decision-makers and NGOs – organised to facilitate discussion of sustainable growth, and continued efforts to tackle climate change. Together, they predict the likelihood of Rishi Sunak making a U-turn on his snub and attending COP27 afterall. 

Finally, the panel discusses the reports that Russian spies hacked Liz Truss’ phone – is our cyber security up to scratch in this country?

All this and much more are debated on this week’s Wright on the Nail!
