As the Tories are trounced in two by elections is there any way back for Rishi Sunak?

Labour overturned Peter Bone’s 18,000 majority in the Northamptonshire seat of Wellingborough – a “catastrophically bad” defeat according to Gavin Barwell, an ex Conservative MP and Theresa May’s former chief of staff.

Labour also overcame an 11,000 majority in Kingswood in South Gloucesteshire.

This is obviously great news for Keir Starmer; but Reform UK, the party that grew from the ashes of UKIP came third in both by elections offering a threat to the Tories on the right.

Adrian Goldberg talks to Byline Times political editor Adam Bienkov and Jon Tonge, professor of politics at Liverpool University.
