After the Tories’ drubbing in the local elections and the many, many rumors about efforts to unseat Rishi Sunak, Aggie Chambre talks us through how to prepare a secret Conservative leadership campaign.

Former No. 10 head of political comms Adam Jones takes us inside Liz Truss’s “fizz with Liz” soirees, explains why she took *that* picture in the tank, and says his former boss got “punch drunk” on love from Tory members. 

Former adviser Lucia Hodgson, who ran Andrea Leadsom’s 2019 leadership bid, explains the years of work they put into that campaign, and reveals why you need to know everything you can about your opponents. 

Aggie speaks to former Tory contender Michael Heseltine about what he did and did not do before his infamous run in 1990 — about his regrets, supporters and missteps. 

And former Cabinet minister Nadine Dorries claims it’s nigh on impossible to get any work done in government when everyone is so obsessed with who the next leader of the Conservative Party will be.
