Sky News political correspondent Rob Powell and chief political correspondent Jon Craig discuss the fallout from Boris Johnson’s decision to step down as an MP.

He’s forced one of three by-elections after close Conservative colleagues Nadine Dorries and Nigel Adams also decided to leave the Commons immediately.

Rob and Jon consider how Rishi Sunak and his party will react to the prospect of the by-elections, and what this moment could mean for uniting – or further dividing – the Conservative benches.

They also discuss the report from the Commons privileges committee that might have been the catalyst for the former PM’s resignation.
