Boris Johnson is the clear favourite to replace Theresa May. He easily made it to the final along with Jeremy Hunt after getting backing from more than 100 Tory MPs. But things have gone a bit wrong for him after his neighbours recorded a row with his girlfriend Carrie Symonds and gave it to the press. He’s also faced criticism for hiding from TV debates – Jeremy Hunt has told him to “man up”. So with a less than a month to go before we have a new Prime Minister, just how vulnerable is Boris Johnson? We speak to BBC Political Correspondent Ben Wright and Joanne Nadler, author of “Too Nice to be a Tory”. We also hear from Nels Abbey, author of “Think Like A White Man”, who tells us how things would be different for Boris Johnson if he were black. Producers: Philly Beaumont, Alicia Burrell Mixed by Nicolas Raufast Editor: John Shields.
