99 Days in Number Ten
Anne McElvoy tells the story of Boris Johnson's premiership as he sought to take the UK out of the European Union
Anne McElvoy tells the story of Boris Johnson's premiership from the day he took office on 24th July until 31st October, the day set for the UK to leave the European Union. Throughout these dramatic 99 days, we hear from current and former members of Johnson's Cabinet, as well as his friends, allies and critics.
The programme examines key moments and crises in Downing Street including the Prime Minister's controversial decision to suspend Parliament, losing his working majority in the House of Commons, and the thwarted attempt to call a general election. Anne McElvoy speaks to the insiders who have been at the heart of an extraordinarily eventful period in British politics.
