Two new Conservative MPs give Christopher Hope no-holds-barred accounts of their experiences of standing in the 2019 General Election. Richard Holden, the new MP for North West Durham, tells the podcast how he punched a hole in Labour’s “red wall”, while Joy Morrissey, the new MP for Beaconsfield, explains how she unseated former Tory Attorney General, Dominic Grieve.

They share their tips for future candidates (among them: don’t bring Hugh Grant on the campaign trail) and recall the moment they knew they had won, plus they reveal how they plan to hold onto their voters beyond Brexit.
