LBC's exclusive phone-in with Rishi Sunak

Britain’s Next PM, hosted by Nick Ferrari, gave LBC’s audiences unique and unfiltered access to the two main contenders for Prime Minister. Sir Keir Starmer was questioned on Tuesday and then Rishi Sunak on Wednesday.

Voters shown clips of both the PM and Labour Leader after their appearance with Nick Ferrari thought Sir Keir was most trusted on the cost of living and the NHS.

But the public demanded less waffle, more authenticity, and more concrete answers from their leaders.The PM and Labour boss faced tough questions from voters on the NHS, strikes, National Service and immigration this week.
