Our political correspondent Sophia Sleigh joins the podcast after the Prime Minister was savaged by MPs from all sides of the house during a debate on Afghanistan.

But he sought to justify leaving Afghanistan by outlining the “hard reality” that the West could not continue the US-led mission without American support.
