Callers to BBC Radio 5 Live have given mixed views in a discussion about whether or not Nadhim Zahawi should be sacked as the Conservative Party chairman.
Speaking to Nicky Campbell, Kelly in Wimbledon said both Zahawi and Prime Minister Rishi Sunak should “step down from their roles”. He added: “As a nation, we’ve lost our
pride. We don’t care anymore.”

Regis described the government as untrustworthy.
Referring to a variety of scandals, he said: “The fact we’ve had parties, tax affairs,
porn in parliament and then the seatbelt from last week. This is going to stay
with us into the next election as to whether we trust the people in power.”
But, there were also been callers who defended Zahawi – including Sunil from Cambridge who encouraged people to move on.
He said: “I would rather spend more time and energy going into the cost of living crisis as opposed to Nadhim Zahawi tax returns.”
Another listener named Daphne agreed: “We have far, far
more important issues to be dealing with”.
