    Boris Johnson’s reputation as an election winner has come to an end with a double by-election loss and the resignation of Oliver Dowden as party chairman. In Tiverton and Honiton, the Conservatives saw a majority of 24,000 evaporate as the Liberal Democrats triumphed. In Wakefield, the “red wall” constituency won by the Conservatives in 2019 was taken back by Labour.

    On the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson is joined by deputy political editor Sam Coates in Tiverton, chief political correspondent Jon Craig in Wakefield and political correspondent Tamara Cohen in Westminster.

Great Podcast

Niall has a very professional style of delivering news, getting to the heart of the story whilst fairly hearing out and presenting all sides. These podcasts are going exactly that in more depth for the important issue of the day. Well worth listening to

Thought Provoking Analysis and Experiences

As the war in Ukraine evolves, this podcast gives a thought provoking analysis and shares real life experiences of what’s going on right there on the ground. Presented in a very ethical and fair way. Thankyou.

An informative listen every day

I started listening to the Sky News Daily wanting to branch out from my usual roster of news podcasts. It’s a great listen; always informative and intriguing. Not too long, although I notice just long enough when the topic warrants it. I enjoy that each day focuses on one topic, explaining the context and exploring the significance of it. I much prefer it to other daily podcasts (sorry BBC Newscast) where it feels like at Sky, the team presents the news seriously. I can go ahead with my day informed about *the* story of the day. A recommended source for your daily news.
