The Guardian says the prime minister is “embroiled in an extraordinary standoff” with Lord Zac Goldsmith after he quit as a Foreign Office minister. The paper writes that Lord Goldsmith resigned with a personal attack on Rishi Sunak, warning him that voters would punish him over his climate “apathy”.
