Two of Westminster's best-connected journalists, Sky News's Sam Coates and Politico's Jack Blanchard, guide you through their top predictions for the next seven days in British politics. 

The local and mayoral elections are trundling towards us, with Westminster set for the fallout. But don't expect Rishi Sunak to name the date of the general election anytime soon, despite rumours that some MPs are on manoeuvres - hear why on this episode. 

Plus, how will Labour use their predicted successes? And where will the other parties fall?

To find a full list of mayoral candidates in each election, you can use the postcode search here.

Heading north, Holyrood is also poised for an explosive week, with no confidence votes being put down against First Minister Humza Yousaf, and the Scottish government itself.

Jack and Sam look how those votes could play out this week, and why former SNP leadership hopeful turned Alba MSP Ash Regan holds all the power.

They also discuss deputy foreign secretary Andrew Mitchell's big week, and why Monday could throw up a major hot button issue in the House of Commons.
