All is not well in the UK. According to a report by The Times, a survey by YouGov revealed that half of Tory party members think the party has chosen the wrong leader. Party leaders are now considering a joint team of Penny Mordent and Rishi Sunak instead of Truss.
British Prime Minister Liz Truss was elected leader of the Conservative Party last month, but now there is talk once again that she is being considered to be removed from the chair. A YouGov survey showed that half of Tory party members think the party has chosen the wrong leader. According to the report of The Times, a joint team of Penny Mordent and Rishi Sunak is being considered in place of Truss.
In fact, members of the Conservative Party think that they have chosen the wrong leader. This is because the pound saw a fall in the first budget of the Liz Truss itself. Simultaneously, government loan interest rates increased. Backbenchers of the Conservative Party are against PM Truss’s tax-cut economic policies, which they see in favor of the rich. So the troubled MP is now looking at the alternative of 42-year-old Indian-origin former chancellor Rishi Sunak, who was at the forefront of his allies in the race for PM.
It is being said that MPs are considering supporting a joint team of Sunak and Mordent. Simultaneously, MPs are looking at other options, with Penny Mordent’s role as party leader and PM and Rishi Sunak acting as chancellor. This disclosure has come to the fore at a time when the relationship between the Conservative MPs with the PM is not normal.
Last week, Prime Minister Liz Truss sacked Finance Minister Quasi Quarteng from the cabinet. In fact, Quarteng presented the mini-budget at the end of last month, after which the country was witnessing economic turmoil due to the fear of tax cuts.
The Times quoted an MP as saying that Rishi is considering Sunak and Penny Mordent. The leader and prime minister of one of these two parties should be made and the other foreign secretary. Earlier, Indian-origin sage Sunak was chancellor in the Boris Johnson government and had reportedly also warned the truce that the tax-cutting agenda could lead to economic turmoil.
Nadine Dorries, a close MP of Johnson, tweeted that Grandi MP will continue to agitate for Liz Truss’s removal. He also agitated for the removal of Boris Johnson and will agitate until he finds a way. This is a conspiracy to overturn democracy.
Liz Truss was named the leader of the Conservative Party of Britain on 5 September. 47-year-old Truss has become Britain’s third female prime minister. Earlier Margaret Thatcher and Theresa held this position. Liz Truss defeated Rishi Sunak in the election. Truss got 81,326 votes while Sunak got 60,399 votes. Truss said after the victory, I am honored to be elected leader of the Conservative Party. Thank you for believing in me. I will take appropriate steps to lift the country from this tough time and take our economy forward.
