Tory backbenchers are now openly debating who could become Boris Johnson’s successor

Backbenchers are now openly debating who to support as Boris Johnson’s successor.

The news is on steroids. With the Prime Minister in danger, Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss are on maneuvers, we reveal.

This week the Chancellor met more than 100 Conservative MPs,
to discuss the cost of living. Of course, he could not have thought further of running for Conservative Party leader.

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Truss will dine with Tory MPs this weekend.

“She regularly meets with MPs to discuss foreign policy,” says a source close to her. I hope you have a fascinating discussion on British soft power in Equatorial Africa. And those of you who are Social Liberal, hold your garlic tighter: Priti Patel also lays out her vision for Britain.

As Harold Wilson allegedly observed in 1964, a week in politics is a long time. Last week the Culture Secretary backed calls for the BBC to broadcast the national anthem every night.

On Friday, No 10 apologized to the Queen for holding two lockdown parties at Downing Street on the eve of her husband’s funeral.

The amazing details of this latest rule-breaking celebration include a basement DJ and a footman who’s sent out with a suitcase
to buy wine.

Dominic Cummings is on a revenge mission. He has a grid he uses to plan damaging leaks against Johnson, she writes, with a source saying, “He’s doing his best job in the gutter.”

Against this chaotic backdrop, Tory MPs are worried, like them
The government can go ahead and deliver a “normal” agenda.

On Wednesday the Commons ran out of work and adjourned at 3:30pm! This leaves more time for plotting.

Right, grab your empty suitcase, head down from the co-op to the winery and see you Monday.
