On the day British Prime Minister Boris Johnson apologized for a party on Downing Street during the May 2020 lockout, diplomat Liz Truss was sitting next to him in parliament. But Finance Minister Rishi Sunak was hundreds of kilometers away and spearheaded the effort to create jobs. In the Johnson fire (and daily new scandals), the support of the so-called favorites to come after him is very different.
“It is good that the Prime Minister has apologized and supported the demand that Sue Gray be patient while conducting his investigation,” he said. At the end of the question and answer session in Parliament, Sunak wrote on Twitter that he had discussed the energy situation, putting forward a plan to create jobs. But other than that, the party has been practically silent on corruption. Sunak, 41, has been finance minister since 2020 (five years after he entered parliament) and a favorite of bookmakers since Johnson.
Truss, 46, has been overwhelmingly supportive of the PM, but it is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. “The Prime Minister is delivering results for the UK – from Brexit to the booster vaccine program to economic growth. I will support the Prime Minister 100% for the betterment of our country. ” The head of state and Brexit minister of the day wrote on Twitter that he held the portfolio of Women and Equality and had held various positions in the last three governments.
In statements to the ITV station yesterday, he argued that people should “go ahead” and wait for the outcome of the official investigation. After it was already revealed The night before Lord Edinburgh’s funeral, there were not one but two parties on Downing Street in April. The funeral was marked by the image of Queen Elizabeth II, whom he had married for 73 years, sitting alone in the church at Windsor Castle due to the distance. The Prime Minister’s Office has already sent an apology to the King and its spokesman reminded reporters that Johnson was at his official country house at the time.
Liz Truss, already known by some as the new “Iron Lady” (known as Margaret Thatcher), is another favorite next to Johnson. But the list of possible candidates includes already regular names like Michael Cove (he twice tried to lead the Conservatives), former diplomat and health minister Jeremy Hunt, interior minister Priti Patel or the judiciary, Dominic Rob. The signature of 54 of the 360 Conservative representatives is enough to trigger an audit resolution against the party leader, although he can “survive” that vote, and if so, he will be safe from another vote for a year. .
