‘The game is up’: UK MPs turn against Truss


Three Conservative MPs on Sunday told new UK Prime Minister Liz Truss that the “game is up” .

Crispin Blunt, MP for Reigate in Surrey, said he does not think the prime minister can survive the crisis and “it’s now a question as to how the succession is managed”.

Andrew Bridgen, MP for North West Leicestershire, then joined the call on Sunday evening, saying “We cannot carry on like this.”

Mr Bridgen, who backed Rishi Sunak in the summer leadership race, said: “Our country, its people and our party deserve better.”

Jamie Wallis, who represents Bridgend in Wales, also confirmed that he had written to Ms Truss, asking her to stand down.

Mr Blunt, who backed Jeremy Hunt in the leadership contest, released a statement on Sunday in which he said that most of his colleagues “clearly understand that Prime Minister Truss’s authority is now fatally damaged”.

“She has to go now as she cannot win nor sustain the confidence of her colleagues, far less the public and a relentless media.

“The principal emotional reactions to her public presentation is now a mixture of anger, contempt and pity.

“It’s a blinding glimpse of the obvious that this cannot and should not continue.”
