HUGE setback for Rishi Sunak – Former Tory leadership contender Tom Tugendhat backs Liz Truss to be PM.

Tom Tugendhat, a former candidate for the Tory leadership, has endorsed Liz Truss in the contest to become prime minister, dealing Rishi Sunak a severe setback.

According to Mr Tugendhat’s article in The Times, the foreign secretary can unify the party because her tax cut proposals are founded on “true Conservative principles.”

He said: “Liz has always stood up for British values at home, and abroad. With her at the helm, I have no doubt that we will move with determination to make this country safer and more secure.”
