RISHI Sunak would ‘divide’ party and ‘LOSE’ next election in ‘double disaster’ for the Tories.
Regarded as a Remainer who ignited a coup to force the ‘sitting prime minister’ Boris Johnson out of power , after winning a 80-seat majority for The Conservative Party in 2019.
Such betrayal against the Prime Minister by a sinister former Chancellor has not been welcomed by the Tory membership, as 8000 members have now signed a petition supporting Boris Johnson to stay on as Prime Minister .
Lord Cruddas, writing in The Mail, said: “The ousting of Boris Johnson as Prime Minister by a minority of MPs is deeply anti-democratic. It defies the will of the country and the Conservative Party members who elected him.
It amounts to a coup. I am ashamed that this can happen in Britain, the birthplace of modern democracy. If that’s what politics has become, we’re living in a nation I can barely recognise any longer.”
