The coronation of Rishi Sunak MP as the UK’s next Prime Minister by just under 200 MPs is quite astounding. It is the people of our country who should decide who they want to see as in No.10. It is arrogant and undemocratic if the Tory Party don’t now call a General Election.
It is clear for all to see that Mr. Sunak holds the support of just over half of the Conservative Party MPs, and therefore we can expect the infighting to continue; they are completely divided and will continue to put their interests above those of the country.
It was Mr. Sunak who announced, in his last leadership bid, how he was moving funding from areas of deprivation to areas of affluence. So no matter who they put into No.10, it will mean that life will become increasingly challenging for those that need the most support. After 12 years of a Tory Government, people are struggling to pay their bills, their mortgages are going through the roof and waiting lists for the NHS are growing.
We urgently need a Labour Government to clear up the mess left behind by the Tory Party.
