Re: New Prime Minister: TBC

Given the new prime minister is going to be announced within the hour the latest polling suggest the likely prime minister Liz Truss is not very popular with voters.

Quote:
Survation has released some new polling this morning suggesting that Labour has a 10-point lead over the Conservatives – but that if respondents are told Keir Starmer is the Labour leader, and Liz Truss the Tory leader, the Labour lead rises to 17 points.


Quote:
NEW Westminster Voting Intention:
CON 33% (+3)
LAB 43% (-1)
LD 11% (+1)
SNP 4% (-1)
GRE 3% (nc)
Others 5% (-1)
*Changes are in comparison to Survation polling July 8th 2022

Quote:
NEW Westminster Voting Intention, named party leaders including Liz Truss. Change vs today's standard voting intention. LAB lead of 17 points:
CON 29% (-5) change was -4.5, rounds to 5
LAB 46% (+3)
LD 11% (nc)
SNP 4% (nc)
GRE 3% (nc)
OTH 7% (+2):

Agreed.

She inherits a 70+ majority from Johnson so not the end of the world in the short-term but the 2025 election and a potential recession loom large.

Immediate question is her generosity to business and consumers for fuel support. If she adopts the LibDem suggestion of freezing the cap at today's prices I would expect her popularity to rise significantly.

As would government borrowing.

Re: New Prime Minister: TBC

11 letters of no confidence about to go in, poor dizzy lizzy, I'd like to say it's as if they know her but sadly it's more likely an effort to bring bozo back

Some Conservative MPs just can't let go of their beloved Johnson!

Re: New Prime Minister: TBC

Liz Truss is our new Prime Minister.

Quote:

Expected future Cabinet members in front row

Ione Wells

Reporting from QEII Centre, London

Taking front row seats here include some of the people expected to be in Liz Truss's future cabinet if she is announced the winner.

Kwasi Kwarteng, expected to be the next chancellor, and James Cleverley, expected to be the next foreign secretary. But there’s some mingling between the two camps too.

The current chancellor and Truss-backer Nadhim Zahawi is sat next to, and laughing with, the current deputy PM Dominic Raab.

He's a prominent Sunak supporter and it’s not currently expected he’ll have a job in the cabinet by tomorrow.

Re: New Prime Minister: Liz Truss

Truss: 57.4%
Sunak 42.6%

Far closer than many thought.
