A week for the Prime Minister, who was truly one of the longest in politics



The news is on steroids. With the Prime Minister in danger, Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss are on maneuvers, we reveal.

Backbenchers are now openly discussing which of them they should support as Boris Johnson’s successor.

This week, the Chancellor met with more than 100 Conservative MPs,
to discuss the cost of living pressure. Of course, the prospect of running for office of the Conservative Party could not have been further from his mind.

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Truss will be having dinner with Tory MPs this weekend.

“She regularly meets MPs to talk about foreign policy,” says a source close to her. I hope they have a fascinating discussion of British soft power in Equatorial Africa. And those of you who are social liberals, keep the garlic closer: Priti Patel also sets his vision for Britain.

As Harold Wilson reportedly remarked in 1964, a week is a long time in politics. Last week, the culture minister supported demands that the BBC broadcast the national anthem every night.

On Friday, No. 10 apologized to the Queen for holding two Downing Street lockdown parties on the eve of her husband’s funeral.

The overwhelming detail of this latest, rule-breaking celebration includes a basement DJ as well as a lackey sent out with a suitcase
to buy wine.

Dominic Cummings is on a revenge mission. He has a grid that he uses to plan harmful leaks against Johnson, she writes, with a source saying, “He does his best work in the gutter.”

Against this chaotic background, Tory MPs worry about how
The government can continue to function and deliver a “normal” agenda.

On Wednesday, Fælleden ran out of things to do and raised at 15.30! This gives more time to plot.

Okay, take your empty suitcase, get down in the Co-op to the wine entrance, and see you on Monday.
