So is the Daily Mail but interestingly the Murdoch press backed Badenoch. The days of newspapers deciding general elections ( “ It was the Sun wot won it” ) are over in the age of the internet but the Tory press will still be a factor for the next PM given the very narrow blinkered electorate that makes up the membership of the Conservative party. It will all end in tears.

But Tugendhat has his fair amount of detractors on the party’s right, the chief whip, Mark Spencer, is said to have nicknamed him “Tom Tugendtwat” for his pointed criticism of the government and its actions on the world stage, including rebellions on aid, the trade bill and vehement criticism of the Kabul evacuation operation.

I know it's ridiculous Labour should be hammering the Tories but instead they are fighting amongst themselves sadly.

Starmer is clueless.

He sacked someone for being on a picket. How utterly bizarre for a Labour Leader.

Has to be, though the comedy gold keeps on coming. They are tearing each other apart and all sorts of nonentities and grotesques are throwing their hats in the ring. Hard to say who’s the worst so far though Truss and Braverman are certainly contenders. Meanwhile Sunak is being attacked as a “traitor” by Bojo allies and described by the ridiculous Rees-Mogg as the “ much lamented socialist Chancellor.” Javid also been lambasted. You couldn’t make it up. Civil war for the next few months !
