Lies, Falsehoods and Misrepresentations from Boris Johnson to Rishi Sunak

‎”Liz’s plan for the economy is founded on true Conservative principles of low tax, a lean state and bold supply-side reform”

Facts

Within weeks of taking office Liz Truss sparked a financial crisis

Verdict

Tugendhat’s statement was wrong. He was misleading Tory voters, with terrible consequences for Britain. Truss’ plan for the economy led, within a few weeks, to national humiliation. Times columnist Matthew Parris classified Tugendhat  as one of “many senior Tories who surely knew well enough that the new leader would be calamitous but who slithered into the ranks of her supporters when it became clear she would win and who wanted a job.”

We emailed Tom Tugendhat’s office offering him the chance to respond. The email was received, but no reply.
