The Tory contenders to be the next PM won’t discuss how to tackle the crises facing the country and are only interested in slagging each other off, and saying how much they are going to cut taxes and shrink the state.
So Owl is not surprised that they aren’t interested in trying to convince the general public they have got what it takes to be Prime Minister.
So, for now, all “public debate” is off.
Sky News has just announced it has cancelled the Tory leadership debate planned for tomorrow night after Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss said they would not take part. This is from Sky’s Tamara Cohen.
