‘Forces that be’ are backing Liz Truss for Conservative leader, claims Rishi Sunak


Elsewhere in his speech, Mr Sunak sought to create a clear dividing line between himself and Ms Truss as he implicitly criticised her proposed tax cuts, which she says will help decrease inflation.

“If we are to deliver on the promise of Brexit, then we’re going to need someone who actually understands Brexit, believes in Brexit, voted for Brexit,” he told the crowd, to cheers.

In a speech punctuated by frequent applause, he also said: “We have to tell the truth about the cost of living.

“Rising inflation is the enemy that makes everyone poorer and puts at risk your homes and your savings. And we have to tell the truth about tax.

“I will not put money back in your pocket knowing that rising inflation will only whip it straight back out.”

Sunak focused on ‘critical things’

Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab, who backs Mr Sunak, has sought to draw a clear dividing line between his candidate and contender Liz Truss.

He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that Mr Sunak did not think it was “responsible” to reverse the health and social care levy, stressing that it would take money away from the NHS and make solving issues such as waiting lists much harder.
