Senior Conservatives are set to call for Liz Truss to resign

Move along now: perhaps the choice of “Getting Britain Moving” as the slogan for the Tory conference wasn’t such a good idea for Liz Truss – as now they want her to move out of Downing Street.

It seems Labour won’t have the chance to claim Liz Truss’s political scalp – her own party is going to take it instead.

The BBC is reporting the following:

A group of senior Conservatives have decided to call publicly on Liz Truss to resign following her sacking of Kwasi Kwarteng as chancellor.

The party grandees held their discussions and made their decision to act after reports emerged the prime minister was planning to sack her chancellor, which has since been confirmed.

The senior Tories are planning to speak out next week.

One figure involved in the discussions told BBC Newsnight: “These are serious people. The PM will find it hard to survive.”

The senior Tories, including former cabinet ministers, believe the prime minister’s position is untenable because Kwarteng was carrying out her policies.

The source said: “Liz Truss campaigned on these tax cuts. Liz Truss won the Tory leadership contest on the basis of this programme. It is absurd for her to blame Kwasi.”

The Tory source warned that Truss had made a mistake if she thought Kwarteng had no political base within the parliamentary party.

The source said: “People like Kwasi. He is friendly. He’s honest. Maybe a bit too honest. Maybe that’s his problem.”

Truss’s press conference is to take place at 2.30pm.

With the above in mind, what is she going to say?
