Why did Liz Truss meet Tory rule-maker Graham Brady? Is she on the way out?

Prime minister Liz Truss was in a meeting with 1922 Committee Chairman Sir Graham Brady yesterday – possibly when she should have been responding to an urgent question in Parliament about the economic chaos her recklessness has caused.

What reason could she have had for this meeting? Only one presents itself: a significant number of Conservative MPs have submitted letters of “no confidence” in her leadership, despite the fact that, under Tory rules, she should be free from challenge until September next year.

Brady could change the rules, of course, although he has said a majority of Tory MPs would need to agree to that – 60 or 70 per cent.

Or he may have simply asked her to resign.

That’s what this vlogger, Professor Tim Wilson, thinks:

Truss herself has apologised – and Hunt has backed her – saying she will still be here for Christmas. Meanwhile, Tories are lining up to call for her resignation and one has to question whether the drinks reception she held for the cabinet at 10 Downing Street yesterday (October 17) will have helped her:

Professor Wilson has a comment about whether she’ll be here for Christmas:

What a perceptive line: “Much like the turkey!”
