Liz for Leader

Earlier this month the Conservative Home website showed Liz Truss leading Rishi Sunak by 32% polling 60% membership support versus 28% for Sunak.
So, one must ask why hasn’t Sunak thrown in the towel and conceded that the gap (which has shown no sign of closing) is too big to allow him to achieve a majority of party voters. (Spoiler alert: I voted for Truss).
The answer must be that Sunak has been saying the Hindu equivalent of Hail Marys hoping for a slip up by Truss.
It seemed as though his prayers had been answered, when Truss was reported saying that as a country, we need to work better as our productivity has for a long time lagged behind that of our rivals. The usual suspects have derided these comments as attacks on the working man, but we do need to achieve greater productivity and stop resisting more effective ways of being more productive.
The railwaymen’s strike is a good case in point where they wish to keep all ticket offices open, when it is no longer necessary to keep each office manned.
Fortunately, the Truss supporters have rallied to her side.
The Left wish to dictate our choices, often by removing them or by seeking to occupy a spurious higher ground.
Earlier this year Liz Truss was criticised for lunching a U.S. Trade Representative at a private Mayfair club. The lunch for ten people cost £1,400, which all in all doesn’t seem too bad.
If Labour was not afraid of Liz Truss, they would not try to denigrate her.
Sunak should concede the battle and let the party get on with winning the next election.
Meanwhile I voted for Liz some time ago.
