The Two Tori Higher Ups Have Been Using Their Own Strategies To Get Reserved Brexiteers Loyal To Boris Johnson And Nigel Farage On Their Side

The Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Affairs, Liz Truss, and the former Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, have been the two prime candidates to replace Boris Johnson.

Eight in total are left in the race to become Conservative Party Leader and the Prime Minister, but it's Truss and Sunak the bookies would have you betting on.

Both sides of the coin have to flip in favour of the Brexiteers, who're still loyal to Boris and former Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage.

Rishi Sunak has announced that he will sort out the Northern Ireland Protocol and keeping Unionists in both Northern Ireland and Scotland happy.

Liz Truss on the other hand wishes to scrap the Northern Ireland Protocol entirely, cementing the UK as it's own master and not a slave to Brussels, Paris, or Berlin.

The competition is set to be dramatic, filled with backstabbers and four faced lairs, and can turn ugly very fast.

Things have already heated up with Liz Truss's Stop Rishi campaign, which aims to usurp Rishi as the frontrunner and to install Truss as the third female Prime Minister.

Sunak has countered with his Stop Truss campaign, aimed to keep him in the lead.

What isn't translucent is how all of this will play out, between now and the eventual vote for a new leader.

What is certain is that today is the first round of votes, tomorrow will be the second round, and July the 18th will be the third and final round.

And that July 21st is the deadline to decide the final two candidates, still speculated to be Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak.

Jacob Rees-Mogg has announced that he'd be dropping his bid in favour of Liz Truss over Sunak, stating: “I've decided to support Truss over Sunak on the grounds of policy issues, Brexit, taxation, and raw politics.

It's very interesting that somebody should start a campaign, after he resigned from his post.

Boris Johnson backers are oblivious to the fact that the man they're throwing themselves onto, was instrumental in bringing their Prime Minister down”.
