Three British Conservatives called on Truss to step down as prime minister.

Three British Conservatives called on Truss to step down as prime minister.

British Conservative MPs Crispin Blunt, Andrew Bridgen and Jamie Wallis said Prime Minister Liz Truss should step down.

By some accounts, Blunt became the first Tory member to publicly call on the premier to leave.

“No. I think it’s game over,” he responded to a Channel 4 host’s question about whether Truss could “survive”.


According to Blunt, the leadership of the party should be transferred to “combinations” of former Treasury Secretary Rishi Sunak, leader of the House of Commons Penny Mordaunt and Treasury Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

Bridgen said that the country, the people and the party deserve better.
Wallis in turn wrote Truss a letter urging her to resign as she no longer enjoyed Britain’s confidence.
