The jewel in Sky’s audience crowd last night, however, was undoubtedly Tom Harding, who went to town on Liz over her regional pay boards u-turn before almost starting a fight with a fellow audience member standing up for her. Harding, it transpires, is none other than Anna Soubry’s former chief of staff…Typical biased claptrap from SLY NEWS>

Sunak hammered her in this debate. She was all filler words & is only offering to give £150 a year off a £4000 bill. Sunak has a history of spending money to help the country through furlough, eat out to help out & the £12000 energy grant. I believe he will go further when the energy cap rises. He also has some good policies.

None of them are very inspiring

Liz changes her mind like she changes her knickers to fit in with the what is popular. All she wants is to win..say what pleases the public. Where is the credibility? Liz has changed her mind on so many issues. This seems like her personality. It happens year after year. Who is lying Rishi or Liz?

U turner what if she took after she elected?

Utkarsh Roy August 5, 2022 - 4:22 PM

Sunak is the right one

Alan Mikkelson August 5, 2022 - 4:30 PM

With either of these in power the Tories will lose the next election ,but their egos wont allow them to see it

Rishi Sunak practising hindu islamophobic in Conservative party. Absolute douchebag who trying to win vote to say garbage against Muslims. I want to know what these two candidates would do tackle islamophobic within their political party.

Don't take this wrong but it's the brown face that will stop him becoming PM

All the candidates for PM have been a 'B' team. As far as this event goes, I would be interested to see how the audience was selected. As to the two candidates, Sunak is slick with a quick brain, but Truss seems more gutsy .. becoming a closer contest.

kate torode August 5, 2022 - 5:52 PM

Truss equals total puppet with no brain who likes to fight democracy . Sunnak at least doesn't want t go down in history as a failure n has more ability to learn. If we have t have 1 I really hope it's not the dumb warmongering dictator. She may make out she's 1 of the people but really she's a sell out

kate torode August 5, 2022 - 6:01 PM

The last thing we need is the West picking fights n breaking more agreements. Fix the frikin UK!

Sunak going back to the swamp after his failed , traitorous bid

We are screwed who ever gets in there, they are both as bad as each other and all of them are corrupt.
