New statement from @ThePleasance about Jerry Sadowitz cancellation. They say they "will not associate with content which attacks people’s dignity and the language used on stage was, in our view, completely unacceptable."

But these stats are interesting. If given the choice, most want Boris Johnson to stay in post. It means the Truss campaign’s smartest move has been casting her as loyal & Sunak as the Chancellor who knifed the PM. … But of course Tory members don’t represent the wider public

I’m surprised that Conservative Party members remain convinced Boris Johnson could have won the next election? Parygate, sleaze, Chris Pincher… I mean. By the end, he was so incredibly disliked by huge swathes of voters & to Tory members it seems like that period didn’t happen

Grasping at straws here. This Tory leadership run is a bad joke to people in dire need of support and direction. Energy bills are forecast to be £4,266 from Jan & the debate is about whether a question is “left wing”
Liz Truss suggests the media was to blame for Boris Johnson's downfall, accuses host @tnewtondunn of asking her a "left-wing question" and says “some of the media” are trying to “talk our country down". I mean, FFS. huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/l…
