Tories in open revolt and three names emerge to replace Truss

Three separate rival rebel plots have emerged to overthrow Liz Truss after just five weeks in power.

Scheming MPs want to swap her for a ‘dream ticket’ of leadership rivals Rishi Sunak and Penny Mordaunt.

But some are calling for defence secretary Ben Wallace to take the role – and in a third plot, others think new health secretary Jeremy Hunt is poised for the top job.

Meanwhile, three Tory MPs have also called on Liz Truss to quit as pressure grows on the prime minister.

MP’s Crispin Blunt, Jamie Wallis and Andrew Bridgen have all said the PM should step down, after her disastrous first weeks in government.

Crispin Blunt, MP for Reigate, told Channel 4’s Andrew Neil Show: ‘I think the game is up and it’s now a question as to how the succession is managed.’

He was followed by Andrew Bridgen on Sunday evening, who told the Telegraph: ‘We cannot carry on like this.’

Mr Bridgen, who backed Rishi Sunak in the leadership contest over the summer, said: ‘Our country, its people and our party deserve better.’
