After the failure to properly launch the Rwanda plan to stop the boats, many members of the Conservative Party are concerned about Prime Minister Rishi Sunak's leadership skills.
Most memorably, after her dismissal, ex Home Secretary Suella Braverman voiced her doubts in her open letter to the Prime Minister that she posted on social media sight X, formerly known as Twitter.
Braverman referenced the promises Mr Sunak failed to keep when she wrote ‘You have manifestly and repeatedly failed to deliver on every single one of these key policies. Either your distinctive style of government means you are incapable of doing so. Or, as I must surely conclude now, you never had any intention of keeping your promises.’
She then later criticised the Prime Ministers governing style following the pro-Palestine demonstrations that later caused police disruptions by counter-protestors that were riled up by Braverman herself. She added ‘I regret to say that your response has been uncertain, weak, and lacking in the qualities of leadership that this country needs.’
The ex Home Secretary while fuelled by vitriol is not far off on how other members of the Conservative Party feel. Many right-wing-leaning conservative voters also feel as though they have been left on the back burner.
When the cabinet reshuffle took place Conservative MP Danny Kruger said ‘“We are concerned that reshuffle indicates a major change in the policy direction of the government. The Conservative party now looks like it is deliberately walking away from the coalition of voters who brought us into power with a large majority in 2019.”
The cabinet reshuffle saw former Prime Minister David Cameron elected by Mr Sunak as Foreign Secretary. This was however not supported by the British public with 46% of voters saying that appointing Cameron was a wrong choice on Sunak’s part.
With the next general election said to be expected in January of 2025, many Tory voters feel that the Prime Minister is ill-equipped for the role. Many members of parliament from both Labour and Conservative sides are pushing towards an early general election to take place in the first half of 2024, Although it seems like an unlikely fate.
