Tories Discuss Replacing Sunak Before General Election to Prevent Labour Landslide

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak could well be ousted before he gets to see the general election as reports surface revealing Tory Ministers discussing a “care-taker Prime Minister” to “hold off” a Labour victory.

Cabinet Discussions on Sunak’s Future

Recent discussions among Cabinet ministers have revolved around the possibility of replacing Rishi Sunak before the general election that’s expected to be announced for Autumn.

The discussions have revolved around the potential benefits of appointing a caretaker leader to help mitigate the expected surge in support for the opposition Labour Party. According to the report from Bloomberg, the caretaker Prime Minister would be appointed to “hold back” the “opposition Labour Party surge that many fear is coming.”

Polls Show Fears Could Come True

A recent Ipsos poll showed that the Conservative Party’s fears could be coming true, revealing that 80% of the public would not vote for them in the next general election. After recent scandals and racism allegations, many Tory MPs are allegedly losing confidence in Sunak’s ability to secure another four years of Tory rule.

The Conservatives suffered heavy defeats in by-elections in recent months, twice losing out to Labour candidates before losing to George Galloway in Rochdale.

Tory Defeat Leads to Public Address

George Galloway, leader of the Workers Party of Britain, achieved a landslide victory, resulting in Prime Minister Rishi Sunak delivering an address to the public to shame Galloway.

Sunak called Galloway’s victory “Beyond alarming” due to his stance on the Israel-Palestine conflict with Sunak calling Pro-Palestine protestors “extremists.”

Tory MPs are worried about Sunak’s response to the ongoing accusations of racism and Islamophobia within the Tory Party that has increased over the last few weeks.

Anderson’s Suspension

Former Tory MP Lee Anderson was suspended after he claimed that the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, was under the “control” of “Islamists.” After waiting an entire weekend to issue a response to the comments, Sunak refused to say whether he believed Anderson’s comments were indeed “Islamophobic.”

Anderson was echoing former Home Secretary Suella Braverman’s comments, where she insisted that “Islamists” and “Extremists” were “in charge” of the UK now.

Sunak again refrained from saying whether he believed Braverman’s comments were racist and denied claims of Islamophobia within the Tory Party when asked.

Starmer Questions Sunak’s Judgement

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer questioned Sunak’s judgement to appoint Lee Anderson as Deputy Chair after Anderson’s rhetoric, which Starmer claimed was an “appalling racist and Islamophobic outburst.”

Starmer asked Parliament, “But what does it say about the prime minister’s judgement that he made Lee Anderson deputy chairman of his party?”

Another Tory scandal came to light recently, as Labour MP Diane Abbott was subject to racist and violent language from a Tory donor, Frank Hester.

Hester’s Racism Unveiled

Frank Hester, who gave a ten million pound donation to the Tory Party this year, claimed that Diane Abbott made him “want to hate all black women.”

Hester also insisted that Abbott “Should be shot” for her politics although has since admitted that his comments were “rude” but refrained from apologising.

Sunak took 24 hours to respond to the comments, arguing that Hester showed “remorse” and that’s enough for them to accept his multi-million-pound donation.

Sunak to be Ousted?

These allegations of racism and Islamophobia, combined with Sunak’s delayed responses and refusal to accept responsibility, have resulted in Tory MPs deciding whether Sunak should be ousted before it’s too late.
