Liz Truss is now the bookies’ favourite to succeed Boris Johnson as prime minister as the Tory leadership race approaches its final stages.
Truss has declared she is the “only person who can deliver the change” the UK needs which is in “line with true Conservative principles”.
In a comment piece for The Daily Telegraph, the leadership hopeful outlined the pitch she is planning to deliver to colleagues on Wednesday in the final round of the MPs’ contest.
As well as promising to unite the Tory party after weeks of division and turmoil that was further highlighted by the televised debates, the Foreign Secretary pledged to enact “the biggest economic change we have seen in 30 years”.
If she was to win the leadership, Truss said her plan to get “our economy moving” would centre on tax cuts, deregulation and tough reform.

For those with no say, here is a frightening reminder of what’s to come!
