Furious Tories take aim at Rishi Sunak in series of speeches after local election drubbing


LEADING Tories took aim at PM Rishi Sunak in speeches yesterday.

Liz Truss branded China the “largest threat to the free world” — despite Mr Sunak defying calls to classify the country as such in March.

Leading Tories took aim at PM Rishi Sunak in speeches yesterday.

At the National Conservatism conference in London, Home Secretary Suella Braverman railed against migration and leftie wokeism — two key Tory battlegrounds.

And Jacob Rees-Mogg labelled the PM’s decision to scrap a deadline to ditch thousands of EU laws as “pathetically under-ambitious”.

The PM is under siege after his party lost 1,060 council seats this month.

Last night Sunak continued his international diplomacy blitz in Iceland for a Council of Europe Summit – where he vowed to double down on his migration promises.

The PM is set to say: “It is very clear that our current international system is not working, and our communities and the world’s most vulnerable people are paying the price.

“We need to do more to cooperate across borders and across jurisdictions to end illegal migration and stop the boats.

“I am clear that as an active European nation with a proud history helping those in need, the UK will be at the heart of this.”
