Promising to deliver a bold plan Liz Truss has given no details of how she intends to tackle the cost of living crisis and spend more, while cutting taxes. She will have to unite a Tory party bitterly divided with a win which was weaker than Johnson, May, Cameron, Howard and Duncan Smith.
Liz Truss won the Conservative leadership with 57.4% of the vote –
Rishi Sunak did better than some predicted at 42.6%.
The turnout was 82% – that means Liz Truss got the votes of just under half of the full Conservative membership of 172,000.
