10:11 pm
steadied in response, but the conservative party was pulling at a historic low on wednesday the home secretary. so ela, braverman resigned after breaking the ministerial code of conduct. and finally, on thursday, prime minister list trust, resigned after a wave of tory and peace called for her to step down. okay, will join me now is mo hussain her former conservative party special advisor. he's also the u. k. president, president of edelman global advisory. and welcome to the program 1st that your thoughts on this sir turbulent day. we're certainly been tablet and dramatic and i've been 10 years working in westminster and white hall. and i can remember a day like this dispute. the writing was on the wall, there was head is team building from different nps, from different factions of the conservative party. not just in my call, the usual suspects who have never me like the prime minister than people who are from her when the party who were,
10:12 pm
are frustrated that she had you tell them you think that she had promised them that she would do. so when you have is different groupings turning against you and you need these empties, you need their support to get your agenda through parliament. then you know you're in trouble. so i do think it was a matter of time. just talking about the choreography of what happened, sir. next, it's clear the conservative party want to have this done and dusted as quickly as possible. but does it make sense to open this vote up to party members? not just mpg, but party members who have found themselves burnt last time round when they banked less trust. well deducting debate going on around how this would work. and it seems to me, if you can keep this amongst n p 's who are the, they are elected and represent a whole range of constituents, then that would be helpful because if nobody's interests, to have a long drawn out and very, very pers,
10:13 pm
no and bloody leadership contest, the way to do guys, to people to coalesce around one candidate. i think that will be difficult. there's lots of ego play. it is those people who do want to talk who are not going blink 1st and say no, you go, i might get a good job in your government. and therefore, if there is this lack of agreement, and there are a few people you get down the last to then it will go back to the party members and the members have been burned. they made a choice, it didn't work out the things that they thought they're going to get they, they, when able to get to, they'll still remember that. and then also think about who is the person who can win an election going forward as well? well, let's talk candidates who stand out names for you. well, the names are very similar to what we were a few months ago, so we don't feel a bit like groundhog day, but i do think some of that receives tonight. he did come on the majority of n p 's,
10:14 pm
a lot of the things that he said in his leadership campaign about this trusted economic plans have proven to be broadly accurate. so i think his plan is quite of the treasury will be useful for dealing with the challenges that we face now. the country actually on the economy a, he's a bit more devices and there was the main piece. you don't like him because they think he was, he damaged boris in his reputation. he was just an oil penny more than again, another good candidate who did well, perhaps surprisingly low compared to what people are expected to to do, but the bar is so high now. so you can filter through lots of people who just won the job and may have a wing of the party supporting the e to have a 100 and b. this is very, very high under them be by the 1st stage. and if you don't get that, you can knock time think this is deliberate, so it's a quick contest and you perhaps can a more mainstream. canada. ok, mo,
