LIZ TRUSS AND RISHI SUNAK WILL VISIT THE ISLE OF WIGHT THIS WEEK

Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak, who are battling it out to become the new leader of the Conservative party and therefore the next Prime Minister, will be visiting the Isle of Wight later this week.

Favourite Liz Truss will be vying for votes from the Isle of Wight’s Conservative members when she appears in Newport tomorrow afternoon (Friday).

It had been hoped that both candidates could visit the Island on the same day but this has not been possible. Therefore, Rishi Sunak will be paying a visit to Sandown the following day on Saturday afternoon.

Hundreds of local Conservatives are expected to attend the 2 private events to hear each candidate’s policies and thoughts, especially when they are pressed on specific Isle of Wight issues.

It’s obvious which will be voted in, all so P.C now, and with a massive recession coming, the rioting in inner cites may be more muted with a Bruv at the helm.

Surely though as he was the in control of the UK’s finances, and has clearly messed it up, the ‘trust’ has gone in him, despite as you say the P.C and media hype of having a coloured PM?

Doubt it will quell the likely coming city riots though, as they don’t like anyone of authority even the emergency services trying to help the injured, but like Obama, it may pacify the less volatile who won’t be satisfied until like S Africa, the Caucasians are not running the show.

That turned out well for them……….didn’t it?

Do you have to be an old bigot with a questionable IQ to post comments on here or can anyone do it?

What are either of these two going to do about the rip-off ferries? That would be my only question.

They have bigger fish to fry than some ferry ticket pricing.

I prefer the higher ferry prices, as if it were free, imagine just how many more low lives, travellers and ethnics would drift over to make it all even worse.

The higher prices limits low life, accept the drug dealers who are making so much they can afford the fares, but it would be far far worse if cut too much.

Looking at many of the holiday makers, he will think he still is there.

Wonderful what a draw to a cold, vastly different and unfamilar land, tax credits, child allowance and subsidised rent and c.tax, along with free health and education can draw in.

Wow it will be back to the 1970s again, rubbish in the streets, riots. power cuts. All we need is a bit more anger from the public at large, and get rid of all these snowflakes out there who think that the wider world doesn’t seem to include them, well I am sorry but it does. “They made you a moron, potential H-Bomb”

Hopefully they will experience the same issues we do on a daily basis with such a unreliable ferry service to the Island
Perhaps one day we’re get someone that understands the implications of trying to run a business on the island ,trying to rely on ferry services that consistently fail to deliver a reliable service

I’m surprised they’re not visiting the poorer West Wight to congratulate ‘local Tory poster boy’ and Parish (always thinking and caring for the local community) Councillor for his much misunderstood house building and cycle track trickery. Irony, hypocrisy and local perceptions – doncha jus luv it?

When quizzed about the Ombudsman’s decision for recompense on the WASPI situation recently he was tongue-tied. I wonder if Mr Sunak is aware that the Island is the largest WASPI stronghold in the country with 10,400 individuals affected?

So glad I’m on the mainland for three weeks. Have no time for either them. They are not fit to lead the country
