LBC caller, Amanda savaged Conservative leadership candidate Rishi Sunak for deciding to drop out of the next leadership debate. The caller from Reading claimed Mr Sunak would not be able to handle the job role of being Prime Minister as he can’t take criticism from other people and other countries. Mr Sunak is one of four candidates left in the running to be the next Prime Minister, and by tomorrow there will only be two left in the race as contestants continue to get whittled down.
Amanda told LBC host Nick Ferrari: “Can I just say something!”
Mr Ferrari added: “Please.”
Amanda from Reading said: “Do we really want Sunak as our Prime Minister, ff after a little bit of battle on a stage with his own party members to pull out?
“I mean, If he can’t take that, what is he going to do when he’s Prime Minister and he gets it from left right and centre, from other countries.

“Do we really want a Prime Minister like that? That’s got no backbone?”
Mr Ferrari added: “That’s pulling out of tonight’s TV debate is what you’re saying, is it?”
Amanda from Reading said: “That’s it.”
Despite many criticisms waged at Mr Sunak, he has remained a top favourite in the leadership contest.

Mr Sunak faced questions over his previous handling of the economy.
Ms Truss said during Sunday night’s debate: Rishi, you have raised taxes to the highest level in 70 years. That is not going to drive economic growth.”
Ms Truss added: “You raised national insurance, even though people like me opposed it in Cabinet at the time because we could have afforded to fund the NHS through general taxation.
“The fact is that raising taxes at this moment will choke off economic growth; it will prevent us getting the revenue we need to pay off the debt.”
