Andy Street – 2022 Comments on the Resignation of Liz Truss

The comments made by Andy Street, the Conservative Mayor of the West Midlands, on Twitter on 20 October 2022.

This is a complete mess, and I know people across the West Midlands feel utterly let down at a time when they face immense pressures in their daily lives.

We are all crying out for strong and consistent leadership, and I dearly hoped we’d get it.

But now the party has one last chance to pull itself together, unite behind a new leader, and deliver what it was elected to do.

People outside Westminster have no interest in personal political ambition, they just crave good leadership, help and support at this time.

So whoever is elected leader needs to work with us in the West Midlands to provide exactly that. My job, once again, will be to ensure that happens.
