Conservative Party seems to be forming an opinion about Rishi Sunak.

Even the ruling Conservative Party seems to be forming an opinion about Rishi Sunak.
Johnson is also a better option

Ben Wallace’s claim too strong

It is known that Liz Truss was the Prime Minister of Britain for only 45 days. If we look at history, we find that this is the shortest tenure of any British Prime Minister.
