There must now be an election, says UNISON

Conservatives unfit to govern

Commenting on the resignation of the prime minister Liz Truss, UNISON general secretary Christina McAnea said: “This farce cannot go on. The Conservatives have shown themselves unfit to govern.

“The crisis affecting the country is so deep that the only solution is to have an election. There should be one immediately so voters can choose a government to get the country back on its feet.”
