Tory Party in Crisis: Infighting, Suspensions, and Allegations Threaten Rishi Sunak's Leadership Ahead of Local Elections

The Conservative Party is facing internal turmoil and fears a potential meltdown ahead of May's local elections.
The past week has been marked by infighting, suspensions, and bizarre allegations.

Despite Prime Minister Rishi Sunak's attempt to restore the party's reputation with a speech on welfare reform, MPs were soon discussing a strange incident involving a colleague allegedly getting a dog drunk.

This incident, along with the ongoing infighting, has raised concerns about the party's ability to perform well in the upcoming elections and even led to rumors of a possible leadership challenge against Sunak.

A senior minister expressed concern over the "bizarre" and "mad" behavior of Tory MP Mark Menzies, who is currently suspended from the party.

Menzies denies accusations of being drunk in public and asking for money at 3:15 am.

Meanwhile, former prime minister Liz Truss criticized "leftists in the Conservative party" while promoting her new book, and Boris Johnson criticized Rishi Sunak's lack of enthusiasm for Brexit.

These incidents have raised questions about Tory discipline, which was once seen as a party strength.

The text suggests that despite the upcoming local elections, which could potentially be risky, the Italian government is pushing forward with its economic reforms.

These reforms include pension and labor market changes, as well as a decree to streamline bureaucracy.

The government is confident in their approach, but there is a risk that these reforms could negatively impact public opinion and potentially lead to electoral losses.
