Senior UK lawmaker calls for change of PM or face election ‘massacre’

LONDON: Senior British Conservative lawmaker Simon Clarke called on Tuesday for a change of prime minister, saying Rishi Sunak was leading the governing party into an election later this year “where we will be massacred.”

Since Sunak pushed through his Rwanda immigration plan last week, ignoring the demands of several in his party’s right wing to toughen it, some have been increasingly vocal in their criticism of the British leader, fearing he has little chance of reducing the opposition Labour Party’s lead before the election.
