Just appeared on @BBCWales Sunday Supplement to explain to @markhutchings1 why I believe @trussliz should be the next Prime Minister.

Beautiful day for the Llanrhaeadr show, the first since 2019. So pleased that the summer shows are back in operation. And more in attendance today than I’ve seen for many years.
Liz Truss has been backed by Telegraph readers as Britain’s next prime minister in the largest campaign poll to date.

Wonderful evening on the #NorthWales Riviera
🗳️ @Conservatives members: As ballots land this week, I'm counting on your vote.
I'm trusted to deliver for our great country, to unite our Party and to win the next election.
Join the team: https://lizforleader.co.uk
It's time to unite.
21 current and former colleagues who have sat around the Cabinet table have come together to back Liz.
She will unite our Party, beat Keir Starmer, and is trusted to deliver for Britain 👇
Very pleased to join @CeredigionCons on Zoom this evening to talk about @Conservatives leadership contest and why I think @trussliz is the right choice.
With @JoelTory and @LauraJ4SWEast at last night’s Cardiff leadership hustings.
Pleased to have voted for @trussliz as Leader of the @Conservatives.
Powerful article by @PaulGoodmanCH https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/tory-leadership-race-rishi-sunak-is-paying-the-price-for-a-lack-of-political-creativity-fv8phgr0r
Proud to support @trussliz at tonight’s hustings in Cardiff. Ardderchog!

Liz Truss wins backing of former Tory leadership rival Penny Mordaunt
We will be encouraging @Conservatives Members to vote @trussliz as the new leader.
She is best to deliver growth ⬆️, trade agreements 🤝and a prosperous future💰

The trouble with Sunak’s new tax promise https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/the-trouble-with-sunak-s-new-tax-promise via @spectator
Don’t think it will be lost on @Conservatives members that the tax cut “pledge” comes at the beginning of the week when ballot papers drop through their letterboxes. They tend to notice that sort of thing. Who the heck is advising Rishi? #Liz4Leader
Tax cuts in seven years? It’d be welcome, certainly. I’d like to believe it. But it’d be the triumph of hope over experience. #Liz4Leader
And now it’s the turn of another Lioness…
Huge congratulations to the @Lionesses!
@Keir_Starmer If you want a taste of Labour rule look to Wales.
One fifth of the population on NHS waiting lists.
And the senedd are implementing 20mph speed limits in towns and trialling UBI on 18 year olds.
Left liberal orthodoxy has held us back since 2016. Now Ms Truss can unleash our potential. https://twitter.com/trussliz/status/1553046589714866177
The number one problem in this country is a lack of economic growth. Our immediate focus has to be on unleashing our potential and driving the growth we need.
What a huge amount of pain and misery Putin has to answer for.
Sometimes I can't sleep trying to fit into my head the tectonic changes of the last five months. Enough events for a lifetime. Millions of lives, including mine, upended forever. It still feels unreal; the sheer scale of it is difficult to grasp
.@trussliz absolutely right to seek to prioritise trade deals with #Commonwealth nations, to counteract China’s predatory Belt and Road activities. The Commonwealth is one of the most effective and important forces for good in the world.
From a constituent: “Welsh lamb is down 70p a kg in 3 weeks, so a 40 kg lamb is down £28, but @asda is selling New Zealand; what is going on?” @asda, what are you doing to promote domestic lamb?
Delighted that my very good friend Janet has declared her support for @trussliz
I am delighted to announce my support for the Rt. Hon. Liz Truss MP to become the next Leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister of our great country.
I am confident that Liz Truss will deliver for the people of Aberconwy, Wales and the United Kingdom. #LizForLeader
Team Rishi should explain how the proposed temporary cut on VAT on fuel could apply in Northern Ireland before the NI Protocol Bill is enacted. It was, after all, the NI issue that prevented him cutting it at the last Budget.
Rumour Team Rishi will soon be announcing commitment to tax cuts. Risky strategy, since it will serve only to confirm @trussliz got it right all along.
Delighted my good friend @LauraJ4SWEast is also supporting #LizForLeader. Well done, Laura!
Putin’s academic thesis noted the strategic importance of Russian control of natural resources.
Putin switched back on Nord Stream 1. But only at 40% capacity. As of tomorrow he cuts that to 20%. His aim is to stop the EU — above all Germany — from filling up storage capacity for winter. See my column in last Saturday’s Daily Mail to understand what’s going on.
The next @Conservatives leader must commit to improving transport infrastructure across the North, including North Wales, to improve the synergy between our Freeports and Enterprise Zones. And, by the way, the Welsh Freeport should be in Holyhead.
Liz Truss has done herself no harm at all this evening. Rishi needs to find himself a new advisory team.
Whoever is advising Rishi is doing him no service. Shouting down his female opponent - who is quietly impressive - isn’t a good look.
David Trimble was a remarkable man. Gentle, unassuming, thoughtful. I met him a number of times and was always struck that such an internationally important figure could be so very normal.
Excellent, from @LiamHalligan (£): Treasury groupthink has damaged Britain for decades https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2022/07/24/treasury-groupthink-has-damaged-britain-decades/
Despicable breach of trust by Russia underlines the futility of negotiation. Russia has to be defeated. You can’t negotiate with a crocodile when your head is in its mouth. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-62276392
Pleasing result for @trussliz. Interesting summer ahead!
A number of Conservative colleagues recounting to the Deputy Speaker appalling threats made by Labour activists against them and their families, including very young children. This behaviour is utterly unacceptable. Keir Starmer must surely be keen to take action.
UK charities call for immediate end to closure of Gaza after 15 years of collective punishment and imposed fragmentation.
See statement from 16 organisations inc @Caabu calling for an end to the severe closure regime and blockade on Palestinians in Gaza.
Good result for @trussliz who is now in the final three. Very much hoping she will be one of the two candidates who will be put to the wider party. She has every prospect of being leader by early September.
Truss has best thought out plan for the economy, says Patrick Minford https://www.express.co.uk/comment/expresscomment/1642725/Liz-Truss-economic-plan-best-for-country-Patrick-Minford-comment
While hugely respecting the other candidates, I am supporting @trussliz to be leader of the @Conservatives. She has a record of delivery and will be a fine PM.
Just catching up with the #Truss campaign...
The proposal to put Covid #debt on a 'longer-term footing' needs fleshing out, but the jump in borrowing due to Covid is a one-off, and it is surely right that the cost should be spread over future generations (similar to war debt)...
