'You've never had a job in Government!' Tugendhat confronted on bid to become PM


Tom Tugendhat was the first Tory MP to enter the race to replace Boris Johnson, following his resignation on Thursday. However, the MP’s lack of cabinet experience has raised questions. Sky News’ Sophy Ridge opened her interview with the MP by bluntly saying: “You are hoping to replace Boris Johnson but you’ve never served a role in Government.”

He cited his record in the military “fighting for my country” as well as his record in standing up to Russia and China.

He insisted he does have the relevant experience to run as PM as he has strong leadership skills and the role is about “leading teams”.

Mr Tugendhat set out his bid to become Prime Minister by repeatedly saying it was the time for a “clean start”.

The former soldier says his “entire career has been about serving the country” and “this was about setting about a vision”.
