In breaking news, former Mordaunt supporter Mrs Elphicke is backing the MP for South West Norfolk to become PM because "Having assessed both candidates and their plans, I believe that Liz Truss offers the most credible plan to stop damaging illegal immigration, and can be trusted to deliver on her promises."
Mrs E concludes: "This is not just robust talk, but a robust plan for tackling the small boats crisis. And it is Conservative to its very core. A nation is defined, at least in part, by its borders.
As Conservatives, we believe passionately in the good that sovereign nation states, who have autonomy over their borders, can do. This was a key motivation for Brexit, and the best way for us to play our role in the world. It is also compassionately Conservative."
What's not to like? And, bonus, Mrs Truss would appoint a dedicated government Minister to have oversight of Britain’s Border Force. (Just sorry I missed the Elphickes in 2016 with their 'Do Good - Vote Leave' placard.)
