Liz Truss Faces Backlash Over Leaked Audio
Although Liz Truss, the Tory leadership frontrunner has received backing from 11 government whips over competitor Rishi Sunak, a leaked audio of her indicating British workers needed "more graft" and lacked "skill and application" may hamper her prospects.
The comments were made when she was the chief secretary to the Treasury which she held until 2019.
The leaked video has reinvigorated a passage from the book Britannia Unchained that she co-authored in 2012.
The passage claimed British workers were the worst idlers in the world, a chapter Truss attributes to fellow author Dominic Raab to have written.
She also claimed that Raab is now backing Sunak.
Labour has called Truss's comments offensive as they brand British workers lazy.
