(ANSA) – LONDON, AUGUST 03 – The voting procedures within the conservative party, which must choose the successor of the outgoing British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, have been slowed down for security reasons, following fears of hacker attacks advanced by the Gchq, the UK intelligence agency responsible for cyber espionage and counterespionage. This was revealed today on the front page by the pro-Tory Daily Telegraph newspaper, according to which the alert caused only the delay in sending the ballots to the members of the majority party who must decide through the postal vote their new leader and the next first minister.

The times set for the epilogue of the two-player match between Foreign Minister Liz Truss and former Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak, which remains set for 5 September, do not change.

Epilogue that seems to have already been decided, at least according to the poll published by the Times: Truss still rises, winning 60% of the consensus among members, at least before yesterday’s embarrassing reverse on the idea of ​​lowering the salaries of public employees living outside London . The minister’s advantage over her rival Sunak is based on a substantial continuity with what Johnson did (whose most extremist praetorians support Truss with a sword from the beginning), on the hard line in foreign policy and above all on the revival to the right in fiscal policy. with promises of tax cuts extended even to the recently introduced one on junk food.
