Kemi Badenoch becomes first Tory to be promised a top job in Liz Truss’ team if she becomes PM


KEMI Badenoch will get a top job if Liz Truss becomes Prime Minister, the leadership frontrunner vowed today.

The former candidate, who proved hugely popular with grassroots members, is the first Tory to be promised a job in Ms Truss‘ government.

The Foreign Secretary said: “I think she’s absolutely brilliant and I would definitely want her as part of my team if I am successful.”

Ms Badenoch will likely bag a Cabinet role, with her tipped for either Education or Culture Secretary. 

She finished fourth in the Tory leadership race after mounting a stunning outsider bid on an anti-woke platform that saw her humiliate big beast rivals.

However Ms Badenoch has kept tight-lipped about who she is now backing despite both camps trying to court her coveted endorsement.

Ms Truss heaped praise on the former Equalities Minister for the work she did safeguarding women’s rights.

She did not reveal any more appointments but insisted she would harvest all the talent on the Tory benches if she wins.

Ms Truss said: “I don’t want to get ahead of myself, and this leadership campaign is still going on.

“But I can tell you that I will make sure the best players in the Conservative Party on the pitch leader.”

Naming the qualities she will look for in Cabinet Ministers, she said people who are “competent”, are prepared to “stand up to Whitehall”, and “people who are loyal, and don’t spend their time briefing the press.”

Speaking at a GB News town hall meeting, the wannabe PM also committed to a more “lean” No10 operation.

She said the current team in Boris Johnson’s Downing Street was “a bit too presidential” and she “doesn’t believe in micromanagement”.
