Rishi Sunak’s “hectoring, domineering” attitude towards Liz Truss in Monday nights debate ordered on bullying, Tory MP David Jones warned.
Mr Jones, deputy chairman of the European Research Group, suggested his combative approach “backfired”, and that by the end the 42-year-old realised he had made a strategic error.
He said: “I suspect that he’d been advised to tackle Liz on almost everything she said, but the problem about that, of course was that it came over as hectoring, domineering, almost bullying but not quite.
“And I think that that probably went down rather badly – it’s been suggested that he was mansplaining.”
