PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! After taking part in numerous television debates and hustings, Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss could have been forgiven for seeing the Sky News head-to-head as just a run of the mill event. Instead, it proved to be the toughest outing for the two candidates to date. The mix of audience questions – who were allowed to come back with follow-ups – combined with Kay Burley’s forensic questioning meant neither candidate had an easy ride. But given Truss is the clear frontrunner, she had the most to lose.The Foreign Secretary was pressed on the wisdom of her economic plans. The audience – made up of undecided Tory members – expressed concern over whether her sums added up and what it would mean for their children and grandchildren. It suggests that the tactics from the Sunak camp of the risk to mortgage rates if Truss enters No. 10 (complete with a new gimmicky website allowing voters to check what her plans could mean for monthly payments) is yielding results.She also risks looking overly stubborn and defensive over her refusal to get into the details of her policy U-turn this week where she ditched plans to bring in regional pay boards for civil servants and public sectors following a backlash.As for Rishi Sunak, he faced allegations of betrayal of Boris Johnson with an audience member accusing him of stabbing Johnson in the back.

. However, the audience member who asked the question looked unconvinced.Ultimately the snap poll of audience members pointed to the victor of the session. A majority of those assembled raised their hand to say that Sunak had won them round over Truss. Now, given Truss is so far ahead in the polls, this may not be so significant. He still has a mountain to climb. What’s more, the Truss camp believe a lot of voters have already made up their minds in her favour and will vote quickly when the ballots drop this week.But there is still much to celebrate in the Sunak camp. They are desperately in need of a gamechanger moment to show that the race is not over – despite Truss’s apparent poll lead. Tonight’s performance won’t do that in of itself – but it does go some way to backing up the argument from supporters of Sunak that the race could be closer than first thought.
