The Times: Patel to pitch herself as the ‘only authentic Brexiteer who can win’

Priti Patel is expected to enter the Conservative leadership contest today after urging a meeting of Brexit hardliners to unite behind her.

The home secretary will pitch herself as the only “authentic” Brexiteer who can lead the party. She urged the other hardliners — Suella Braverman and Kemi Badenoch — to step aside and support her.

Patel has recently questioned the whether Britain should remain a signatory to the European Convention on Human Rights, stating that she is “not an advocate of European institutions”.
