Chris Grayling urges Tories to elect senior Eurosceptic to lead the party through Brexit


THE TORY party must appoint a senior Tory Eurosceptic to lead it through Brexit, Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said last night.

And he added a full-scale leadership contest should be delayed until 2022.

Mr Grayling said it was “more likely than not the next leader will be someone who campaigned for Brexit”.

He told the Daily Telegraph: “We are planning two things rather than one.

“Planning somebody who has got the experience and resilience to get us through the immediate future.

“Then we have got a really good generation of younger politicians in their 40s who can make a real impact, who are going to be the future leadership of the party in the future.”
