Kemi Badenoch rebuked Tom Tugendhat’s criticism of Boris Johnson’s Government in an astonishing exchange at tonight’s live Conservative Party debate. Ms Badenoch said she was “not ashamed of anything we did” while she was a minister in Mr Johnson’s Government. Ms Badenoch argued that Mr Tugendhat has not been on the frontline in policy decisions. 

She hit out at her rival candidate’s criticism, saying: “We have a lot to be proud of.

“We got Brexit done, and what the Prime Minister did on Ukraine and on vaccines was fantastic.

“Serving in Government is not easy. It requires taking difficult decisions.

“Tom has never done that. It’s very easy for him to criticise what we’ve been doing when he has not been in Government.”
