The Observer view on the Conservatives: Rishi Sunak has no purpose: it’s time to call an election | Observer editorial

Another week, another crisis in the Conservative party. This time, it was prompted by the resignation of the immigration minister, Robert Jenrick, who claimed that Rishi Sunak’s emergency legislation to enact his plan to fly asylum seekers to Rwanda was a “triumph of hope over experience”. Rival Tory factions reportedly spent the rest of the week plotting opposing amendments to the bill for when it is introduced to the Commons on Tuesday. It is the latest manifestation of the weakness of a government riven by internal division, led by a prime minister with no strategic purpose save holding his party and his premiership together.
