The Loose Women panel urged King Charles III to implement a general election on Friday, following Liz Truss’ resignation as Prime Minister.
Ms Truss announced her resignation on Thursday, and now it’s being claimed she could be replaced by either Boris Johnson or Rishi Sunak in a battle for the position at Number 10.
Members of the public have been left infuriated that a general election hasn’t been called ahead of another new Conservative leader — and the Loose Women ladies shared the same reaction, as they appeared on Friday’s show.
Panellists Nadia Sawalha, Judi Love, Frankie Bridge and Charlene White discussed their thoughts as they talked about the former Prime Minister’s note that there would be a “leadership election next week” in her resignation speech.
Co-host Nadia, 57, slammed Ms Truss for her speech, calling it a “disgrace” with “no apology”, before the panel called for King Charles to get involved with forthcoming election procedures.
Judi said: “Everyone’s saying call it King Charles, call it and say ‘Let’s go for a general election!’”, as the audience clapped in agreement.
“Give us the chance to have our say!” Nadia exclaimed. She then turned to Judi, as she said that the comedian had recently spent time with Charles and suggested that, perhaps, she could put forward the idea to him.
“You could be our last hope,” Nadia said, as she informed the audience that Judi had enjoyed “hors d'oeuvres” with the King, not long ago.
“Quite the personality he has,” Judi said in response, before she impersonated Charle’s signature accent.
Charlene, 42, shared that King Charles “does hold the power to dissolve Parliament”, a power that was apparently last used by King William IV in 1834, marking the last time a monarch directly challenged a government authority elected by the public.
Charlene then put forward a vote with the audience to confirm if they agreed with the suggestion of a general election or not, and the majority raised their hands.
People online have also shared their support in Charles stepping in to organise a general election, following Ms Truss’ departure.
One person wrote on Twitter: “Time for King Charles to earn his title and privileges and dissolve this Parliament and call an election, enough.
“We need a King who will act like a King. Come on King Charles III. Put an end to the destruction of our democracy. Dissolve this parliament and call a general election,’ another wrote.”
