PJ Dean, 76, Pentney: "I don't think any of them are any good. The way they've performed they should kick the lot out and start again. I know [North West Norfolk MP] Henry Bellingham - as a person he's brilliant. Liz Truss is probably a good person but I don't think any of the Conservatives have the courage of their convictions."

Richard Hall, 68, Thetford: "She would make a good prime minister. She's very energetic and she's very good locally so she would do a good job."

Gwen Hall, 74, Thetford: "I would not like to be prime minister. I don't think anybody could do any worse than Theresa May but I don't feel Theresa May had any backing. If I was PM I would give pensioners more money."

Rosina Briers, 79, Marham: "Liz Truss came to Marham and she did a good job helping people there. She would make a good PM."
