Liz Truss is Britain's shortest-serving Prime Minister in history. The reason for this should not be their screwed up tax policy. According to the Tory politician, she was badly played with.
Former British Prime Minister Liz Truss has spoken out for the first time since her fall in October. In an essay in the Sunday Telegraph, she blamed "a very powerful economic establishment and a lack of political support" for her failure. "When I walked into Downing Street I assumed my mandate would be respected and accepted. How wrong I was. While I expected the system to resist my programme, I underestimated the magnitude," he said truss
She also underestimated the resistance within the conservative parliamentary group against lower taxation and a less regulated economy, she told the newspaper. The uproar over the reduction in the top tax rate was evidence of this. Almost all of her plans for radical tax cuts, which she wanted to boost economic growth but triggered a financial crisis, have now been largely reversed. "I wanted to be prime minister to make a difference, not to manage decline or watch our country slide into stagnation," Truss said.
Truss also spoke favorably of her predecessor, Boris Johnson. This is now said to have ambitions to return to the top of the government. She did not mention her successor Rishi Sunak by name, but let it be known that she was critical of his tax policy, which was aimed at consolidating the budget.
However, her work as Prime Minister remains historical and not very creditable. Truss went down as the shortest-serving Prime Minister in Britain's history. A development that was initiated by the British press. The newspaper "Daily Star" had started a video live stream six days before her resignation, in which a head of lettuce with a wig and googly eyes could be seen disguised. The aim of the action: to see if Truss would stay in office longer than the ten or so days that a head of lettuce remains edible - in the end the head of lettuce won.
