Liz Truss Resigns As UK Prime Minister

spot_img

British Prime Minister Liz Truss has announced she will stand down as leader of the Conservative Party after her policies triggered economic turmoil and sharply divided the party.

Speaking outside her Downing Street office on Thursday, Truss said she could not deliver the promises she made when she was running for Conservative leader, having lost the faith of her party.
“I cannot deliver the mandate on which I was elected by the Conservative Party. I have therefore spoken to His Majesty the King to notify him that I am resigning as leader of the Conservative Party,” she said in a hastily arranged statement.

Truss, who has been prime minister for just 45 days, said she will remain as prime minister and party leader until a successor is chosen.

The leadership contest should be concluded by October 28, Graham Brady, the chair of the Conservative Party’s 1922 Committee said.

The opposition Labour party called for an immediate general election.
“The Tories cannot respond to their latest shambles by yet again simply clicking their fingers and shuffling the people at the top without the consent of the British people. We need a general election – now,” opposition leader Sir Keir Starmer said in a statement.

The Conservative Party “has shown it no longer has a mandate to govern,” he added. “After 12 years of Tory failure, the British people deserve so much better than this revolving door of chaos.”

Chaos in Parliament

On Wednesday, Truss had pledged to stay in power, saying she was “a fighter and not a quitter”. But she could not hold on after a senior minister quit her government with a barrage of criticism and a vote in the House of Commons descended into chaos and acrimony just days after she was forced to abandon many of her economic policies.

A growing number of lawmakers had called for Truss to resign after weeks of turmoil sparked by her economic plan.

  1. @Prober: You forgot to put the word ‘mentally’ before the word ‘frail’. One would have thought that George W. Bush was the last of his kind ever to swagger across the world stage, but the Brits were not going to be upstaged by their former colony; hence Liz!

    Talk is that Bojo the Clown might provide an encore performance!

  2. Wretch !! I wish your Hitler Queen could have suffer the same faith as you………she got off easy for her crimes against The Black Race, nothing would give the UTMOST JOY just to piss on her grave……..I would give up my life savings to enjoy such a moment, I would drink a 100 cases Pitons before I go, yeah I am there for more than a minute.

  3. Now that the laughter has died down at Truss’ demise, we can examine reality in the UK, which the clown show produced by the Deep State in the US sought to hide from public view (the UK is a puppet state of the US; after all, poodles do have some involuntary bodily functions).
