I find Liz Truss to be a bit wooden.. She doesn't do speeches very well.. Her praise of Boris went down like a lead balloon.  and the pause between end of speech and  applause was embarrassing.. 
Yet her walk is brilliant.. such confidence..
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

Well of course it played out like that, the MPs who went to such lengths to get rid of Boris were never going to cheer enthusiastically.

However, that doesn't detract from the fact she spoke the truth about his achievements.

Bad points

Pro immigration - ignoring the illegals there are about a million legals each year with maybe 1/3 million leaving.
Fanatical on Net Zero
Inability to tell the truth

Probably still the best of a terrible bunch though with an even worse bunch waiting in the wings for the next election.

We are in for a rough ride.

At a time when Lizz Truss should be already sat at her desk in Number 10, we are being treated to the utterly ridiculous farce of her having to waste a complete day travelling to Balmoral to be appointed by Lizzie Windsor.

Time this stupid practice was stopped.

The party took 2 months to elect her so I doubt a day will make much difference but I agree the rigmarole is a bit farcicle.

Sunak should have stepped down at least a month ago as he never stood a chance of winning.

I read that Truss is likely to put a £2,000 cap on energy prices, the cost of which could take 20 years to be recovered by taxation or higher energy bills when the wholesale gas price drops back down.

I want to pay whatever our energy bill is at any point in time & not be paying towards other people's energy bills for 20 years.

It was closer than I expected. He must have had more relatives than I thought  :grin:

I wonder if he is still smiling...

Lol. I was going to say that he miscalculated the number of new overseas Tory Party members that he needed to buy.  :grin:
