Liz Truss has been rocked by the resignation of two trusted ministers in less than a week. On Wednesday (October 19) in the UK Parliament, the opposition completely mocked Truss. He has to face the criticism of party members. On this day, the MPs of the ruling Tory party got involved in an unprecedented argument. The opposition also plagued the Prime Minister with questions.
Opposition Leader Sir Keir Starmer said the Prime Minister had dodged every question last week. Criticized Labour’s plan. What is the Prime Minister’s response to plans to destroy the country’s economy? Sorry! Now will we accept the economic disaster and forgive him? The economy that you dreamed of, has ended up in a tailspin situation.
Grant Shepps was sacked from the Transport Ministry by Liz Truss, who took over as Prime Minister six weeks ago. Due to the situation, he has to be brought back to the post of Home Minister. But Shapes opposed Liz Truss during the party leadership election. At the time, Finance Minister Jeremy Hunt also supported Rishi Sunak.
Basically, Truss came under pressure over economic policy and planning. Truss had to withdraw from the much-discussed and controversial ‘mini budget’ plan. In this regard, he said, I have admitted my mistake. What was necessary was a change of plan. But I did that. I have been in charge for only one and a half months. In the meantime, we have ensured the increase in insurance, stability in the price of fuel. Inflation, interest rates are high all over the world. We are trying to reconcile rather honestly. I believe in fighting, not backing down.
Liz Truss, who took over as party leader with promises of tax cuts, suffered from the start. Where the extra funding would come from was not in the Trust’s brief budget. Jeremy Hunt scrapped almost all of the Trust’s economic plan after taking over as the new Finance Minister due to tensions. Truss had to step down as prime minister and head of the Tory party after admitting that his plan was wrong.
