'The game is up’: First Tory MP publicly calls for Liz Truss …
Liz Truss is facing pressure to 0121 do one.
Four of her own MPs have broken ranks to say they aren't best pleased with her record so far as PM and what with all her u-turns, chancellor changes, impact on opinion polls and impact on the economy, things aren't looking good for her.
So while Truss will have one eye on what to do to save herself as PM, she may have another eye on jobs websites, to consider what she might do next.
Don't say we don't ever indulge in a spot of client journalism and help our dear leaders out - we've had a think about what she could get up to for her.
\u201cHow ironic!!! It turns out that Liz Truss\u2019s \u2018pork market speech\u2019 was the apogee of her political career & the full measure of all she had in her \u2018talent locker\u2019\u2026\n\n\u201cWe import two thirds of our cheese. That. Is. A. Disgrace.\u201d\n\n#speechwriter\u201d
She supported the Lib Dems in the past and has shown her political flip-flopping was not just a phase in her youth (just look at how many u-turns she's done already as PM).
So why not flip-flop once more and return to her pro-European roots and rejoin the party? We're not sure Ed Davey would give way to her but it is worth a try.
\u201cIf committed Lib Dem Liz Truss had decided in her twenties to infiltrate the Conservative Party in order to become leader & screw it up from the inside, how exactly would she have behaved differently over the last month?\u201d
In fact, scratch that and put her in the Labour party instead. After all, she seems to go where the political tide goes, now backing Brexit after campaigning for Remain, and she's done a lot for Labour, if recent polls are anything to go by which show them soaring ahead.
Indeed, while PM she has been more of an asset to Keir Starmer's party than her own.
As a pragmatist, we're sure he'd accept what a trooper she's been for the left and anoint her as the new leader.
\u201cNEW: Opinium MRP poll projects 1997-style landslide for Labour, winning 411 seats.\n\nTories would lose 219 seats to end up on 137, LDs on 39 & SNP on 37.\n\n10 cabinet mins incl Jeremy Hunt, Jacob Rees Mogg wld lose seats at election plus Boris Johnson.\n\nhttps://t.co/UVLE49Td7M\u201d
On the flip side, she's also destroyed everything she's tried to help - her party, the pound, the economy in general, her reputation... She really does have some sort of reverse Midas touch and since she seems to like wrecking everything she'd make an excellent demolition worker.
\u201cLiz Truss has been PM for 28 days. Has she ever taken that hard hat off? \ud83d\ude02 #LizTruss\u201d
You know where we are going with this one. The lady IS for turning. She's done so many u-turns, the nation is reeling from a collective whiplash and at least in that sense we've never been more united.
So we reckon she could teach prospective drivers a thing or two about how to change course when you realise you are driving in the wrong direction.
\u201cHunt goes much further than just a u-turn. Scraps the income tax cut indefinitely and ditches Truss's two-year energy plan. A PM whose entire agenda in office has been junked\u201d
She's been spotted living it up in clubs during Tory party conferences in the past and is known to let her hair down.
We can think of people we'd rather go clubbing with but we're sure she could get a crowd of Tories together to sink some shots with (after sinking the economy first).
