Who’s Liz Truss, Britain’s new prime minister?
Truss, 47, has held senior posts underneath three prime ministers, together with her most up-to-date stint as overseas secretary. But many Britons confess they don’t actually know Truss, not the way in which they knew Boris Johnson — former London mayor, newspaper columnist, colourful orator, serial prevaricator — when he took workplace only a few years in the past.
It’s truthful to say she is a shapeshifter. She is an ex-Remainer, ex-Liberal Democrat, ex-anti-monarchist. Her political journey might have begun on the left — Down with the monarchy! she cried — however she arrived on the suitable, a hard-line Brexiteer who has tried to channel the Iron Woman herself, Margaret Thatcher.
