    Ms Truss was speaking ahead of the publication of her book - her account of her time in Number 10.

    More a pamphlet really.

    Why on earth are we still paying attention to this idiot and treating her opinions as if they are worthy of consideration?

      Because she was UK pm. It is a reminder of what kind of standards, or rather lack thereof, the office has.

      She’s doing the media rounds because her book about her 49 days as PM is released. Apparently almost everything, including causing everyone’s mortgage to sharply rise, wasn’t her fault.

    The ‘world was safer’ argument is an especially bizarre one to make this week, of all weeks, when the Middle East is ‘on the cusp’ of a wider conflict that was partly caused by Donald Trump’s unilateral withdrawal from a treaty with Iran. And Trump also inflamed tensions in that same region by moving the US’ Israeli Embassy to Jersualem. As to conflict in ‘the West’ specifically, he also endorsed and continues to endorse the very people pushing the West towards conflict, and himself caused violent conflict in the US, which was part of ‘the West’ last time I checked.

      Not just the withdrawal, but also the assassination of a Revolutionary Guards general, which Iran themselves said was why they staged October 7 as an act of revenge.

      Don’t forget about freeing the 5000+ ISIS fighters & handing Afghanistan back over to them.

        There are just so many counter examples! I honestly cannot think of a major political figure who’s made such an utterly bizarre argument.

    She’s just a footnote. At best.

      And a god tier trivia question in 20 years. Who was prime Minister when the queen died?

        That or which ‘Prime Minister was outlasted by a lettuce?’

          I just love she took the record of shortest serving prime minister from a guy who was already had the pneumonia that would kill him when he took office.

        Yeah she’s one for the pub quiz.

        About the only use she is, aside from discrediting any policy suggestions that come out of the Institute for Economic Affairs (i.e. the Tuffton Street Twats).

        Many of us pay attention to world events. And I was cheering on the Lettuce!

    Quick, someone ask the lettuce their opinion! We need an experienced post-holder as a counter point!

    FYI Mz Truss, the Head Of Lettuce endorsed Biden. And Mr Lettuce lasted longer than you. Your “best by” date has passed!

    Considering how her month long stint as PM went, I fully welcome her endorsement of Trump

      Her endorsement is meaningless because she’s a political irrelevancy with less political foresight than a tin of sardines.
