British Prime Minister Liz Truss has thrown in the towel. She resigned on Thursday, making her the shortest-termed Prime Minister in the history of Britain.
In her resignation speech, she said that she came in to fix the energy crises and the economy and she doesn’t think she can do it. Could anyone in her position do it by staying the course of gas sanctions, support for foreign wars, and looming power outages? If she really wanted to do it, she’d have to step outside the box and she didn’t seem to be the one to do that. Here she states what her priorities were: supporting Ukraine. It has become clear that supporting other countries’ wars is not conducive to supporting one’s own.
Truss says that she already notified the King and that electing her replacement would begin next week.
