Barely 45 days had gone by before the previous Prime Minister Liz Truss had decided to step down as the British Prime Minister on 25 October 2022, marking her as the shortest serving PM voted into Parliament since its establishment 300 years ago. When she was sworn in as PM the world had believed that she would be the change that England need to work alongside the late Queen, However, that dream was short lived when she was called yet again to swear allegiance to His Royal Majesty King Charles III.
She promised to lower the cost of living in England, provide employment, create budget plans to benefit the government. This is what led to her downfall.
From day one PM Liz Truss was despised by many members of parliament because she wanted to pin the government against the monarchy likely because her main budget cut she wanted to purse would decrease the cost of living in England only by decreasing the cost of maintaining the royal family as head of state.
She then did a poor job of keeping the royal family from creating bad press for England as evident in the scandal between Prince Harry and Megan Markle with Prince William and Princess Kate that led to allegedly the death of the late Queen.
When Liz Truss resigned, she said to the Guardian, “We simply cannot afford to be a low growth country where the government takes up an incredible increasing share of our national wealth”. People found it rather odd she says this when she, herself had misused her power which has to such an extent that it led to a divide in the country.
She then went on further to say, “We need to restore power to the democratic institution, it means low taxes so people can keep more of their money that they earn which means delivering growth that will lead to more job security, higher wages and greater opportunities”.Arguably, the main issue with her statement is that simply lowering the taxes will strain the country heavily since the United Kingdom was built on the back of those who paid taxes to the monarchy.
In the days leading up to her resignation BBC news published that she had the lowest public approval rating, her former Home Secretary Suella Braveman MP sent a resignation letter stating “pretending we haven’t made mistakes, carrying on as if everyone can’t see that we have made them, and hoping that things will magically come right is not serious politics.”
Not only that Chancellor man Jeremy Hunt public declared that income tax will remain at 20% and other reforms installed by former PM Liz Truss to be removed but the damage was already severe due to these reforms being loaned from the bank has led to country to financial debt.
