Liz Truss: extreme neoliberal, anti-Labour, anti-environmentalist – and populist

New Tory prime minister Liz Truss is nothing more than a piece of theatre, according to Guardian columnist George Monbiot in this Democracy Now! interview.

He says her every utterance is carefully rehearsed in order to say only what she thinks is popular – and the same goes for her policies; she adopts whatever policy she thinks will find favour with the audience she’s with.

The audience she has been with over the summer has been the Conservative Party membership – a grossly unrepresentative and tiny group of UK people.

In pandering to these people, she has supported extreme neoliberal policies – tax cuts for the rich, more austerity, more privatisation if possible, and all when the exact opposite is needed.


Her second week in power is about to begin.

Feel free to check Mr Monbiot’s predictions against what Truss does.

    I’ve said it before – carefully scripted.
    The fact that LAME Liz (Look At Me Everybody) has broken protocol by touring with King Charles to raise her profile shows how she believes Politics can interfere with Royalty but never the other way round, sheer manipulation.
