Truss’s honours list – a “stunning lack of humility”?

Lunatic: remember when Liz Truss modelled herself on a fictional fascist dictator?

Liz Truss is the gift to satirists that keeps on giving.

Her latest insanity is her resignation honours list, which makes what can best be described as bizarre choices, and at worst is, well…

She wants to ennoble four people, meaning she wants to create a peer for every 10 days she was in office. This is considered by some to be an astonishing lack of humility.

The list allegedly includes Mark Littlewood, the director general of the Institute of Economic Affairs, who lavished praise on her disastrous budget; Matthew Elliott, the former Vote Leave chief executive who helped found the TaxPayers’ Alliance, which campaigns for lower taxes; Ruth Porter, her former deputy chief of staff; and Jon Moynihan, a Conservative donor and businessman who gave £50,000 in two separate donations to Truss’s Tory leadership campaign.
