Liz Truss to ‘share lessons’ of her time as PM in new book |  The Guardian

Remember when Liz Truss gave a speech, wearing the same costume as a fictional fascist leader played by Emma Thompson on TV? It seems Truss would have labelled Ms Thompson’s character a ‘Conservative’, and anybody who opposed her a member of the ‘global left’. Draw your own conclusions!

Someone’s having a giggle, one would suggest.

Here’s The Guardian:

Liz Truss is writing a book about her 49 days as prime minister, which will argue the main cause of her downfall was a lack of “support for Conservative ideas” – and too much support for the “global left”.

Does anybody remember an abundance of support for any “global left” at all, or a lack of it for “Conservative ideas”? Perhaps it depends on what Truss considers “Conservative ideas”. Those of Genghis Khan, perhaps?

The former prime minister wants to see a “Conservative movement revival” and has decided to “share the lessons” from her time in government, where she was “often the only conservative in the room”.

“The only Conservative in the room”? One would suggest that the other people in that hypothetical room were the actual Conservatives – or rather, neoliberals. As for Truss – maybe a little to the right of Genghis Khan?

The book, Ten Years to Save the West, is being touted as warning against authoritarianism and the threat from “fashionable ideas propagated by the global left” – the same movement she blames for derailing her premiership.

A warning against authoritarianism? From Truss?

A “global left” that she blames for derailing her premiership?

This woman appears to be out of her mind.

Well, she was a co-author of Britannia Unchained, and look at the entertainment value that provided!

Perhaps this new effort should be sold from the ‘humour’ sections of bookshops.

EXTRA: People have already been hugely festive with a book about Truss’s time as PM that was written by somebody else, so there’s no reason to be lenient on one written by Loony Liz herself:

Apparently Truss’s own book is to be published next April by Biteback Publishing, which is owned by Michael Ashcroft and has published his biography of David Cameron, Call Me Dave, and Dave Rich’s screed about left-wing anti-Semitism, The Left’s Jewish Problem. Draw your own conclusions from that!

In America, the book will be published by Regnery, described as a “medium-sized, loosely linked network of conservative types, with few degrees of separation and similar political aims. Just don’t call it a conspiracy”.

(Notice she’s wearing her ‘fascist leader’ suit in the publicity photograph, again.)

Perhaps the best comment on the book is its title. Ten Years to Save the West? About Truss’s 49 days leading the UK?

Someone’s having a larf.
