A Red Wall Tory who was excited about Boris Johnson has a good feeling about Liz Truss, she has confirmed.
Mary Fisher from Hartlepool, who thinks Johnson got Brexit done masterfully and that he made all the right calls during the pandemic, has a gut feeling that Liz Truss will do an even better job.
Fisher said: “Liz has only been in power for two minutes and she’s already showing signs of solving this cost-of-living crisis easily with her vague, costly plan. So I reckon we can rest easy that everything will be smooth sailing from here on out.
“I’m not superstitious, but I feel it in my waters that Liz Truss will go down in history as the best prime minister we’ve ever had. Years from now aspiring prime ministers will mimic her awkward speeches and head-girl-out-of-her-depth attitude in an effort to further their own careers.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if Russian tanks start reversing out of Ukraine after she gives Putin a stern telling off, and I bet she’s got a solution to the climate crisis tucked away for when she needs a boost in the polls. Not that she’ll ever be unpopular.”
Friend Carolyn Ryan said: “Mary would put money on her convictions if she could but her job was scrapped as part of levelling up.”
