Tory leadership: 'The policy I put forward was misrepresented' – Liz Truss

by News Update

Liz Truss says she was “decisive” by cancelling her proposed policy which would have seen public sector workers paid less depending on where they lived and worked.

The latest poll puts Ms Truss well ahead of Rishi Sunak when it comes to support from party members whose votes will decide the contest.

The pair join Kay Burley at 8pm this Thursday on Sky News as they compete to become the UK’s Prime Minister.

Best person to carry forward the legacy of Boris Johnson. Brexit is a success and she's the brightest amongst all British citizens to deliver the will of the British people.

Such a liar 🤣🤣

Alison Dawson August 3, 2022 - 9:45 PM

Jesus what has this country become when this is the best the Tory's can come up with, she's thick as mince and a liar to boot.

MAC August 3, 2022 - 9:46 PM

If she gets in the entire country will be miss represented.

MrACOUSTICPETE August 3, 2022 - 9:46 PM

" LIAR ,LIAR , LIAR ,LIAR ! "

Mr Geoffrey Spatchcock August 3, 2022 - 9:47 PM

No, it wasn't. It's just another example of Truss changing her opinion because the Tory voters didn't like what she originally said. The woman is a JOKE with zero integrity.

MAC August 3, 2022 - 9:47 PM

Small polices that will change nothing for Jo public. Just a bland sheep like the rest maintaining the status quo for the rich. In addition it has been difficult to get a dentist for at least the last 6 years where I live. Tories have had 6 years to change that and done nothing.

Caught out …. self serving liars … both of them … 🤔 starmer too

Anuruththan Amirthalingam August 3, 2022 - 9:49 PM

She is a disaster. She is not trustworthy

rose rose August 3, 2022 - 9:50 PM

Mrs Truss-Johnson 👍

Anuruththan Amirthalingam August 3, 2022 - 9:51 PM

She is pushing UK into another Sri Lanka. Populist Rajapakshe dynasty did same. She is going get loans and loans and going to push UK into debt trap 😡

Paul Irwin August 3, 2022 - 9:51 PM

The same Nutty Truss who previously claimed that 75% of cheese is imported into Britain as being an outrage. Nothing this looney tune bedwetter with a steamy nightshirt.
Someone remind her the British electorate were assured by her Tory chums that the NHS is safe in Tory hands – NO it wasn’t and NO it isn’t.
13 years of Tories in power and the NHS is almost destroyed by tory ineptness, mismanagement and tory incompetence.
Time these shyster were removed.
The Tories should all be in Prison,
Not in power!

JahRam August 3, 2022 - 9:51 PM

Are we forgetting this is the same person who encouraged British civilians to take up arms in Ukraine?

Hai Domo August 3, 2022 - 9:52 PM

Truss has openly called Putin a war criminal and for regime change in Russia. I didn't see the UK de-escalate but instead pushing the activation of Russia's nuclear deterrent force.

Collette Post August 3, 2022 - 9:53 PM

Oh Oh Russian?

Thomas Morin August 3, 2022 - 9:53 PM

She'll make a great PM. Lies without blinking an eyelid.

Hai Domo August 3, 2022 - 9:55 PM

shadow banning comments helps her campaign?

Nobody August 3, 2022 - 9:56 PM

There's no-way in hell the Tories will elect ' It ain't half hot mum ' as there leader and PM. And now, we've got another blonde tory buffoon. Can it get any worse?😞

RS40 August 3, 2022 - 9:56 PM

Oh Liz , not got the job yet but already practising lying.

Backing Welsh farmers by selling them out, according to the NFU, to Australia in her trade deal

Elizabeth pointing August 3, 2022 - 10:00 PM

She is very quick at penalizing others and never look at where she failed. Accepting what Boris was upto

Terence Field August 3, 2022 - 10:01 PM

lol Tee hee – An obviously collapsing country is about to be run by either a marginal flake of an immigrant who seems entirely remote from the realities and needs of the ancient battered old place.

akhtar zaman August 3, 2022 - 10:01 PM

Oh here we go again and again and again bit like a snake shedding its skin, still a snake. 🙄

Pee Jay August 3, 2022 - 10:01 PM

The NHS was crap long before Covid hit

Terry Rowe August 3, 2022 - 10:04 PM

Absolute Vegetable 🤪😡🤡

Donald Mckechnie August 3, 2022 - 10:05 PM

The Tories haven't delivered for the UK.

Donald Mckechnie August 3, 2022 - 10:07 PM

If the Tories are not kicked out soon, I can see me emigrating to Pakistan.

Eileen Moroney August 3, 2022 - 10:10 PM

She is panicking.

Ragnarok August 3, 2022 - 10:13 PM

misrepresented but cancelled anyway… DoubleThink in action

Roger Nichols August 3, 2022 - 10:15 PM

First she announces a policy and then withdraws it in 24 hours(Incompetent). Then she denies saying what she said. (Liar) Then she tries to blame everyone else. (Coward) And this is what the Tories think is PM material? What has happened to our politics when this self-serving numpty can rise through the political ranks to reach this position?

dubster August 3, 2022 - 10:17 PM

The fact that she is the favourite to win seriously baffles me.

Jeremy Smith August 3, 2022 - 10:20 PM

Coffin dodgers have elected a mind bendingly stupid compulsive liar,again 🙄

Helen Wangui Muturi August 3, 2022 - 10:21 PM

This woman is clearly a liar. She's been learning from the best. Boris Johnson. Once they are caught lying they change the subject and address something totally different

Amfear Liathmor August 3, 2022 - 10:21 PM

I purchased a Wool Jumper for £19 yesterday.
It will help to not freeze to death this winter.
The additional £8000 due to inflation this year (food, transport, electricity, gas and car parking for work) because of the Tory Rishi Sunak as the previous Chancellor of the Exchequer money printing escapades is hurting and I don't even have any Debts.
