The UK New Prime Minister Liz Truss May Last Six Months. As the UK absorbs, Liz Truss will become the next leader of the Conservative party and the next Prime Minister, it begs the question of how long she will last.
One of the fundamental things that most people need to recognise is that Liz Truss will never be anything like Margaret Thatcher. During Margaret Thatcher’s Premiership, she governed the country sternly, and even though one may not like the policies she promoted, she was a formidable individual.
Unfortunately, Liz Truss does not have the confidence of the entire Conservative party, as can be seen by the number of resignations within the party the minute the result came out that she had won the leadership race. I think Liz Truss cannot effectively govern the United Kingdom or function adequately on the world stage.
Apart from a compelling personality, a Prime Minister must have the ability to unite their party and be able to have everyone or the majority of the parliamentary party pulling in the same direction. Unfortunately, I cannot see Liz Truss in that role.
The parliamentary ministers loyal to Boris Johnson will give her a tough time. She is facing an uphill battle, one that she will not be able to win. The majority of the electorate in the UK is struggling with high fuel costs, inflation, and the NHS in crisis. The new PM will soon realise she bites off more than she can chew.
She must overcome significant challenges, and quite frankly, this massive economic crisis she faces will be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. I give her six months before, once again, the Tory herd will be looking for a new leader.
Liz Truss could become the shortest ruling Prime Minister in UK’s history. After my pessimistic view of the new PM, I still hope she will be an effective Prime Minister and give the electorate the help we need to survive the coming months.
