Who is Liz Truss?
The new leader of the Conservative partyr was born on July 26, 1975 into a leftist family: a mathematics teacher and a nuclear disarmament advocate whom she accompanied to demonstrations as a child.
However, while studying politics and economics at Oxford he chaired a youth group for the centrist Liberal Democrat Party, where he began to show strong political views.
“I think she always liked the attention of being a bit controversial,” Kiron Reid, a fellow member of Truss’s in the ranks of the Young Liberal Democrats, told The Times.
Liz Truss has been developed under the model of Margaret Thatcher, one of the three women who have held the position of Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and the most remembered to date.
The so-called “Iron Lady” took the reins of her country – just like Truss does – in a moment of crisis, and ruled it with a heavy hand from 1979 to 1990.
However, despite the parallels that exist between Truss and Thatcher, the new occupant of Downing Street shares neither the origin nor the political conviction that characterized her model.
