After ‘coming up with Brexit goodies,’ Liz Truss was dubbed a ‘modern-day Thatcher.’
Many Conservative Party members regard Liz Truss not only as the international face of Global Britain, but also as their modern-day Margaret Thatcher, according to reports.

“For 20 years, Britain has been governed by a series of pragmatic prime ministers — Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, David Cameron, and Theresa May. “Boris Johnson has not only broken that pattern with his opportunistic embrace of Brexit; he has elevated a cohort of determined neoliberals who want to inject free enterprise back into British politics,” Ms Isaac continued in her report for POLITICO.
