The Evil of Two Lessers
Liz Truss is in Downing Street and we’re here to deliver, deliver, deliver our thoughts on the new PM. She’s promised to do all the stuff and fix all the things – but hasn’t really said how. Does she know herself? We delve into the mind of the new Tory figurehead. Our guest this week is journalist and historian Seth Alexander Thévoz, author of The Secret Life of London Private Members’ Clubs.
• “Perhaps boring could play well for her, but it has to be backed up by detail. It was the boring version of Johnson.” – Hannah Fearn
• "She's embracing being a dull PM after the whirlwind of Johnson." – Ros Taylor
• “Truss cannot move people, she cannot inspire people. So she has to use a borrowed ideology and riff on that.” – Ros Taylor
• “No prime minister ever wants to start banging on about an energy crisis. It’s the worst possible set of circumstances to be in.” – Seth Alexander Thévoz
