“Brits Wanted to Know if Liz Truss Would Outlast a Head of Lettuce. She Didn’t“
I posted my last post six hours ago around 1:35 A.M. I had awoke laughing about Kevin McCarthy – and the Head of Lettuce – that is going into my Bond Book! Do I need Liz’s permission to make her Elizabeth Pruss….The Head of Let US?
Elizabeth will join BAD and is used as a Foil to study BIG LOSERS! I know my Brits! There will appear a million words about what went wrong – by Thanksgiving!
“How could we elect such a loser to head our government? Are – we to blame?”
Alas I have the anti-thesis for James Bond – THE BIG WINNER!
“Starfish studied Ms. Pruss, intently, with her infamous fish-eye. Alas, her mouth was open, and Victoria gnashed her teeth. “How come they call you The Fighter, when it appears to me you are…..A Quitter?”
There are a thousand losers heading world governments. If Liz wants to become a thespian, she is welcome to help make….THE WORST BOND MOVIE…..ever!
All hail the conquering lettuce.
British tabloid Daily Star seized on the comparison, quickly setting up a live feed of a head of lettuce next to Truss’ photo and asking: “Will Liz Truss outlast this lettuce?”
In a cheeky contest held by the British tabloid The Daily Star to see whether Prime Minister Liz Truss could outlast the shelf-life of a head of lettuce, it was the Conservative Party leader who wilted first.
LONDON — British Prime Minister Liz Truss resigned Thursday after just six weeks in office, following a disastrous and rapidly reversed economic plan that sent the pound plunging and her government into chaos.
Having been formally appointed by Queen Elizabeth II on Sept. 6, Truss is now by far the shortest-serving prime minister in British history and will be remembered as one of the most calamitous.
The previous holder of this record, George Canning, lasted 119 days in the early 19th century; Truss announced her resignation after 44 days.
A leadership contest is now underway to decide the next head of the ruling Conservative Party, who will by default become the next prime minister, and will conclude in the next week. The opposition Labour Party called for an immediate national election.
