  • Attending a summit in Prague was “not about moving closer to Europe,” Liz Truss has said following her appearance at the European Political Community event.
    The prime minister, who backed the Remain campaign for before switching sides to become a fervent Brexiteer, sought to present the UK as a crucial ally in Europe despite its non-membership of the European Union.
    “It is very important that we work with our neighbours and allies to face down Putin but also deal with the issues we face... This is not about moving closer to Europe,” Ms Truss said.

      If there is a society where dignified existence costs 33.33k per year while every citizen is given 100k per year to spend as they wish then such society will grow much faster than a society where the dignified existence costs 33.33k but nobody is giving anything to anybody without adding conditions...like do as told if you want that 33.33k per year.

    Liz truss reminds me of that girl at school, who copied everything from someone else to get to where she is, then when she gets into a position in her own she doesn’t have a clue.

      She's not a popular girl. So I don't get that analogy. She's more like the nerd who the popular girls use.
