A new Prime Minister at no.10 Downing Street

One of the top priorities is that of cutting taxes that the new Prime Minister has said would reboot a stalled economy. Not just Tories but all of Britain will see how Truss deals with cutting income tax and slashing VAT on the economic front besides dealing with the issue of immigration

Liz Truss, the former British Foreign Secretary, has finally made it to the top in the race for the person to succeed Boris Johnson as leader of the Tories. The tussle was by no means an easy affair as India origin Rishi Sunak was in no mood to relent fighting a bitter but professional battle till the very end. That finally he would gracefully concede defeat saying “We are all Conservatives” sums it all up and contrasts with the scandalous mud slinging that is going on by Donald Trump and his extremist supporters in the United States still clinging on to the fraudulent claim that the November 2020 Presidential election was somehow “stolen”.

Truss is the third lady Prime Minister of Britain after Margaret Thatcher and Theresa May and presides over a country and a region in challenging times. The Iron Lady Thatcher was the Prime Minister between 1979 and 1990 and had a staunch conservative colleague in Washington DC by way of Ronald Reagan for a good part of her tenure, the two of them not only challenging the military might and economically bankrupting Moscow but also ultimately paving the way for the end of the Cold War and the disintegration of Soviet Union.
