No, Liz Truss didn’t find the lettuce funny

The lettuce that outlasted Liz Truss’ premiership doesn’t make her laugh.

Despite her chaotic, market-crashing period in Downing Street, Truss did not see the funny side of the Daily Star’s live stream of a lettuce.

“I don’t think it was particularly funny, I think it’s puerile,” Truss told Irish broadcaster RTÉ — after she snapped at the interviewer for even asking the question.

Truss, who left office after 44 days while lettuce was still going strong, spoke at the EBU’s NewsXchange conference on Monday.

The focus of Truss’ foreign policy intervention since leaving No. 10 has been U.K.-Chinese relations. In May, she became the first former British prime minister to visit Taiwan and called for “more action” from the West.

During her interview with RTÉ’s David McCullagh, Truss was primarily asked about her brief tenure at No. 10, when she announced large-scale borrowings and unfunded tax cuts, which she then reversed within weeks.

According to Truss, the UK is in “serious economic trouble” and must be “bold” to reverse falling economic growth. Her economic reforms “could have gone a bit slower” because she lacked support from Tory MPs.
