It's increasingly clear that the Conservatives are seriously out of touch

9 Sep 2022

Liz Truss is the new Prime Minister and local people have been reacting to the news.

The former Foreign Secretary will replace the outgoing Boris Johnson after pipping Rishi Sunak to the post after a Conservative leadership contest.

"I speak to hard working people and business owners every day who are worried sick about the cost of living crisis. People are worried about heating their family homes and business are worried about whether they will be able to keep their doors open."

"Instead of tackling this cost of living crisis, the Conservative MPs and government have instead spent the summer focusing on a long, drawn out leadership contest while Boris Johnson went on two foreign holidays.

"During this contest Liz Truss repeatedly stated her support of Boris Johnson while offering up no ideas to tackle the big issues of the day."

“Liberal Democrats have been proposing solutions to tackle the energy crisis to support families and businesses. I strongly urge our local MPs here in Hampshire to put party politics aside and pressure Liz Truss to implement the Lib Dem proposals before it is too late.”
