“We went too far and too fast,” Prime Minister Liz Truss apologized for her failed economic policy that Jeremy Hunt is now reversing.
That, however, does not mean that she is ready to resign. Truss clearly said she would not resign as Prime Minister and would remain in office. She insisted she would lead the Conservatives into the next general election.
The polls, however, have never been less promising for the Conservative Party. The new poll by Redfield and Wilton revealed today as Liz Truss’s premiership continues to suffer. Labour has the largest lead of any party since October 1997.
The government’s emergency action yesterday was to reassure the markets, which have reacted positively.
As much as Truss’s apology, it may not have worked since the word in Westminster is that she has lost her MPs’ confidence.
