“The worst prime minister in recent years is Tony Blair”, said Liz Truss who lasted just 49 days in office before resigning for her economic policies.

Reasons for Statement Revealed

Truss explained her reasoning for the statement, which many found bizarre, citing several acts that protect human rights, introduced by Blair.

Truss claimed that Blair was the worst Prime Minister because he “created things like the Equality Act, the Human Rights Act and the Climate Change Act.”

Despite these claims, fact-checkers found that Gordon Brown, not Tony Blair, introduced the Equality Act and the Climate Change Act.

Truss using these as reasons for her choice of “worst Prime Minister in recent times” shows her character, as the Equality Act attempts to stamp out discrimination in the workplace.

Democratic System Change

In the interview, Truss also claimed that the country’s democratic process needed changing since external parties have the power to delay or overrule a decision made by the PM.

“We have a problem in this country that someone elected on a mandate can’t deliver that mandate because the unelected state don’t want to deliver it,” said Truss.

Truss has also been criticised for her failure to speak out against another political commentator who called far-right figure Tommy Robinson a “hero” during an interview with the former Prime Minister.
