The new Prime Minister Liz Truss was warned during Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs) by a Labour MP, that she “does not have the support of the British public” and she “can’t even rely on the backing of her own MPs.”

Truss was then asked will she “do the right and decent thing and call a General Election,” to which she said she is “focused” on the “serious issues” which the UK is currently facing.

MP for Pontypridd Alex Davies-Jones said, “The new Prime Minister is now finally imposed. But make no mistake, she does not have the support of the British public.

“She can’t even rely on the backing of her own MPs, and people in Pontypridd will never forget that she played a key role in a government that failed millions.

“So, will she now finally do the right and decent thing and call a general election?”

The Prime Minister replied, “We are facing very serious issues as a country; partly as a result of the aftermath of Covid, partly as a result of Putin’s war in Ukraine.

“What the British people want is, they want a Government that is going to sort it out.

“That is what I am determined to do as Prime Minister, sort out the energy crisis, get our economy going, make sure people can get doctor’s appointments.

“That’s what I’m focused on.”

The former Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May then told the Commons, “May I congratulate her and welcome her to her position as the third female prime minister.

“Can I ask her why does she think it is that all three female prime ministers have been Conservative?”

Truss Ma her for her “fantastic question,” then added, “I look forward to calling on her advice from her time in office as I start my work as Prime Minister.

“It is quite extraordinary, isn’t it, that there doesn’t seem to be the ability in the Labour Party to find a female leader, or indeed a leader who doesn’t come from north London.”

There was then raucous cries from the Tory benches, and Truss concluded, “I don’t know what it is, I don’t know what the issue is.”
