Majority of Brits want Liz Truss to resign – poll

Liz Truss news

Over one-third of Conservatives surveyed also want the prime minister to quit.

More than half of Britons want Prime Minister Liz Truss to resign, a new poll published on Friday by YouGov shows. According to the survey, 51% of almost 5,000 respondents want her to quit, while only about a quarter of those polled believe she should stay. Just under a quarter said they did not have any particular opinion on the matter.

The news comes as Truss and Chancellor of the Exchequer Kwasi Kwarteng face a backlash over a new spending plan designed to spur economic growth and help alleviate the effects of soaring energy prices in the short term. The plan, which involve a large package of unfunded tax cuts, sent sterling plummeting to record lows against the US dollar on Monday.

The UK’s bond market also experienced the largest one-day sell-off in its history. Deutsche Bank estimated that the plan would push the UK’s debt-to-GDP ratio to around 101%, which would be the highest national debt level since 1962.

On Wednesday, Truss’ government faced criticism from billionaire investor and founder of Bridgewater Associates Ray Dalio, who argued that a rapid debt increase amid a lack of demand for the British pound globally would lead to disaster.

The recent developments have also seen the Tories’ popularity take a severe hit. According to another YouGov poll published on Thursday, the Labour Party has surged to a 33-point lead over the Conservatives. If elections were held today, the latter would garner just 21% of the vote, whereas more than half of Britons would vote Labour.

Kwarteng appears to be even less popular than Truss, with 54% of Brits polled wanting him to resign, according to YouGov. Only 19% of respondents said they would like the chancellor to remain in his role.

The poll results come as Truss is heading into the Conservative Party’s annual conference scheduled for this Sunday. The prime minister, who has been in office for less than a month, enjoys the support of just around 43% of Conservative voters, while more than a third of her party backers (36%) also want her to quit, the YouGov poll shows.

  1. This poll was done before UK and US did the international terrorist act of blowing up nord stream gas pipelines. Not all Brits will accept this and this is going to affect the relationship with EU countries, if not now, but later on. French will expose this on behalf of Germans at the opportune time.

    There is also a force which is working on brining BoJo back. Pretty messy in UK but it is going to gert worse once the winter sets in. I wish for a very severe, one in 100 year, col winter for UK as a matter of payback for the karma. ????????????‍♂️????????

  2. Truss was severely anti-Monarchy as a kid, but the hypocrisy oozed thru when she was the last person to see the Queen officiate in what would be Her Majesty’s last act and duty.
    Truss has also made it known that her Cabinet would NOT have white men populating the same at any level…
    Liz(ard) Truss is doing exactly that; ‘Trussing-up British Society into strangulating itself with political correctness, racist discrimination on her part, uplifting those who are incompetent, and being a little mouthpiece for WEF Globalism.
    ‘BoJo the Party Boffin’ may or may not be back, but the population (from what I’m hearing from Veterans in the U.K.) realises that swapping Truss for Bojo will still be ‘business as usual’ with people dying in the U.K. from cold, starvation, and reactions from the Covid Bio-Weapon Boosters!
    It’s amazing the brutality of the Cops in the U.K. is now equaling that which is done by the militarised Alphabet Law Enforcement in the U.S..
    See Paul Joseph Watson’s take at Sunnit News.com for his report on how disgusting and ridiculous the U.K. Cops have become in enforcing laws that don’t exists, going about policing free speech, and arresting those who do not comply with the WEF / NWO / LGBT/Trans Agenda designed to destroy Western and in particular, British and American Societies.
    Liz(ard) Truss is just that; an egg-laying idealism lizard that hopes her WEF / NWO / LGBT / ANTIFA / BLM Agendas will hatch and complete the destruction of the horrible White Race in the U.K.
    Noteworthy is the large number of Veterans from the U.K., Europe and the U.S. who are arriving in Russia to support Putin in his pro-Christian ANTI-WEF / NWO / LGBT / BLM agenda, and serving as a defender of the Russian Orthodox Faith against the Khazarian Zionist / J3wi$h terror that has been imposed on the Donbass for 9 years.
    & BTW- the ‘shelling’ in the Donbass is being perpetrated by the Ukrainians themselves, but, as usual in the MSM, blamed on the Russians.
    The MSM in New Zealand is controlled by Zionist psychopaths, and due to the extensive brainwashing of the masses here by the same, is accepted as truth, and who are dismissive of the reports coming out of the Donbass by Patrick Lancaster, John Mark Dugan, The Aussie Cossack, and a host of other ‘on the ground’ reporters, since they are not ‘accredited’ by the NZ ‘Ministry of Truth’ as noted by Comrade JabSinDa.
    Comrade Ardern has been told and advised by the citizens of NZ to declare NZ a Neutral Nation, and NOT get involved in supporting Zionist genocidal Ukraine under the command of 2 J3wi$h Presidents who are doing the bidding of the Zionist Talmudic Noahide Law enforcers.
    In their eyes, we are just Goyim (cattle) to be used, as Kissinger stated in the late 1960’s.
    Nothing has changed since Vietnam….!
