Departing Downing Street after a final Cabinet meeting, Liz Truss said her seven weeks in power had left her “more convinced than ever” that the UK could not be “a low-growth country where the Government takes up an increasing share of our national wealth”. Quoting Seneca, she said “it’s not because things are difficult than we do not dare, it’s because we do not dare that they are difficult.”
Soon after, Rishi Sunak wanted of a “profound economic crisis”, that “mistakes were made” under his predecessor, and that his government would have “integrity, professionalism, and accountability at every level.” Jeremy Hunt, James Cleverly, and Ben Wallace remained in post; Dominic Raab, Suella Braverman, and Michael Gove returned to government. The saga continues.
