Liz Truss is a British Tory politician who has been Foreign Secretary since September 2021, having served in various cabinet positions under Prime Ministers David Cameron, Theresa May and Boris Johnson.[1]

Task Force Europe

On 19 December 2021, Liz Truss was appointed Chief Negotiator of Task Force Europe following Lord Frost's resignation.[2]

Leading the World

On 13 February 2022, Mike Small wrote an article entitled "Leading the World" in Bella Caledonia, which began:

Self-doubt, like guilt, are useful emotions. They can be crippling but like everything in moderation they can be essential correctives too: ‘Can I do this?’ ‘Should I do this?’ ‘Should I have done that?’ Sadly Liz Truss seemed to have not a shred of self-doubt not a moment of Imposter-Syndrome as she arrived in Moscow representing us, however improbably, as Foreign Secretary.

Wanton uselessness

While the Cabinet is riddled with truly ghastly bastards, awful sick people, none of them exude the sort of wanton uselessness of Truss who arrived into a scene of international crisis-diplomacy looking like a child waiting for someone to collect her from Lost and Found. She was completely unprepared, had no message, her tone and body-language were pitiful and she talked over the translators before blundering in basic Russian geography.

Left at the podium

Left at the Moscow podium like a jilted bride

Sergey Lavrov left her at the podium like a jilted bride. There is the possibility that this was an expensive joke but Truss’s botched trip certainly made things worse in a situation of very high stakes. Ben Wallace was sent the next day to try and fix her mess.[3]
