British Prime Minister , Liz Truss resigns Truss resigned on October 20. Truss resigned after just six weeks in office under continued pressure after he introduced an economic policy that sent the bond market crashing.
Truss defeated his home secretary Suella Braverman, who resigned on Wednesday less than a week after sacking his finance minister. Braverman pointed out “serious concerns” about the government.
The chaotic scene on Wednesday unfolded as the final straw for many Tory MPs, where a Labor motion on fracking came up, leading to chaos in the voting lobbies with shouting and screaming.
Later, a dozen or so Conservative MPs who rebelled didn’t even know they were still subject to the whip.
Truss sacked his chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng and, just five days later, replaced him with Jeremy Hunt, a former foreign secretary and health secretary.
