Lettuce pray

Liz Truss, we hardly knew ye!

Some of the most enjoyable television can be found on C-Span. The indentured servants at the Stately Manor leave their looms unattended whenever Mitch McConnell spars with Chuck Schumer on our b&w Philco. They cheer when ol’ Mitch manages a discreet grin at one corner of his mouth after a particularly vicious dig at the Democrat’s expense.

Debate is the very lifeblood of democracy. No one does it better than the Brits. C-Span airs the House of Commons question time. The questions, of course, are more loaded than Foster Brooks on the Dean Martin Show. 

“Would the right honorable gentle lady agree that under the Conservative government the wait for council housing has decreased by a decade?”

The Daily Star tabloid posed an unexpected question last Friday, after Truss sacked her chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng and U-turned on her disastrous mini-budget, seemingly putting her premiership on course for a collision with an iceberg. “Can Liz Truss outlast a lettuce?” To test the theory it set up a live stream showing a 24/7 view of a lettuce alongside a picture of Truss, which quickly went viral.

But Tuesday night’s episode of Prime Minister question time 10-18-22 was remarkable for the absence of the prime minister (at the time), Liz Truss. “Has there been a coup?” asked one Labour member. The poor lady materialized only when her second chancellor of the exchequer stood at the dispatch boxes to walk back her Reaganesque economic plan. The bankers won and so did neo-socialist Labour.

Liz Truss is the New Coke of politics. The Edsel of leadership. Britain’s Tom Eagleton. Maggie Thatcher could have forced a low-tax pro-growth platform down the gullets of her TINOs (Tories In Name Only). But this Truss has no iron. The betting now is Boris Johnson returns to Number #10 and holds a toga party. 

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Now is the perfect time for King Charles 3 to channel his illustrious predecessor Charles 1 and prorogue Parliament!

Who else needs a good proroguing?

    So we go from Disraeli, Gladstone, Churchill, and Thatcher to … Johnson and Truss. The UK seems to be vanishing into decline and decadence even faster than the US.
