No apology from Liz Truss as she bids farewell to No10
Liz Truss delivered her final speech outside the famous black door of No10.
After the short speech, Truss then was driven to Buckingham Palace where she tendered her resignation to the King.
Her speech remained defiant, with no hint of an apology despite the economic misery her mini-Budget caused and her chaotic 45 days in power.
Truss’s husband and two daughters stood to the side as she delivered her speech – a speech that insisted hers was the right goal and the right time.
Her speech was less than half the length of the final speech from Boris Johnson.
Liz Truss speech criticised
The SNP’s Kirsten Oswald, the party’s deputy Westminster leader, said: “It beggars belief that Liz Truss couldn’t bring herself to apologise – or utter a single word of regret – for the catastrophic damage she has done to the UK economy.”
She said families are “paying through their teeth for her mistakes”, and repeated the SNP’s calls for an independent Scotland to rid the country of “Westminster control”.
