British Prime Minister apologizes to his countrymen. It’s about … a tax cut
– I want to take responsibility and say I’m sorry for the mistakes that have been made. I wanted to act, but to help people with their energy bills, to deal with the high tax issue, but we went too far and too fast. I recognize it – said Truss in an interview with the BBC.
In line with her plan to stimulate economic growth through tax cuts, former finance minister Kwasi Kwarteng was already over three weeks ago announced wide-ranging tax cutswhich, however, were disastrously received by the financial markets because they were to be financed by increasing the state’s indebtedness. In an attempt to save his position, Truss canceled Quarteng i on Friday She appointed Jeremy Hunt in his place, who withdrew almost all announcements made.

Truss, who has been prime minister for six weeks, admitted that the period was “not perfect” but corrected the mistakes and added that it would be irresponsible not to change course. – I think this is a sign of an honest politician who says “Yes, I made a mistake. I took care of that mistake. And now we have to keep our promises.” It would be completely irresponsible for me not to act in the national interest in the way that I have (at my disposal) – she explained.
He counts on staying in his position
When asked if her vision for Britain was dead, Truss replied that she acted in the national interest and remained committed to her vision, but would have to be delivered “otherwise” and that it could take longer.
She also assured her that she intended to lead the conservatives to the next elections. – It is important that I was elected to this position in order to implement the program for the country. We are facing very difficult times. We simply cannot afford to spend time talking about the Conservative Party and not what we need to deliver. This is my message to my colleagues, said Truss.
