Salad Daze – The law of the lettuce
“Liz Truss has already secured her place in British political history. However long she now lasts in office, she is set to be remembered as the prime minister whose grip on power was the shortest. Ms Truss entered Downing Street on September 6th. She blew up her own government with a package of unfunded tax cuts and energy-price guarantees on September 23rd. Take away the ten days of mourning after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, and she had seven days in control. That is roughly the shelf-life of a lettuce.”
Taking up the theme, on Saturday October 15th The Daily Star front page asked “How long can wet lettuce Liz romaine?” pitting the PM’s shelf life against a lettuce.
