The race to become Britain’s new prime minister is getting more and more crowded, with new entrants jumping in over the weekend, including Foreign Secretary Liz Truss.
Successors to Johnson seek to stand out in crowded UK field
British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has promised to “start cutting taxes from day one” to help with the cost of living as she launched her campaign to be the country’s next prime minister.
She becomes the tenth candidate to launch their campaign to replace Boris Johnson, following an announcement from trade minister Penny Mordaunt earlier on Sunday.
Candidates have released slick campaign videos on social media and appeared on Sunday morning political talk shows to make their cases to the public.
In beginning her campaign, Truss argued “it isn’t right to be putting up taxes now”, and as leader she would take “immediate action” to assist with living costs.
