  • British PM Liz Truss is already more unpopular than her predecessor in the government, also Tory Boris Johnson, and even than former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, according to a poll released on Wednesday, coinciding with the closing of the Conservative Congress in Birmingham (central England).
  • The new chief executive’s popularity has plummeted in recent days after a tumultuous week in which she has been questioned following the announcement of her economic plan to grow the economy and after backtracking on one of the measures in that program, the lowering of the top income tax bracket from 45% to 40%.
  • This survey, released today by YouGov on its website, reveals that only 14% of citizens now admit to having a “favorable” impression of Truss, compared to 26% surveyed between September 21 and 22.
