Could a civil war between the Targaryens be settled if they all studied their laws more carefully? Good…

The Dance of the Dragons that divided and shattered House Targaryen happened because of succession issues. A fight has broken out between the two candidates for the Iron Throne: Rhaenyra Targaryen, the daughter of King Viserys from his first wife Aemma, and Aegon II Targaryen, his son from his second wife, Alicent Hightower.

Rhaenyra was proclaimed heiress by the king himself, and all Westerosi lords swore allegiance to her. Meanwhile, Aegon II has one advantage considered essential in patriarchal Westerosi society: he is a man.

Is Aegon next in line for the throne?

But what do the laws of Westerosi say about this? The fact that Rhaenyra is a woman does not mean that she cannot become an heiress – this has been proven by the recognition of the king and the lords. In addition, the Widow’s Act – which is a codified law that nullifies traditions – states that it is forbidden to “disinherit the children of a first wife in order to confer their lands, seat or property on a subsequent wife or his children”.

This essentially means that the law is on Rhaenyra’s side – just like the majority of “House of the Dragon” fans.

“Once Viserys crossed the rigamarole to officially make Rhaenyra his legal heir, the Iron Throne was his seat by inheritance, preventing any children of a later marriage from being ahead of Rhaenyra in the line of succession,” said Reddit user. Matthew the First suggested.

There was only one chance for Aegon II to become a rightful heir, even under widow’s law – but King Viserys effectively stripped him of such a chance before he was even born.

“If Viserys had never claimed Rhaenyra as his heir, I believe Aegon would legally be the heir based on primogeniture – he would simply have passed to him from Rhaenyra at birth,” Redditor GSGhostTrain Noted.

However, it seems that the codified law means little when it comes to the ambitions of the throne. Many lords were willing to stick to tradition rather than follow rules, so they stood by Queen Alicent and her son instead of accepting the reality of female Rhaenyra inheriting of the iron throne.

Interesting how this basically proves the words of Rhaenys Targaryen, the Queen Who Never Was, when she said the men of Westerosi would rather set the kingdom ablaze than see a woman on the throne. of iron.

We will see very soon how it ends for the Seven Kingdoms. “House of the Dragon” airs on HBO Max, with new episodes premiering every Sunday.

Before the series of coincidences that led Robert Todd Lincoln (and others) to believe that his presence was detrimental to the health of American presidents, he was involved in a bizarre incident that is a prime example of the bittersweet mix of good luck and tragic coincidence. which tormented Robert throughout his life. As HistoryNet documents, Robert was traveling by train from New York to Washington, D.C., during a break from his studies at Harvard sometime during the Civil War – probably 1863 or 1864. While changing trains in Jersey City, New Jersey, Robert s was found on a crowded train platform, piled back so his body was pushed against the stationary train. Suddenly, however, the train began to move, which knocked Robert over and knocked him into the gap between the platform and the train.

Before the President’s son could be crushed by the wheels of the train, wiping out the dead Lincoln boys, Robert found himself grabbed by the collar and hoisted to safety. When he looked up to see who had saved his life, he instantly recognized him. And why wouldn’t he? It was just America’s most famous Shakespearean actor, Edwin Booth (above). If the surname sounds familiar, it’s because Edwin was the brother of John Wilkes Booth, the least successful actor who would go on to assassinate Robert’s father, Abraham Lincoln, at Ford’s Theater in 1865. (It may (Be of note that Edwin was estranged from his brother precisely because Edwin was pro-Lincoln, but he didn’t know until years later that he had saved the president’s son.)

Delhi court reserves plea order for ‘heir’ of former ‘united province of Agra’ ruler on Qutub row https://cleversplitter.com/delhi-court-reserves-plea-order-for-heir-of-former-united-province-of-agra-ruler-on-qutub-row/ Tue, 13 Sep 2022 12:57:43 +0000 https://cleversplitter.com/delhi-court-reserves-plea-order-for-heir-of-former-united-province-of-agra-ruler-on-qutub-row/ A court here on Tuesday reserved its order on an application to intervene saying the intervener was a “necessary party” to an appeal seeking the restoration of Hindu and Jain deities at an alleged temple complex inside Qutub Minar.

A court here on Tuesday reserved its order on an application to intervene saying the intervener was a “necessary party” to an appeal seeking the restoration of Hindu and Jain deities at an alleged temple complex inside Qutub Minar.

The court was hearing arguments from claimant Kunwar Mahender Dhwaj Pratap Singh, who claimed he was the heir to the former ruler of the ‘united province of Agra’ and the owner of plots of land in several cities in Delhi and of the surroundings, including the property of Qutub Minar.

“Arguments heard. Coming to order on September 17, 2022 at 4 p.m.,” said Additional District Judge Dinesh Kumar. ML Sharma, Singh’s lawyer, claimed that the plaintiff was the heir of the former ruler of the United Province of Agra who had ruled the region since the 16th century. The ruling family owned the territory between the Ganga and Yamuna rivers, he said.

Sharma alleged that the government had encroached on the entire area and three petitions in this regard were pending in the Allahabad High Court. Singh has also made representations to the prime minister, president and relevant authorities to settle the “constitutional dispute”, the lawyer said. Without any amalgamation, treaty or instrument of adhesion, or payment of compensation, the government took over the land of the intervenor which was encroached on millions of people on behalf of the government, the lawyer claimed. Meanwhile, the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) lawyer said Singh had no locus standi in the case and the claim of ownership lapsed in principle. The doctrine says that the courts will not help people who sleep on their rights.

Noting that at the current stage of the trial, the court cannot rule on the veracity of the claims made in the motion, the judge asked, even if they were found to be true, how was Singh a necessary party in the affair ? “The law is settled (on this aspect). You must show yourself as a legitimate or necessary party,” the judge said. “The government may be the encroachment, but you have to get your right settled by a (separate) court,” the judge said, adding, “This court cannot decide the question of land ownership.” At the last hearing on August 24, the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) had opposed the plea, saying the request to intervene was “without merit and devoid of any logical or legal reasoning”.

Prior to the filing of the petition, the court reserved the appeal order against an order of the trial court, dismissing the action brought by lawyer Hari Shankar Jain on behalf of Jain deity Tirthankar Lord Rishabh Dev, claiming that 27 temples had been partially demolished by Qutubdin Aibak. , a general in the army of Mohammad Gauri, and the Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque was raised inside the complex by reusing the material.

In addition to the restoration of the deities in the alleged temple complex, the original lawsuit had also requested the issuance of instructions to the central government for the development of an administration plan and the creation of a trust to maintain the property, to worship and conduct of puja.

Civil Judge Neha Sharma had dismissed the lawsuit in December 2021, saying that in accordance with the provisions of the law and the relevant government notification, ownership of the property belonged to the government and the plaintiffs had no right to claim restoration and the right to religion. worship.

King Charles, in his maiden speech, praises his ‘beloved mama’ and appoints heir William as the new Prince of Wales https://cleversplitter.com/king-charles-in-his-maiden-speech-praises-his-beloved-mama-and-appoints-heir-william-as-the-new-prince-of-wales/ Fri, 09 Sep 2022 18:19:04 +0000 https://cleversplitter.com/king-charles-in-his-maiden-speech-praises-his-beloved-mama-and-appoints-heir-william-as-the-new-prince-of-wales/ King Charles III said on Friday that his mother Queen Elizabeth’s 96 years demonstrated “a life well lived, a promise with a destiny kept”, and pledged in his first speech as king to serve his people as she did.

King Charles III said on Friday that his mother Queen Elizabeth’s 96 years demonstrated “a life well lived, a promise with a destiny kept”, and pledged in his first speech as king to serve his people as she did.

The 73-year-old new monarch, whose speech aired nearly 24 hours after his mother’s death was announced, also named his son and heir, Prince William, Prince of Wales, a title usually held by the male heir to the throne, as well as his successor as Duke of Cornwall, assuming responsibilities “which I have borne for more than five decades”.

The King has declared William’s wife Catherine, currently Duchess of Cambridge, to become Princess of Wales, a title previously held by Charles’ first wife, Princess Diana, who died in a car accident in 1997, about a year after their divorce.

But the monarch did not report any new roles for her younger son and US-born daughter-in-law, simply saying, “I express my love to [Prince] Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives overseas.

The bulk of Charles’ nine-minute speech, recorded at Buckingham Palace after returning from Balmoral Castle in Scotland, where he and Queen Consort Camilla were at Elizabeth’s bedside, centered on the woman he called ” my darling mum’, whose 70-year reign makes him the longest-serving heir in British history.

“Throughout her life, Her Majesty the Queen, my beloved mother, has been an inspiration, an example to me and to all my family,” said the king, dressed in a black suit, a white shirt and a black striped tie. “And we owe her the most sincere debt a family can owe to her mother for her love, her affection, her guidance, her understanding and her example.”

The monarch observed: “When the Queen ascended the throne, Britain and the world were still dealing with the deprivations and consequences of the Second World War and still living by the conventions of old times. Over the past 70 years we have seen our society become one of many cultures and many religions.

Charles said he understood “the role and duties of the monarchy also remain, as does the sovereign’s special relationship and responsibility to the Church of England”, where he will now serve as “supreme governor”. Charles will also inherit the title Defender of the Faith, a role he previously questioned in a TV interview.

Reflecting on the transformation that took place on Thursday afternoon, Charles said: “My life is of course going to change. As I take on my new responsibilities, it will no longer be possible for me to devote so much of my time and energy to the charities and issues that I care so deeply about. But I know that this important work will continue in the trusted hands of others. Some of the causes and charities that Charles has championed over the years include the environment, sustainability education and architecture.

He urged his listeners to “remember and draw strength from the light” of the late Queen’s example. He said he was grateful for the expressions of sympathy and support, noting “they mean more to me than I can ever express.”

Concluding the first initial remarks from a king since his grandfather George VI’s famous radio address in 1936, Charles addressed the woman he now follows as monarch.

“To my darling mum,” he said in an emotionally charged voice, as you begin your last great journey to join my dear late dad, “I just want to say this: thank you. Thank you for your love and devotion to our family and the family of nations. You have served so diligently all these years. May the flights of angels sing your rest.

The Prince of Wales became King, having acceded to the throne immediately upon the death of his mother, the Queen.

Charles – the nation’s oldest heir apparent, from the age of three – now fulfills his royal destiny and reigns as monarch.

Despite his grief, duty calls the new king at the start of this new royal era, demanding that he immediately attend to affairs of state as sovereign and lead the nation in mourning.

Charles – now referred to as Her Majesty rather than Her Royal Highness – is set to deliver a televised speech in honor of his beloved mother.

He will meet the Prime Minister, confirm funeral plans and visit the UK with his wife, Camilla, who is now Queen consort and bears the title of Queen, in the coming days.

Charles automatically became king due to the 17th century Bill of Rights (1689) and the Act of Settlement (1701).

But there must be a formal proclamation of him as the new monarch at an accession council at St James’s Palace in London as soon as possible.

The Council is usually convened the day after a sovereign dies.

It is made up of two parts.

First, the Privy Council – to which 200 of the more than 700 Privy Councilors will be summoned – meets without the sovereign to proclaim the new monarch and settle matters related to the proclamation.

Then, in a second time, the new King holds his first Privy Council.

Charles will make a personal statement about the Queen and then take an oath to preserve the Church of Scotland – because in Scotland there is a division of powers between Church and State.

Afterwards, the first public proclamation of the new Sovereign is read in the open air from the balcony of Friary Court at St James’s Palace by the Garter King of Arms in the presence of the Earl Marshal and two of the Sovereign’s Sergeants-at-Arms.

The Garter King of Arms reads the first and main proclamation of the accession of Queen Elizabeth II in 1952 (PA)

In the midst of a large ceremony, trumpeters usually play a fanfare from the balcony and shots are fired in Hyde Park and the Tower of London.

The proclamation will then be read at the Royal Exchange in the City of London.

It is also read publicly at some time in other cities, including Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast and usually in Windsor and York, where the mayor traditionally drinks to the health of the new ruler from a golden goblet.

Charles has become known for his commitment to royal duty, environmental campaigning and charity work over the years.

But his personal troubles have also marred his long wait to be monarch – including the breakdown of his marriage to the Princess of Wales and his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles, now his wife and queen.

Camilla was approved to be known as Queen by her stepmother 17 years after she married the prince in 2005.

The Queen with Charles and Camilla (Victoria Jones/PA)

At the time of her marriage, aides insisted that Camilla did not want to be queen and would not be known as such.

As Britain’s head of state, Charles will now assume constitutional and representational functions that have developed over 1,000 years of history.

He is now head of the armed forces and head of the Church of England, as well as monarch of many Commonwealth realms.

The coronation of the new king is not expected to take place for several months and will involve very detailed planning.

Dubbed Operation Golden Orb, the service at Westminster Abbey is set to be shorter, cheaper and more inclusive for multi-faith Britain.

But the coronation remains a deeply religious Anglican event.

The Queen acceded to the throne in February 1952, but her coronation did not take place until 16 months later, in June 1953.

Unlike the Queen, who became sovereign in her 20s, Charles has spent more than 70 years – almost his entire life – as king-in-waiting, becoming the longest-serving heir in British history.

Queen Elizabeth’s heir Prince Charles ‘not a fan favourite’: Who will be king?

The fear of Queen Elizabeth’s declining health has sparked a large amount of backlash among royal fans who are already curious about the next king who will take on the monarchy.

It all started to overtake social media after Buckingham Palace released a statement about the Queen’s ongoing health scare.

It reads: ‘Following a further assessment this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended that she remains under medical supervision. The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral.

This idea was brought to light by Princess Diana’s former voice coach, Stewart Pearce.

Princess Diana’s former voice coach, Stewart Pearce, posted this shocking idea.

He began by telling The Sun: “[Charles] may not take the throne, he may hand it over to his young son. He doesn’t want to do it, such a difficult task.

He added that Prince William has also been “part of the conversation”, and has been since he was a teenager.

However, the UCL website writes: “Under common law, Prince Charles will automatically become King upon the death of the Queen. Prince William could only become king if Prince Charles chooses to abdicate.

In order to change the line of succession or remove Prince Charles, “it would require legislation, as happened with the declaration of abdication in 1936. The line of succession is regulated by parliament (as in the act Succession of 1700 and Succession to the Crown Act 2013); it can only be changed by Parliament and cannot be changed unilaterally by the monarch of the day.

An heir to the Estée Lauder cosmetics fortune has settled a lawsuit with his ex-mistress over his $7million Bel Air mansion that he says he shouldn’t have to pay for.

William Lauder, 62, is no longer at war with his former lover Taylor Stein after she sued him for failing to make annual payments on the five-bed, six-bathroom property.

Details of the August 9 settlement have not been shared and it is unclear whether Stein, a New York-born socialite, will be able to stay at the property with the couple’s 15-year-old daughter.

Lauder, who is also chairman of Estée Lauder, argued that Stein was no longer entitled to payments of $1 million a year from him after the couple’s daughter breached a confidentiality agreement with an Instagram post. .

His relationship with Stein began in 2000, when Lauder was still married to his ex-wife Karen, with whom he has two children.

Lauder, whose grandparents founded the Estée Lauder Companies in 1946, settled the lawsuit with Stein after she was allegedly forced into a confidentiality agreement to keep the identity of her daughter’s father a secret.

He said it was breached after the couple’s daughter made an Instagram post about her parents.

The legal war first erupted in August 2018 when Stein, 55, claimed Lauder had stopped paying for the five-bedroom house in Los Angeles – which he agreed to do while she was living there with their common teenage daughter.

Stein also adopted a son.

She took the billionaire businessman to court and claimed he was trying to evict the family from the Bel Air home.

But the cosmetics chairman clapped back in his own suit, saying he was exempt from making the annual payments for the $7million mansion because she broke their 2007 confidentiality agreement.

He reportedly drafted an agreement that Stein would receive an annual payment of $1 million if she did not publicly reveal that her daughter was in fact his child.

The 2007 agreement also purported to keep the mistress at least 100 yards away from any member of the Lauder family in Aspen, Palm Beach and New York.

However, in 2020, their teenage love child reportedly posted on social media, airing the family’s dirty laundry by recounting how his parents were divorced. It also violated the confidentiality agreement, sources said.

Billionaire Lauder and his former mistress, however, agreed to seal certain documents in the now settled lawsuit in an effort to protect sensitive information about their child, according to the New York Post.

Details of the lawsuit weren’t released – and it’s unclear if Stein, who is still listed as the owner of the $7million Bel Air home, will have to vacate the mansion.

The couple met at Lauder’s mansion in Aspen in 2000, while still married to his wife Karen.

Lauder and Stein reportedly began an affair the following year. She became pregnant in 2005 and Lauder told her to have an abortion because he was negotiating a settlement agreement with his wife, whom he divorced in 2009.

Stein – the daughter of New York nightclub entrepreneur Howard Stein – became pregnant a second time in 2006 and welcomed a baby girl the following spring.

Desperate to keep the birth a secret, Lauder reportedly sent Stein and the baby to Aspen to keep them away from the “gossip press”.

The latest developments in the couple’s legal battle came eight years after Stein and Lauder got into a shouting match on a Los Angeles street, which ended with a punch in the face.

Stein eventually pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor domestic violence charge and served 19 days of community service.

Cosmetic heir William Lauder has settled a lawsuit over a $7 million Bel Air mansion that sparked an all-out legal battle between the Estée Lauder chairman and his former mistress, New York socialite Taylor Stein, The Post.

According to court documents obtained by The Post, the executive chairman of the Estée Lauder Companies and Stein reached a settlement on August 9, but the terms of that agreement remain confidential.

Stein originally filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles in August 2018, claiming Lauder backed out of their deal when he refused to make annual payments for the sprawling five-bedroom, six-bathroom home as long as she , their teenage daughter and her brother lived there. .

Stein also alleged that Lauder continually harassed her and hired top private investigator Jack Palladino to spy on her, sources told the Post.

Lauder fired back with his own lawsuit and claimed that Stein violated their 2007 confidentiality agreement and a “non-disparagement” provision “multiple times”, which he says triggered a “clawback” provision that exempted him from having to pay for the house and would allow him to evict his baby mama and former mistress from the Bel Air mansion.

Under their 2007 deal, Lauder reportedly agreed to pay Stein $1 million for each year she remained silent and did not publicly reveal that he was her daughter’s father.

Lauder, son of billionaire Leonard and Evelyn Lauder, wanted to keep his affair with the socialite out of the press.

Stein, the daughter of legendary nightclub owner Howard Stein, agreed she would not come within 100 yards of members of the Lauder family in Palm Beach, Aspen and New York, according to a report by Forbes.

In court papers, Lauder said he “had no interest” in deporting Stein, his daughter, or Stein’s brother, but said the socialite “should not personally benefit from his failings.”

The feuding exes agreed on one thing: They asked the court to seal various documents in the case because of the sensitive information about them and their love child.

According to court records obtained by The Post, the judge on September 2 granted their joint motion to seal the documents to protect their teenage daughter.

The feud between the two began in 2020 after the couple’s then 13-year-old daughter posted on social media that her parents were divorced. Lauder said the post also violated the confidentiality agreement, sources said.

It’s unclear if Stein will have to vacate the residence, but according to the Los Angeles County Registrar’s Office, Stein’s trust is still listed as the owner of the $7 million Bel Air mansion.

Messages to Lauder and Stein’s attorneys were not returned.

The couple began their relationship when Lauder saw Stein at his Aspen mansion and were still married to his wife Karen. Their daughter was born as a result of the affair, but their relationship had been strained for years.

Stein was arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence in 2013 after the former couple argued on the street in Los Angeles.

The socialite pleaded no contest and was sentenced to complete 13 days of community service cleaning the streets for the California Department of Transportation.

Q: What questions should I be prepared to ask when consulting with an attorney about drafting a trust for my 55-year-old alcoholic son? What types of provisions would I like to add to my Will?

A: It can be difficult to set up a trust for someone with an addiction.

First, you need to decide who will be the trustee of the trust. Naming your son, while legally possible, is a bad idea because of his condition. But who do you want to entrust with the responsibility of serving as an administrator? Being the trustee of a trust for a beneficiary with an addiction is not a job that many people would want.

Second, you must decide what distributions can be made to him from the trust. Any money given directly to your son will likely be spent on booze and other things you consider reckless. Often, an addiction trust provides that most distributions should be made directly to other parties, not to your son.

For example, the trust could allow payment of rent, health insurance, medical care, food and clothing. The trust may allow your son to be reimbursed if he pays himself, but only if he provides the trustee with a receipt proving that he made the payment.

Third, you need to decide if the trust should contain provisions allowing for more distributions if your son cleans up his deed. The trust could be set up to pay for alcohol and drug testing, as well as some or all of the costs associated with a rehabilitation facility.

Fourth, you need to decide what powers, if any, your son would have over the trustee, such as being able to remove the trustee and replace him with another trustee of his choice.

Finally, you need to determine where the remaining assets of the trust will go after your son’s death.

It would be best for you to hire a certified estate planning attorney. Confidence like this can be hard to write.

Q: I want to donate a rental property located in Texas to my married son who also lives in Texas. When does it become community property? What happens to the status of the property in the event of a divorce?

LONDON (AP) — As a child, Liz Truss took part in protests against Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. As an adult, she came to admire Britain’s first female leader – and now she’s set to step into No 10 Downing St. with a Thatcherite zeal to transform the UK

Truss, Britain’s foreign secretary, was named the winner on Monday of the competition to replace scandal-ridden Boris Johnson as leader of the Conservative Party and the country’s prime minister. The party said Truss won the votes of about 57% of Conservative members, compared to about 43% for former Treasury chief Rishi Sunak.

Truss, 47, will become Britain’s third female prime minister, after Thatcher, who ruled from 1979 to 1990, and Theresa May, who served from 2016 to 2019.

Members of the Conservative Party endorsed Truss’ wishes to cut taxes and red tape and maintain Britain’s unwavering support for Ukraine. Some see echoes of the Iron Lady – as Thatcher was known – in Truss’ vision of a “network of freedom” linking democracies around the world.

For critics, Truss is an inflexible ideologue whose right-wing policies will not help Britain weather the economic turmoil unleashed by the pandemic, Brexit and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine..

Mark Littlewood, a libertarian commentator who has known Truss since college, said the new British leader was less a conservative than a “radical”, who – like Thatcher – wants to “roll back state intervention” in people’s life.

“I expect a lot of fireworks, a lot of controversy and a lot of action,” he said.

Born in Oxford in 1975, Mary Elizabeth Truss is the daughter of a math teacher and a nurse, who took her to anti-nuclear and anti-Thatcher protests as a child, where she remembers having shouted, “Maggie, Maggie, Maggie – out, out!”

In a 2018 speech, she said she started developing her own political views early, “arguing against my socialist parents in our left-leaning household.”

The family lived in Paisley, Scotland, before moving to Leeds, in the north of England, where Truss attended a public high school, setting her apart from her many privately educated Tory colleagues.

During the leadership campaign, Truss highlighted his relatively humble background. But she annoyed some former classmates and teachers when she said students at her school were “disappointed with low expectations, poor educational standards and a lack of opportunities”. The school’s alumni include scholars, judges and several other members of parliament.

Truss went to Oxford University, where she studied philosophy, politics and economics – the degree of choice for many aspiring politicians – and served as president of the university wing of the Liberal Democratic Party. Economically centrist Liberal Democrats support constitutional reform and civil liberties, and Truss was an enthusiastic member, posting “Free the Weed” posters that called for the decriminalization of marijuana and advocating in a speech for the abolition of the monarchy.

Littlewood, who was a member of the Oxford Lib Dems and now heads the Institute for Economic Affairs, a free market think tank, remembers Truss as “stubborn, determined and outspoken”.

“You never doubted his position on an issue or on a person,” he said.

After Oxford, Truss joined the Conservative Party – “when it was distinctly unfashionable”, she later said.

She worked as an economist for energy company Shell and telecommunications company Cable and Wireless, and for a centre-right think tank while engaging in conservative politics and espousing Thatcherite free market views. She was a local councilor in London and stood twice unsuccessfully for Parliament before being elected to represent the East England seat of South West Norfolk in 2010.

She won the Tory seat safely after a bump in the road – some local Tories were outraged when it was revealed she had an affair with another MP while the two were married to other people . Truss won over her critics and her marriage survived. She and her husband Hugh O’Leary, an accountant, have two teenage daughters.

She founded the Free Enterprise group of Thatcherite conservative lawmakers who produced ‘Britannia Unchained’, a political treatise that notoriously included the claim that British workers are ‘among the worst idlers in the world’.

David Laws, a former Cabinet minister who worked with Truss in government a decade ago, called her energetic and “a breathtakingly ambitious”, comparing her in his memoirs to “a young Margaret Thatcher at speed “.

Truss secured her first Cabinet post as Food and Environment Secretary in 2014, making her biggest impression with a much-derided speech in which she thundered that it was ‘a shame’ that the Great -Bretagne imports two-thirds of its cheese.

In Britain’s 2016 referendum on whether to leave the European Union, Truss supported the losing side of the “rest”, although she says she has always been a natural eurosceptic. Since the vote, she has won over Brexiteers with her no-compromise approach to the EU.

She became Justice Secretary, but was demoted to a more junior position in the Treasury in May 2017. When May was unseated by her repeated failure to break a political deadlock over Brexit, Truss was one early supporters of Boris Johnson to replace her. When he won, Johnson was named Truss’ trade secretary, a role in which she toured the world on Instagram signing post-Brexit trade deals and raising her profile.

In September 2021, she was appointed Foreign Secretary, Britain’s top diplomat. Her performance drew mixed reviews. Many praise her tough response to the invasion of Ukraine, and she secured the release of two British citizens imprisoned in Iran, where her predecessors had failed.

But European leaders and officials who hoped she would bring a softer tone to Britain’s relationship with the bloc have been disappointed. Amid trade wrangling, Truss has introduced legislation to tear up parts of the binding UK-EU divorce deal signed by the two sides. The 27-nation bloc is in turn taking legal action against Britain.

Truss sometimes suggested that the frequent comparisons to Thatcher were sexist, but at other times she encouraged them. She posed in a British Army tank in Eastern Europe, evoking an image of Thatcher during the Cold War. During a televised leadership debate, Truss sported a pussy-bow blouse like the one Thatcher wore.

By emphasizing her humble origins, she conjures up comparisons to the grocer’s daughter Thatcher, said Victoria Honeyman, associate professor of British politics at the University of Leeds – “the working-class girl who did well”.

Truss’ own personality is hidden behind a stern public persona. Friends say she has a fun side rarely seen in public and loves karaoke and tunes from Taylor Swift, Whitney Houston and Destiny’s Child.

Truss’ perceived loyalty to Johnson, who remains popular with many conservatives, also helped her win. Many party members cited Sunak’s decision to leave Johnson’s cabinet in July as a mark against him. Truss hasn’t quit, saying she’s a ‘loyal person’ – despite courting party members for months at ‘fizz with Liz’ events to build support for a potential run for president. direction.

Conservatives embraced Truss’ optimistic message of liberation through less government, reminiscent of Ronald Reagan’s “Morning in America” ​​boosterism.

The wider British electorate is likely to prove a more difficult audience to win over. Times are tough and getting tougher as inflation soars and Britain’s cost of living crisis deepens. Truss’ focus on stimulating the economy through tax cuts shouldn’t bring much relief in the short term.

Centre-left commentator Will Hutton, writing in The Observer newspaper, said Truss’s economic ideas were “ruinous nonsense…constantly anti-Europe, obsessed with tax cuts, believing that regulations nameless hamper business”.

Truss doesn’t have long to convince voters she’s on the right track. The next national election is due to take place in two years.

“Will Liz be able to say in 2024, ‘Are you richer now than you were when I became Prime Minister?’ Maybe,” Littlewood said. “But it’s not an obvious slam dunk.”
