Liz Truss book – latest: Memoir reveals that ex-PM’s husband predicted premiership ‘would all end in tears’

Liz Truss has detailed her short tenure in Downing Street including how her husband predicted her premiership “would all end in tears’ in her new memoir.

In the first excerpt of her book, titled Ten Years to Save the West, the former prime minister describes the moment she learnt that her predecessor, Boris Johnson, was forced to resign.

She was in Bali at the time as foreign secretary and said: “As I walked along the beach in Indonesia I started crying.”

“Even Hugh [her husband], who predicted it would all end in tears, accepted that this was the moment I was expected to run and that if I didn’t, people would say I had bottled it,” Truss writes.

The book also details her first and last meeting with the late Queen Elizabeth II who died just two days into her premiership.

Of her historic meeting at Balmoral in Scotland in September 2022Truss says the 96-year-old the Queen “seemed to have grown frailer” since she had last been in the public eye.

“We spent around 20 minutes discussing politics. She was completely attuned to everything that was happening, as well as being typically sharp and witty,” she writes in Mail+.
