'The bitter end': British newspapers react to the resignation of Liz Truss

Truss confirmed her resignation during a statement outside Downing Street yesterday.

YESTERDAY, LIZ TRUSS resigned as British Prime Minister after just 44 days in office. 

In a statement outside Number 10 Downing Street, she said she recognised she “cannot deliver the mandate” which Conservative Party members gave her a little over six weeks ago when she replaced Boris Johnson.

She will remain as prime minister until her replacement is chosen next Friday. 

So, after another dramatic day in British politics, let’s take a look at how the UK newspapers reacted to the new of Truss’ departure. 

The i and the Financial Times lead on the shortest premiership stint in Downing Street’s history.

The Metro, meanwhile, dubs Truss “the worst PM we’ve ever had”.

The Guardian calls Truss’ resignatiomn “the bitter end”.

In their front pages, the Independent and the Daily Mirror push for a general election.

Yesterday, it was reported in some UK newspapers that former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to stand for leadership. 

The Daily Telegraph, The Sun and the Daily Express report on a speculated BoJo comeback.

The Daily Mail adds the former Prime Minister will be up against Rishi Sunak in a competition for the top job.

And the Daily Star says its lettuce has outlasted “Liz”.
