With Liz Truss’s recent move to Prime Minister and following Boris Johnson’s resignation, our voters explored the role of PM and what it entails, particularly given the current political climate. They considered concerns such as the cost of living crisis, war, the aftermath of the pandemic and whether being the Prime Minister throughout this presented itself as more of an opportunity or burden.
*With the gift of hindsight, we now know that Liz Truss’ tenure was significant in that it precipitated further crises on top of the already stacked agenda.
"I think it's a hard time to become prime minister because there is so much going on like the war in Ukraine, energy bills, climate change and so much more. Being prime minister must be hard if you need to think about all this stuff."
"The country is not in a good state right now, it needs help. Energy bills are rising and the queen has just died so good leadership is needed/it’s a mouldable time."
"Our tutor group thinks being in charge would be great - you could solve all the problems. School is more stressful than being Prime minister. Bring it on."
