London: Embattled British Prime Minister Liz Truss on Monday has apologised for going “too far and too fast” with tax reforms. Despite many setbacks, she has decided to continue in the leadership post.
“I accept my responsibility and apologise for the mistakes,” she said in an interview. But she said she was “fully committed to serving the country”
British Prime Minister Liz Truss has apologised for the turmoil in the first few weeks of her leadership. During this time, some decisions were withdrawn in a very dramatic way in British politics. During this time, Truss’s new finance minister Jeremy Hunt overturned her entire tax cut agenda.
For the first time, Truss admitted on Monday night that mistakes had been made, but insisted she was not going anywhere and would lead the Conservative Party in the next general election.
As rebel voices grew louder within her party in recent days, she said she was focusing on her economic growth mission “for the good of the British people”.
“I believe we made mistakes. I’m sorry for those mistakes, but I’ve corrected those mistakes.”
“I have appointed a new finance minister. We have restored economic stability and fiscal discipline. Now whatever I want to do for the public, that work is being carried forward. We have been elected on the 2019 manifesto, and I want to move forward and fulfil that,” she said.
She said she was “firm” because she was chosen to work for the country.
