This Liz Truss parody hilariously nails her world-beating cringeworthiness
The Tory leadership race that came along to ruin all our practically politics-free summers limps on, with favourite Liz Truss and underdog Rishi Sunak conducting TV debates and a round of hustings across the country.
So exciting! Liz Truss is visiting Brexit-on-Sea this morning, to hold a hustings at the Sunlit Uplands care home. She'll be presented with the Order of the Pork Sword, our highest civic honour, and a hamper of cheese, made locally at Bell End Farm.

Truss would "cause misery to ordinary people" – Sunak
Sunak would "crash the economy" – Truss

The candidates have been thrashing out the big questions –
Should taxes go up or down?
Who would send the most asylum seekers to Rwanda?
Which candidate had the least-privileged backgound?
Sunak wants you to know his mum ran a pharmacy. Truss wants you to know that she went to a state school.
Why? Well, because they think it makes them sound "normal".
No mention of their time at Oxford doing PPE or their own business careers.

Liz Truss went to such an appalling school that she got into Oxford from it

Rishi Sunak repeatedly suggesting his childhood was hard-up grates a bit. The same Winchester student and Oxfordian who said: "I have friends who are aristocrats, I have friends who are upper class, I have friends who are working class… well, not working class"

If you’ve watched any of Liz Truss’ performances as a leadership candidate, as Foreign Secretory, or even back when she was Secretary of state for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, emoting about cheese and pork markets, you’ll know that actor and writer Matilda Thorpe has nailed her deer-in-the-headlights delivery.

I changed my politics. I changed my view on Brexit, and I’ve changed my voice – and look where that’s got me.

It looks like somebody else should be getting their name on the ballot sheet.
