Truss humiliates Starmer after labelling him a “plastic patriot” and promises to embody the ‘Lionesses’ spirit. 

As the battle for the Tory leadership intensifies, Liz Truss has denounced Keir Starmer as a “plastic patriot” and pledged to “channel the spirit of our Lionesses,” as she battles to become the next leader of the Conservative party and PM of the UK.

She promised to use the “spirit of our Lionesses” to win a “great victory” for Great Britain if she is elected Prime Minister in a heated address at the Tory hustings in Exeter. She also called Keir Starmer, the leader of the Labour Party, a “plastic patriot.”

She said: “That’s what we can do as we unlock our potential against the plastic patriot Keir Starmer. That is what we can do from the Conservative party.”

“People who voted Conservative – from the Blue Wall to the Red Wall to Cornwall – they voted Conservative because they wanted Conservative policies not because they wanted higher taxes, not because they wanted Labour light.”

“They voted for us because they believe in our values.”
