Liz Truss will have to solve a lot of problems created by Boris Johnson

Liz Truss will have to solve a lot of problems created by Boris Johnson

Across England, businesses are warning that they will not be able to survive the winter without government support, which creates enormous difficulties for the new prime minister of the state, Liz Truss.

For a couple of months, London suffered a “leadership vacuum” as the country sank into a crisis caused by rising electricity costs. But, it is clarified that this is not the only problem Liz will face.

With former Prime Minister Boris Johnson announcing he will step down in July, growth prospects have worsened. Thus, annual inflation exceeded 10 percent, and the rise in the cost of living forced hundreds of thousands of workers to go on strike. Moreover, the British pound showed the worst ratio since the Brexit referendum.

“It’s just one hit after another. I’m afraid I can’t find any good news,” said Martin McTag, head of the UK Small Business Federation.
