'Missing' Liz Truss told to 'come out of hiding' over fears she'll 'crash the economy'
Liz Truss has been told to “come out of hiding” after remaining silent while the UK's economy tanks beyond belief.Less than one week after her Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng announced a budget which the entire world has seemingly ridiculed and made the markets fall in dramatic fashion, PM Truss has not said a word.The budget-not-budget, announced last Friday, contained tax cuts upon tax cuts, for both the uber rich and those most in need – and it's been reported they were largely unfunded.
