Liz Truss reveals Geri Horner told her ‘go for it’ at Lionesses match amid leadership contest after Spice Girls star posed with Nadine Dorries
Geri Horner appears to be backing Liz Truss in the leadership contest after reportedly giving the candidate warm words of support. The Spice Girls singer is already facing backlash after photos were shared of her hugging Tory minister Nadine Dorries at the Lionesses’ historic match last night, which saw the women’s England football team bring home the trophy in the Euro 2022 final against Germany. Many of Geri’s fans quickly expressed their disappointment that the Wannabe singer would align herself with the Conservative Party. However, Ms Dorries wasn’t the only Tory MP that Geri was seen mingling with as a photo has also emerged of the popstar hugging Ms Truss while posing for a photo at Wembley Stadium. Ms Truss, who is Foreign Secretary, is currently going up against former Chancellor Rishi Sunak in the battle for Prime Minister after Boris Johnson resigned last month. Not only was Geri happy to pose for a photo with the candidate, but Ms Truss has also revealed the encouraging words she received from the pop icon. ‘She said “go for it”, she was very positive,’ the minister told Mail Plus. It comes after Ms Dorries shared the photos of her and Geri giving each other a tight squeeze in the stands, with the caption: ‘Girl power radiating from Wembley tonight.’ The post didn’t go down well with some of Geri’s fans, with one tweeting: ‘Geri has reached peak Tory. V upsetting,’ while another commented: ‘Finding out ginger Geri Halliwell Spice is a massive Tory , has ruined my day.’Another Twitter user weighed in: ‘Geri Halliwell actively embracing a woman who voted against gay marriage, who was only recently demonising the trans community, is 100% not shocking.

Deborah Meaden rages at Sunak and Truss' response to climate change 'They have no idea!'
Climate change was pretty weak from both of them," she declared after watching one of the pair's televised debates.She added: "They clearly have no idea of the scale…."Rishi Sunak has already been slammed for "economic illiteracy" over the issue.In previous government debates, he consistently voted against policies aimed at minimising the perils of climate change and global warming.And just before the pandemic began, he dismissed the idea of a proposal to cut almost all transport emissions by 2030.Back in 2016, he chose not to vote in favour of lowering the maximum carbon emissions for new homes.Meanwhile, he even stood against plans for a windfall tax against oil and gas companies.However he did create incentives for those who installed eco-friendly insulation in their homes, and cut VAT for those who chose to install solar panels on their homes.Plus he also grabbed attention when his Budget Statement announced he would like to divert £1 billion to a Net Zero innovation fund.When asked what members of the public could do in the fight against climate change, Mr Sunak simply suggested recycling - a technique that many have argued would not go far enough.Meanwhile Liz Truss was keen to let the world know that she had been an eco-warrior "before it was fashionable"."I was a teenage eco warrior campaigning against damage to the ozone layer," the leadership candidate proudly announced.However, some of her critics believe her policy ideas on the matter have barely progressed since those teenage years.She previously held the position of Environment Secretary, but during that time, she cut subsidies for wind farms and dismissed Michael Gove's ideas for cutting air pollution.Ms Truss also announced in March that she would

Boris Johnson looked very different during his first speech as Prime Minister
Boris Johnson has stepped down as Conservative Party leader after a string of mass resignations made his already precarious position unsustainable.Addressing the public today, the Prime Minister looked sullen and tired as he expressed sadness at giving up "the best job in the world".Wearing a navy blue suit and patterned tie, he revealed plans to serve as PM until a new successor is brought in the autumn.READ MORE: Who will replace Boris Johnson as Prime Minister? Next PM odds and most likely successorIt's a stark contrast to BoJo's first speech as PM back on July 24, 2019.Less than three years ago, Johnson wore a similar smart suit, crisp white shirt and blue tie as he promised to "restore trust in democracy" and "prepare for a post-Brexit future".His signature blonde locks weren't as wild as they looked today, nor did he have dark circles under his eyes.BoJo had plenty of obstacles to deal with during his two years and 348 days in charge of the nation – from the pandemic to Partygate.But it was Johnson's decision to promote ally Chris Pincher to deputy chief whip that proved the final nail in the coffin.The PM approved the appointment despite widespread allegations of inappropriate behaviour.Johnson claimed he was unaware of the complaints but was accused of dishonesty – as it was shown he was told about allegations numerous times.
