The voters of the UK need to be given a say on the future of the country. We’re calling for a general election now.

The short-lived premiership of Liz Truss was a shambles - a period of time in which the UK’s status on the world stage took a hammering.

But more importantly, we’re all paying the price now. Mortgages - closely followed by rent - have risen substantially, during a cost of living and energy crisis that was already hitting the country hard.

Liz Truss took the government in a radical new direction from the moment she took office - unfortunately for the rest of us, her rash ambition to transform the UK into a low-tax, high-growth nation without doing any of the necessary preparations crashed the economy.

The mini-budget was a disaster of her making, and one which she had no mandate for. Now the Conservatives are hoping to sweep it all under the carpet, to pin it on one person, and move on.

That’s after just 357 people - Tory MPs - were able to vote in the contest.

We at NationalWorld believe that the UK cannot afford to lurch from one crisis to another. The basis of a democracy is that it is the people who give politicians their legitimacy.

It’s time for a reset. It’s time for the voters to be given their say on what happens next, and who they trust to run the country.

We are calling for a general election now - not in 2023, 2024 or even January 2025.
