Ms Truss, 47, will officially replace Boris Johnson as Prime Minister on Tuesday. In the race for leadership, she presented herself as a tax-privileged libertarian who would shrink the British state and revitalize an ailing economy, much like Britain’s first woman prime minister. Margaret Thatcherdid in the 1980s.
