6 The UK The new prime minister of the UK could be Larry the Cat. The king of the country, Charles the Third, has already «addressed» the proposal to take the post to the chief mouser of the British government. The fluffy resident of the Downing Street reported about it on his social network account. Such humorous post was made after the big statement from Liz Truss. On 20th of October she announced her decision to retire. She stayed in office for merely 44 days. Liz Truss will remain in her position until a successor is named. She added that the election of a new leader of the Conservatives, and the country, will be held on the next week. The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, stated regarding this event that Liz Truss will be remembered only for her helmet on the tank, catastrophic illiteracy, and the fact that Queen Elizabeth the Second died immediately after the audience with Liz Truss. The rule of Liz Truss caused a discontent among the UK population due to the tax reforms. This policy led to a collapse in the stock and bond markets, due to which the British pound fell to a record low.
