In an epic display of delusional grandeur, former Prime Minister Liz Truss has thrown her hat into the literary ring with her forthcoming magnum opus, “10 Years to Save the West.”
The manuscript, rumoured to include a riveting journey through Truss’s alarmingly brief tenure at the helm of the nation, ostensibly offers a roadmap to salvaging Western civilisation as we know it — a lofty goal for someone whose leadership managed to teeter the country’s economy on the brink of collapse within a brief 42-day period.
Many economists have been left scratching their heads as to what possible insight Truss can offer the world, given the only time she was ever given the power to make real change, she “completely f**ked it”.
Top economists are rallying in a united front, pleading with the former premier not to release the tome, which threatens to add “author” to her list of failed endeavors.
“Frankly, I am not sure if the West can handle being saved by Liz Truss. Her plans have traditionally harbour catastrophic impacts for almost everyone affected – barring a few disaster capitalists who seem to do quite well,” commented economist Simon Williams.
Truss appears unphased by the critics and naysayers, insisting that “economists are either leftist ideologues or simply don’t know what they’re talking about”.
As the publication date approaches, the nation watches with bated breath, anticipating the pearls of wisdom Truss intends to unveil.
The only certainty is that this literary endeavour embodies the epitome of Trussian political philosophy: audacity, devoid of self-awareness, wrapped in an enigma of baffling confidence.
Sources say that if the book flops and thousands of copies are pulped after being left unsold, Truss will release a follow-up entitled “10 years to save the publishing industry”.
