++BREAKING NEWS++ Liz Truss revealed as deep cover Liberal Democrat “sleeper” agent

Former Prime Minister Liz Truss has resigned from the Conservative Party after it was revealed that she has been acting secretly as an agent for the Liberal Democrats for thirty years.

In a bizarre series of events, the disclosure that an hereditary peerage was being lined up for Liberal Democrat President Mark Pack, sounded alarm bells which led to Ms Truss’ uncovering as a Liberal Democrat “sleeper”.

When journalists confronted Mark Pack outside his home, he could not avoid admitting the truth, saying:

I approached Ms Truss in the nineties at a Lib Dem conference in Brighton after her speech demanding the abolition of the monarchy and just before she called for an end to money at a fringe meeting. I suggested that the Tories would welcome her and that she could do great damage to their party in the future. In essence I asked her to be a secret agent for us. She agreed and I was her handler until a year ago.

Liz Truss commented:

At last the truth is out and I can be what I always wanted to be: a Liberal Democrat. But I am proud of the work I have done to reveal the true nature of the Conservative Party.

Dr Pack said that Ms Truss switched off contact with him, or “went dark”, in August 2022, just before the disastrous mini-budget, and “went rogue”:

She actually did a lot more damage than we wanted. She was supposed to crash the Conservative party – not the whole United Kingdom.

That Ms Truss was a sleeper agent for the party has been the subject of speculation for some time. In fact, Lib Dem peer Martin Thomas said so out loud on this site back in 2016. Tim Farron claimed it on Twitter so often that we started to wonder if maybe he wasn’t joking after all. Neil Fawcett’s media interviews criticising Truss were seen by some as protesting too much by someone whose skill set is perfect for the role of handler.

It is understood that Mack Pack’s contact with Ms Truss over the years was controlled by a secret Liberal Democrat committee, the acronym for which has been withheld on grounds of taste.

The Lib Dem Parliamentary party has voluntarily referred itself to the All Party Regulatory Inquiry into Legislation For Organisational Operatives Licensing.

    Heh heh. Perchance it is April Fool’s day? Meantime, just putting the finishing touches to the Christmas tree..😂😂

    This is outrageous. She can’t be let back into the party without a vote at Conference

  • Kevin Mahoney 1st Apr '23 - 7:59am

    Don’t need to check my calendar now to see if it’s April 1st. Very amusing

  • You could not make it up. Just shows the levels of corruption in politics today.

  • Great story! Remembering it’s April 1st. It madde me laugh!!!

    An elected President who is also a Lord would have been a novelty.

  • Steve Trevethan 1st Apr '23 - 8:25am

    Might the date be the first of April?

    Of course, Liz Truss was not the first attempt to plant a sleeper agent within another party but was clearly the most successful. The previous attempt of note was Peter Hain – former president of the Young Liberals – trying to work within the Labour Party, though his attempt to win the Deputy Leadership of the Labour Party in 2007 failed miserably.

    Don’t panic, she’ll be gone by midday.

    This would make a great film. Now who could play Liz Truss?

  • Mick Taylor 1st Apr '23 - 9:03am

    I can’t believe this is a one way street.
    Who is the Tory sleeper in the Lib Dems? We must be told.

  • What’s the date again?

  • Yeovil Yokel 1st Apr '23 - 9:08am

    “That. Is. A. Disgrace!”

  • Neil Fawcett 1st Apr '23 - 9:25am

    I thought my interviews were quite understated 😉

    I got paid for my article about Liz in the i the other day, which makes me one of the very few people who ended up better off as a result of her brief premiership.

    April 1st

    Is this the April Fool then or is it real? Sometimes with the Tory Party these days I don’t know what’s what. What in the past might have been an April Fool turns out to be real. So what is it?

    I thought everybody knew. In Wales, it was Lembit Opik and in the rest of the country Nick from Facebook now Meta.

    Biographical analysis reveals stunning similarities in the life of Liz Truss and Winston Churchill. History repeating itself?

    Very good!

    It’s a great shame that really great and creative message didn’t make it to the national news media.

  • Hollywood beckons for the film rights!
