One person mentioned Truss’ cheese and pork speech at a Conservative conference in 2014: “All I know is there’s a speech she’s giving about the importance of apples …the fruit…and I can’t go beyond that.”
In her speech, Liz Truss explained to the audience just how much the UK imports, describing with passion her dismay at the numbers.
She said: “I want to see us eat more British food here in Britain. Currently, we import two-thirds of all our apples. We import nine-tenths of all our pears.
“We import two-thirds of our cheese. It’s a shame. From apples that fell on Isaac Newton’s head to nursery rhyme orchards, this fruit has always been a part of Britain.
Another similarly wrote: “She gets very very mad at the cheese. He is a very serious person.
“She’s a real cheese lover,” one Twitter user also joked.
One mentioned Liz Truss’ superfan status for Taylor Swift, after the politician slipped in the lyrics of a song during a debate in the House of Commons.

On March 8, 2020, which is International Women’s Day, Truss, as Minister for Women and Equalities at the time, quoted Swift’s song The Man: “It’s your talent ideas and your character that matter, nothing else.”
“In the words of the brilliant Taylor Swift in her new song, women aren’t left to ‘run as fast as they can, wondering if they’d get there any faster if they were a man.’
One Twitter user said in response to Chrissy’s tweet: “If Margaret Thatcher was a swiftie.”
Another compared Liz to her predecessor, writing ‘Boris Johnson with a bob’, with another user quickly adding: ‘Bobis Johnson’.
Referring to US President Donald Trump, one user described: “Trump but female and not as orange.”
One person said: ‘Cruella DeVille. Without the Dalmatians.
And one of them even said, “Chrissy, you don’t wanna know”
