Not sure there is much "Learning English" to be learnt from someone like Truss. However you've got to admit one thing about the Tories: they are excellent at using women in top positions to shield themselves from criticism.

Thank you for the opportunity to learn more about the new pm.

I'm desperately sorry, anyway, that it seems there is only a second Boris Johnson now...


08.09.22 в 04:44

Thank you but can you explain the whole sentences? It is easy to understand what storm clouds gathering means if you think a little, i can’t understand what “narrow win” means instead

I learned the word "succeed" from "Live English Quiz - #63 Royalty" with Rob. The phrase from the quiz was: Queen Elizabeth II succeeded to the throne on 6 February 1952.
An idiom related to the verb "bag" is "in the bag."
I believe that an expression similar to "storm clouds gathering" is "perfect storm."
