Liz Truss’s ‘growth, growth, growth’ speech heckled by protesters

Liz truss's 'growth, growth, growth' speech heckled by protesters

Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Liz Truss’s ‘growth, growth, growth’ speech heckled by protesters” – below is their description.

Liz Truss mentioned ‘growth’ 29 times in her relatively short keynote speech at the Conservative party conference in Birmingham on Wednesday. In her first conference speech as prime minister, Truss spoke against an ‘anti-growth coalition’, citing the Liberal Democrats, the Labour party and Extinction Rebellion among others.

Greenpeace protesters briefly interrupted Truss, holding up a sign that read ‘who voted for this?’. Greenpeace UK later said it had identified at least seven areas across environmental protection, climate action, workers’ rights and tackling inequality where policies considered by Truss’s cabinet contradicted the 2019 Conservative election manifesto
