After being PM for just 44 days, Liz Truss is believed to be receiving a hefty severance package of nearly £19,000 (over $22,000). However, it appears British taxpayers don’t think she should be entitled to a payment of £115,000 a year – a public service expense allowance (PDCA) typically claimed by former prime ministers. According to a poll by Redfield & Wilton Strategies, 84% think she should not receive the benefit, while only 9% think the opposite, and 7% are undecided on the issue. The survey contacted 1,500 eligible UK voters online on October 25 and 26 and was weighted to represent the entire population. Meanwhile, the opposition also said Truss should reject the allowance because she “didn’t earn the right” to claim the sum. The PDCA covers secretarial costs and official commitments, but politicians must provide valid proof of expenditure for the funds.

Truss, who passed the job to ex-Chancellor Rishi Sunak, became the shortest PM in British history, and her approval rating was lower than the lowest results posted by Boris Johnson – despite the fact that his cabinet has been hit by a series of scandals.

After being PM for just 44 days, Liz Truss is believed to be receiving a hefty severance package of nearly £19,000 (over $22,000). However, it appears British taxpayers don’t think she should be entitled to a payment of £115,000 a year – a public service expense allowance (PDCA) typically claimed by former prime ministers.

According to a poll by Redfield & Wilton Strategies, 84% think she should not receive the benefit, while only 9% think the opposite and 7% are undecided on the issue. The survey contacted 1,500 eligible UK voters online on October 25 and 26 and was weighted to represent the entire population.

Meanwhile, the opposition also said Truss should reject the award because she “didn’t earn the right” to claim the sum.

The PDCA covers secretarial costs and official commitments, but politicians must provide valid proof of expenditure for the funds.
