Last Week Tonight’s John Oliver discussed the bleak state of the UK. The queen is dead, and the new Prime Minister was described as Margaret Thatcher if she were high on glue.
Oliver described Truss as Margaret Thatcher if she were high on glue, and later discussed the fact that UK energy prices are set to increase by eighty percent next month.
The Last Week Tonight host said, “I’m just going to say this and you may not like it, but it doesn’t make it any less true.
