'Some people have sex or drugs – but I was a Lib Dem' says Truss at Eastbourne hustings


Share post:

Ms Truss was the President of Oxford Union Liberal Democrats when she was a student at Merton College, and was a member of the national executive committee of Liberal Democrat Youth and Students.

She joined the Conservative Party in 1996, aged 21.

As well as being a republican, she also backed the legalisation of cannabis, and campaigned against the Criminal Justice Bill, primarily aimed at curbing illegal raves and free parties.

Minutes before her reference to her Lib Dem past, Ms Truss was interrupted by five protesters believed to be from the Green New Deal Rising group, who heckled her over climate change and energy bills and shouted “Shame on you”.
