"What I found out when I got into No. 10 is, I thought that if I got to the top of the tree, I would be able to implement those conservative policies... And what I discovered was that I was not holding the levers. The levers were held by the Bank of England, by the Office of Budget Responsibility, they weren't held by the Prime Minister or the Chancellor..."Truss goes on to point out the obvious problem with this: you can sack the Prime Minister, but you can't sack the BOE officials who hold the levers of power. Around the same time of this revelation, Glenn Beck dropped a similar clue. In his interview with Tucker Carlson published on 21 February 2024 he shared a story of his encounter with George W. Bush:
I thought of something George Bush told me in the Oval Office. I was asking about the policies and how they were going to change, and he said, "Glenn, don't worry, whoever sits behind this desk, in that chair, is going to have the same advice given by the same advisors and they'll realize, the President's hands are tied." I walked out of that room horrified... Why do we even have elections?"What G. W. Bush had revealed to Beck and what Liz Truss discovered when she got to the top of the tree, has been the defining feature behind our "democracies" for a very long time. Former British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli said in 1844 that, "The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes." Sir William Pitt, Prime Minister in 1770 said that, "There is something behind the throne greater than the King himself."
