Thom Yorke Weighs In On UK PM Resignation
Everyone’s got an opinion about UK Prime Minister Liz Truss resigning – even Radiohead’s Thom Yorke.
After Truss announced Thursday she would be stepping down just six weeks into her tenure, Yorke lashed out at the UK government in a tweet.
He wrote “bring down this UK government, they do not speak for us… They have no authority, no mandate, no clue…”
He dismissed the whole government as “cats in a bag tearing themselves to pieces while the country suffers in extreme distress.”
