Kevin Maguire catches up with Liz Truss's Lib Dem days

Liberal Democrat Voice had the story months ago; now the Mirror has caught up.

Kevin Maguire has discovered that the lord chancellor Liz Truss was one a young Liberal Democrat activist:
Teeny Truss was an activist in the yellow peril’s Youth & Student wing, attending the pictured July 1994 protest on Twyford Down against Conservative Home Secretary Michael Howard’s Criminal Justice Bill. 
Back then the In-Justice Secretary in Theresa May’s Government stood up for civil liberties by objecting to restrictions on raves and wider stop and search powers. 
An inept Minister accused these past few days of failing to defend judges from fascistic “enemies of the people” attacks after the High Court ruled the Article 50 clock to Brexit must be set ticking by Shock! Horror! a sovereign Parliament, rather than a Prime Minister exercising monarchical privileges, was President of Oxford University’s Lib Dems. 
Born into a Leftie family and dragged to CND rallies as a child, she eventually mutated into Tory Truss in 1996 by defecting to the Cons during her final year at university.
Holding the other end of the banner in the photo above is my friend and fellow Liberator collective member Kiron Reid.

Kiron went on to become a lecturer in Law and would make a much better lord chancellor than Liz Truss.

Come to that, so would Levi's monkey Mike.
