After Prime Minister Liz Truss’s reading at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, The Grand Tour host Jeremy Clarkson criticized her, saying that her delivery was “Like a Dalek.” Jeremy elaborated, saying that other leaders read with “Feeling,” but Truss made him sound like a child of six.
After hearing the Prime Minister speak for the first time at his funeral, Clarkson’s Farm host said he sounded like “A six-year-old who’d been told to read John Donne poetry out in class.”
He went on to say, “It sounded like it was being read by someone who didn’t know what the words meant.
A person with a stone-like intellect.
When asked about the second reading at the Queen’s funeral, Jeremy Clarkson said it sounded “more wooden than the altar.”
As she sat down to rest, she probably felt satisfied with her performance.
She hadn’t mixed up the order of the words or used the word “vagina” by accident.
“However, what you say is more important than what you say. And what she said was entirely incorrect. It was unbelievable to me.
The post office, so it seemed, was going to be closing in about 15 minutes. Her voice was Like a Dalek.
Truss was among the many people who mourned the death of Queen Elizabeth by delivering a speech outside No. 10 Downing Street:
She concluded her speech by saying, “With the passing of the second Elizabethan age, we usher in a new era in the magnificent history of our great country, exactly as Her Majesty would have wished by saying the words… God save the King.”
