Liz Truss has emerged as the unlikely source of a musical tribute to the late Sinead O'Connor. The former PM has penned a version of the Irish singer's classic hit Nothing Compares 2 U - with a few amendments of her own.
A spokes-lettuce said 'As soon as Liz heard that Sinead O'Connor had died, she got straight to work on a cover of the song. People might say her version is a bit egotistical, but that is a disgrace.'
NewsBiscuit was given exclusive access to Truss's rendition of the song after bribing the former premier with pork and cheese imports.
'It’s been seven hours and 308 days,
Since I trashed the economy,
I caused market jitters and a run on the pound,
Not to mention a £30billion spree.
Since I’ve been gone, I can do whatever I want,
I can fleece whoever I name,
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant,
But nothing, I said nothing, will ever make me feel shame.
Cause nothing compares. Nothing compares. To me.
I’ve been so lonely being out of the limelight,
Like a bird without a song,
But there are no lonely tears falling,
Tell me, why do people still think I went wrong?
I went to Kwasi Kwarteng, and guess what he told me, guess what he told me?
He said "Girl, you better try to make funds outta nothing, it grows on trees!"
Now he's history...
Cause nothing compares. Nothing compares. To me.'
