Liz Truss resigned as UK Prime Minister this week after just 45 days in office. The event has sparked a meme fest on the internet where many have taken the opportunity to have some fun. Industrialist Anand Mahindra also shared a meme that he says “has an interesting message.”
The video clip, uploaded to Twitter by the chairman of the Mahindra Group, shows a man ordering food from a takeaway restaurant. He then turns to the left to ask his fellow passenger, “What do you want?” As the camera pans, we see a clip of Liz Truss’ resignation speech on top of the passenger seat, where she seems to be thinking of an answer.
“The social media brutality with Liz Truss continues unabated. But this meme also has an interesting message: People know that not all decisions are perfect, but they prefer that their leaders (including corporate CEOs) do not fall prey to ‘analysis paralysis’ but are decisive!” Mr Mahindra wrote.

The post drew fascinating responses from Twitter users.
“But it’s also important to sometimes let more facts become clear before you make a decision. Sometimes not making a decision is a decision. But in this case, there was a clear lack of leadership skills. To be a leader, you have to listen even to critics. You learn things,” wrote one user.

Another user shared his view, writing, “A good leader listens to good advice before making a decision…she didn’t.”

Liz Truss stepped down on October 20 to become the UK’s shortest-serving Prime Minister. She will remain in office until the ruling Conservative Party elects its new leader, which is expected to happen next week. She had succeeded Boris Johnson.
