Badenoch is on the right of the Conservative Party.
LONDON — New U.K. Prime Minister Liz Truss on Tuesday named Conservative Brexiteer Kemi Badenoch as the new British trade chief.
Badenoch, who ran in the leadership contest against Truss, was a minister at the U.K.’s leveling-up department until she joined dozens of colleagues in resigning from Boris Johnson’s government in July over his handling of a number of scandals.
She was previously an equalities minister and has also served as a junior minister in the Treasury.
Badenoch is seen as being on the right of the party, and stood on an “anti-woke” ticket during the contest, while also arguing for the state to be slimmed down.
COMMENTS: Kemi Adeosun was fired for political reason and replaced by a dullard. Nepotism and cronyism is killing the country, to a place of no return; almost!
