Liz Truss Biography, Wiki

Liz Truss was born on 26 July 1975 in Oxford, England, to John Kenneth and Priscilla Mary Truss. She was raised in a left-wing household: her father was a professor of pure mathematics at the University of Leeds, while her mother was a nurse, teacher, and member of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. Truss has described both as being “to the left of Labour”. When Truss later ran for election to Parliament, her mother agreed to campaign for her while her father declined to do so.

The family moved to Scotland when she was four years old. Truss attended West Primary School in Paisley, Scotland, followed by Roundhay School, a comprehensive school in north-east Leeds. She lived in Canada for a year, and contrasts the competitive attitude in schooling there with the “trendy” education she received in Leeds. She read Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Merton College, Oxford.

Truss was President of Oxford University Liberal Democrats and a member of the national executive committee of its youth and student wing. She also expressed republican sentiments at the 1994 Liberal Democrats conference. Truss joined the Conservative Party in 1996.
