Truss says in leaked audio British workers need 'more graft'

Leaked audio reveals British Foreign Secretary and Tory leadership candidate Liz Truss (pictured) said British workers needed "more graft" while adding that they lacked the "skill and application" of foreign rivals, The Guardian reported on Tuesday.

According to the report, Truss also compared Londoners to the rest of the country, noting that the difference was "partly a mindset or attitude thing."

The remarks were made when Truss was chief secretary to the Treasury. In the recording, she hinted that there seemed to be little willingness to shift the working culture to make the UK more prosperous. Truss has put patriotism at the center of the current campaign for party leadership.
