In what is the latest in memorable moments from a gruelling Tory leadership contest, a Liz Truss meme has gone viral for a strange moment in an old speech where the potential PM in waiting made a promise about pork.
Politicians, famously known for their relatability and their collectively strong sense of humour, are often prone to verbal gaffes and strange moments.
Ed Miliband’s infamous “tough enough” quote and Boris Johnson’s “Them’s the breaks” remark in his resignation speech are just two examples of times where prolific politicians weren’t quite on the same page as us.
Now, the Twitter meme spotlight has turned to Tory leader hopeful Liz Truss. It features footage of her making a pork-based promise.
So, let’s see what the internet is saying about Lizz Truss.

So, what’s the story with Liz Truss and pork?
Well, the clip that’s got everyone talking comes from Truss’ speech at the 2014 Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham.
Truss was the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs under David Cameron’s government at the time. She was giving a speech to the conference goers about the UK’s food industries.
While looking rather enthusiastic, Truss pauses as the crowd applauds her previous remarks.
She goes to speak, before briefly pausing again, and then hits the crowd with the now iconic line:
“In December, I’ll be in Beijing, opening up new pork markets!”
While a rather dull comment without context, the clip must be seen to be fully understood. Truss’ pork remark is immediately followed by an ear-to-ear grin, accompanied by a deep stare down the camera lens.
Truss’ delight in her pork comments, combined with a slight pause before the audience begins to applaud, makes for a ‘Thick of it’ esque moment, which is once again doing the rounds online.
Liz Truss Pork meme first went viral in 2015
While Liz Truss is in the news more nowadays than in 2015 due to the leadership contest, this isn’t actually the first time the clip has gone viral.
Back in 2015, when Truss was appointed Foreign Secretary, everyone was loving the Lizz Truss pork meme:

The new 2022 Liz Truss memes
And in 2022, Twitter users have gotten even more creative with the Liz Truss pork memes.
I suspect this one may be sarcastic:
Liz Truss’ pork speech is utterly captivating and inspiring and will be considered by future generations to be as good, if not better, than Martin Luther King’s ‘I have a Dream’ speech. pic.twitter.com/4vlZl0d3RZ— Gus The Fox (@GusTheFox) July 14, 2022
If you understand this joke, you definitely spend too much time on Twitter (myself included):
