Senior politician goes viral for saying 'learn proper names for animals'

Liz Truss

A senior Conservative politician has become the centre of Twitter jokes over part of her speech at her party's conference.

Liz Truss has been ridiculed for saying that all children will "learn the proper names for animals and trees".

The Environment Secretary speech at conference went viral last time.

Then she said in what was described as a dramatic voice that "we import two-thirds of our cheese. That. Is. A. Disgrace."

She was also mocked last time when she grinned and told delegates that "in December I'll be in Beijing, opening up pork markets."

The reaction on Twitter as you would expect.

That was a reference to chicken and mushroom if your Latin is not as good as Peter's.

Some people decided to get a bit more surreal in their jokes.

The comments have come thick and fast for the Environment Secretary and some people have got behind her... if only because they seem to really like what is becoming an annual event at conference.
