The Govern-ment has robust systems to protectagainst cyber threats. “That includes regular securitybriefings for ministers and advice onprotecting personal data and miti-gating cyber threats.”Meanwhile, it was also claimedlast night that during her final daysin No10, Ms Truss became obsessedwith the weather in case Putindetonated a nuclear bomb overthe Black Sea — and caused aradioactive cloud to head for Britain.A source said: “Liz was obsessedwith the prevailing wind.”
