In despair and angry. EU makes sense economically and socially. ExTory, they don’t act in national interest. Sailing makes self belief and respect for nature.

Frightening thread.
This time, four months ago, It was a normal day. I was at my office getting a booklet made for each of my coworkers that would show their growth in their skills to help get them raises. 2 hours from then, I’d get a call that would shatter my world. My wife called, screaming

Totally agree. Sanity for whole of UK
Grim news. There probably would not have been a Brexit referendum but for FPTP. But PR is ‘not a priority’ for Starmer. In my opinion, it’s the one thing that might set the UK on a healthier, saner long term path. theguardian.com/politics/202…

Hey Kwasi, riddle me this. If Germany and France have higher corporation tax rates and don't give their bankers uncapped bonuses how come they have stronger economies and attract more foreign investment? @KwasiKwarteng #ToryCorruption #ToryCriminals

Labour government of 1945 made my grandparents & parents better off, the 1997 Labour Government meant my children were better off still. My family's worst fortunes like the spiralling interest rates of the 1980s and the rising costs now have always made my family & friends poorer

I saw a homeless guy and I felt bad for him. So I did what I think any of us would do - drove to a nearby affluent area, found the biggest, nicest house and put a tenner through their letter box. You mark my words, before long that money will trickle down to the homeless guy.

I studied economics at the same Oxford college as Liz Truss and don't recall anyone there giving the remotest credence to trickle down economics. We all know it's a lie. We knew then and we know now.

Thanks another excellent thread
The most acute comment I saw about yesterday's 'budget' was that those supporting free markets don't understand them. But in most of the commentary, I'm not sure most people understand the 2020s economy, and therefore the likely implications of yesterday... yep, a thread... 1/

Excellent thread that exposes the porosity of the #ToryCorruption ideology. People should look around the world and analysis why other countries with higher taxes have good infrastructure health care social care and higher standard of living. Maybe PR has something to do with it
The thing is ... I've run a company. Tax cuts are NOWHERE NEAR as important as a stable, strategic plan. Customers who feel confident to spend. Education that provides skills. Trading laws you can predict. Knowing more or less what the currency will be worth in 6 months. 🧵

Liz TRUSS and Kwasi KWARTENG were clearly put in office to crash the economy and hand over the wreckage to LABOUR.

The most likely outcome of the next general election is neither a Tory or Labour win. Think how different the conversation would be if we all absorbed this reality and tried our best to vote for it. #GetPRDone

629,000 people in the UK earn £150k+. @mrjamesob quipped these are the people #Kwarteng decided need the most help. I think it's worse. He decided they *deserve* the most help. Bc they are winners. Successful. Valuable. Whereas the rest of the country is...well...the opposite.

That (long predicted) full circle return to the 'sick man of Europe'...
How long before the IMF are called in? My bet, middle of next year, shortly after Kwarteng 's resignation and the Tories' next leadership contest

Until the public know who is behind BREXIT, and why we've been attacked by our own leaders, we will not be able to move forward as a country. Most people won't like the answers... RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISM, FASCISM / NAZISM and MONARCHY will all be playing important roles.

Good morning everyone 😃 They lied to us all repeatedly. They’re lying to us now. They will continue to lie to us until our country as we know it has changed beyond recognition. The ERG Cons need to be held to account. Right here, right now #ToriesOut77

This sounds like a damn fine piece of work to me. At a time so many people feel politics Is broken, we need big radical change to try to fix it. theguardian.com/politics/202…
