Liz Truss being booted out of No 10 by her own MPs before Christmas is looking both increasingly probable and increasingly funny.

Traders are referring to Truss as “Daggers” - as in Dagenham, 2 stops past Barking…🤣🤣

BREAKING: The Labour party has announced it will renationalise rail. Now do water and energy, Keir, and you might actually become prime minister 😉

Fury from a Tory MP who says talk of no confidence letters going in is not misplaced. "My colleagues will rule nothing in and rule nothing out," they say. "There will come a time where people have to say ‘I know it’ll make us look chaotic, but we can’t go on like this."

I don’t think people understand- quite literally Truss and Kwarteng gave the City bankers the licence to print unlimited money by betting against their policies. It’s criminal and people still back the Tories.

It is becoming clear that the only sensible course of action is to call a general election. So you can be sure that is the very last thing I will do. #PoundSterling

I've written to @trussliz demanding an emergency recall of Parliament following the disastrous Tory budget. The UK economy is in crisis. All of us will pay the price as interest rates, mortgages and the cost of goods rise. MPs should be in parliament holding the govt to account

‘We’ve only been around for 19 days’ says @KwasiKwarteng. No you haven’t. You’ve been around 12 years - and now you’ve admitted you have failed catastrophically, it’s time for you to go

People are talking about Starmer going all New Labour and taking us back to the 90s. If only. I’d take low house prices and inflation, high wages, funded public services and a bustling arts scene over the abject fucking nightmare we have now.

In case you hadn't guessed, my government is really just an experiment to see how much people will tolerate before starting a revolution.

If you’re more upset about a guy going down a water slide with some prostitutes than you are about a sitting so-called “president” plotting a coup, inciting an insurrection and stealing a metric f*ck ton of classified documents, congratulations - you are an idiot and an asshole.

Hugely concerned that we're seeing so many children with shoes on their feet. By the time I'm done with this economy, children will be wearing rags and running around barefoot like in the good ol' days.

Do you think this gov't actually believes that trickle down economics will help ordinary people?

⚠️ It’s hard to overstate how serious this is. I could use various terms for this behaviour, but… just have a read: [from Sunday Times]

Ok… so who outside of Govt should be looking at this? @NCA_UK? @metpoliceuk? @UKSFO? Or are we just accepting that we live in a lawless and corrupt country now?

BREAKING: Kwasi Karteng explained to me today that he's only been chancellor for 19 days. This is perfectly true and in that time, he's crashed the markets, shorting the pound. That has to be some sort of record, right? x

hey, remember when Hunter Biden got caught stealing from his own fake foundation and was forbidden from ever operating a charity again and had to attend a class on "how not to steal"? oh wait, that wasn't Hunter Biden, that was Donald Trump's three congenitally criminal children

Yes, the pound has crashed so everything we import will cost more, but on the plus side all our mates with hedge funds have just made a fortune by betting against Sterling! So, swings and roundabouts..
