This is big! Labour members just overwhelmingly backed PR πŸ‘πŸ‘ Great news - a real sea change! Yet @Keir_Starmer has his fingers in his ears. People are crying out for fresh, progressive politics where votes count & voices are heard. And it’s coming, whether leaders agree or not

It is no good ministers going off to their Conference next week, quaffing champagne while the country is in crisis. Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng need to get back to their offices and sort this mess out.

Why do the BBC have Tom Harwood on? He works for GBNews. They don’t invite Beth Rigby on to Politics Live do they?

Liz Truss completely failed to reassure people today who are worried sick about the impact of this budget on their mortgages, pensions and bills. She is digging in with her completely out of touch approach that only benefits the very wealthiest while the vast majority suffer.

Waspish line from @AngelaRayner - 'Liz Truss has finally broken her long painful silence with a series of short painful silences.'

The FULL hour of Liz Truss’s local radio interviews is now in one place. Enjoy in all their glory. This media round will be studied by MPs and students for years to come. bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p0d3fl…

In many ways the current economic crisis, triggered by Liz Truss' government, is the logical end point to Brexit. bylinetimes.com/2022/09/29/c…

Asking Truss to change course is as futile as asking Bolsonaro to stop burning the Amazon, or asking Putin to stop tormenting Ukraine. She has to go.

Conservative MPs tell me Liz Truss' economic plans are "toxic" and risk pushing the government and country to disaster. Big Commons' rebellion predicted if she doesn't quickly change course. bylinetimes.com/2022/09/29/c…

Local radio presenters: "You've fucked the economy, undermined the Bank of England, made the rich MUCH richer & the poor poorer, you're a dangerous ideological extremist liar & have no fucking clue what you're doing or saying." Liz Truss: "I have to do what I believe is right."

"Once again Truss has revealed her contempt for rural communities. Their concerns: over water pollution, climate change, and the destruction of their local countryside are viewed as irrelevant by the Prime Minister." @Wera_Hobhouse

Liz Truss went on local radio so she wouldn't be heard floundering in front of a national audience. She's a coward, pretending not to be hiding... by hiding.

In a world in crisis, only one leader has decided to take up economic skydiving without a reserve chute in a suit full of nails in a Dirty Sanchez stunt to wow the faithful at some shitty party conference.
