Thanks to this government, hundreds of thousands of people are now at risk of losing their job, their home, their pension, or even all three

Ok, how do we get them out then? National strike? Civil disobedience? Because we CANNOT allow Truss to remain in number 10. We CANNOT wait two years for en election. Enough really is enough.

This is really important. @trussliz please note, you鈥檙e not telling the truth
Pls share to stop confusion. THERE IS NO 拢2,500 CAP ON ENERGY BILLS. Instead the new 1 Oct guarantee, like the old caps, limits - Daily charge (28p gas, 46p elec) - & Unit rates (10p/kWh gas, 34p/kWh elec) So use more, pay more. 拢2,500 is just what someone with avg use'd pay

The Tory government has taken a wrecking ball to the economy - and @trussliz has shown she's reckless, clueless and completely out of touch. The PM must recall Parliament and bring forward an emergency statement reversing her disastrous budget - or step aside so someone else can

People in Scotland are getting a very clear message from the UK government - your homes, your pensions, your incomes are not safe under Westminster control. This UK economic crisis shows Scotland needs independence to escape Westminster control and get rid of the Tories for good

Someone must stop Truss from spreading misinformation. My neighbours, all pensioners, believe that they can use as much electricity as they like and will not pay more than 拢2,500. I've tried to tell them that the unit price is capped. She's spouting irresponsible nonsense.

On her broadcast round this morning, the Prime Minister said that, thanks to the gov intervention, 鈥減eople across this country are not facing energy bills of more than 拢2,500鈥 this year. Not only is this downright wrong, it鈥檚 wildly dangerous 鈥 a thread 馃У 1/

Two previous Bank of England governors, the IMF, multiple US Federal Reserve officials, a former US Treasury secretary and nearly every leading banker and economist on the planet are unanimous: the budget is to blame for this crisis. Tories: it鈥檚 Putin鈥檚 fault.

Liz Truss said several times in her radio round that no family would pay more than 拢2,500 this year for energy bills. This is just *not* the case - and here鈥檚 why 馃憞馃徏

Liz Truss doesn't know what she is doing. Liz Truss doesn't know what she is talking about. Liz Truss is poorly briefed. Liz Truss is pretending nothing has changed. Liz Truss is trying to blame someone else. Liz Truss is lying.

ICYMI: It鈥檚 not the first time recent governments have taken bizarre decisions against the interests of the British people, but it is the first time they have been so swiftly and so decisively called out. My piece on how things seem to be on the turn: minghella.com/light-on-tufto鈥

Once this crisis is stabilised we need to break the #Brexit omert脿 in British politics & openly accept that after six long years this mis-sold & mishandled project has resulted in political & economic chaos. That鈥檚 an essential first step towards repairing the damage.
