Liz Truss, the ‘born again Conservative’ Robin Hood. Giving back to the rich while sticking two fingers up at the poor. Full video here: invidious.fdn.fr/w-V5FVludFk

Piers Morgan so desperate for views he has to pander to the man baby Peterson🤦‍♂️. Absolute drivel. Peterson is so wrong about so much and he’s lauded. Don’t drink Peterson Koolaid, it’s poison.
Great casting! I was overjoyed to see him!
#Andor introducing Ben Bailey Smith to their world is a great choice. Fantastic in his role.

🚨NEW🚨 On the @bankofengland intervention: Am told the BoE were responding to a “run dynamic” on pension funds - a wholesale equivalent of the run which destroyed Northern Rock. Had they not intervened, there would have been mass insolvencies of pension funds by THIS AFTERNOON.

Not content with turning us into the first country ever to impose economic sanctions on itself, Brexiters have now executed the biggest self-inflected financial crisis in history. But they’re the ‘patriotic’ ones…

With Labour you will have strong public services.   A greener, fairer Britain. Pro-business & pro-worker for a stronger economy, where you do well - because when you do well, Britain does well.   It’s time for a government on your side. It’s time for a Labour government. #Lab22

Pie at his utter best, never gets old, only gets angrier and more venomous and I’m fully signed up for it.

I feel quite bad about this tbh. I think that when my first book, How To Be Right, did so well (280,000 copies to date or a 'dud' according to the criminal drunkard @GuidoFawkes) other people would heed its 'think tank' warning. The BBC even promised to, I think. But here we are.
We really do. A log of every time an employee of a secretly-funded think tank appears in print or broadcast media without disclosing who pays their wages would be a serious public service. People would be astonished by the amount. Some even have columns in Barclay/Murdoch organs.

Tax implications aside, lobbyists being 'seconded' to government roles is obviously appalling. Whose interests do they serve, the country's or their company's clientele? You'd have to be a secretly-funded 'think tank' shill to argue that it could ever be both...
EXCL: Liz Truss chief of staff is being paid his salary via his lobbying firm and is only "seconded" to No10 in arrangement he won't explain Mark Fullbrook says he's not using company for tax benefit days after govt junked IR35 reforms to make this easier thetimes.co.uk/article/top-l…

I want to be Britain's first green Chancellor. That's why Labour will invest in renewable and nuclear power. Our Green Prosperity Plan will create good jobs across our country, increase our energy security - and crucially grow our economy.

“The important thing is to get the economics right” says brexit-backing economist.
Replying to @julianHjessop
In short, talk of 'market meltdown' and a 'sterling crisis' is still overdone. It may take more time to win over investors and the general public, but the most important thing is to get the economics right. This is a good start, despite the negative headlines. [Ends].
