Thinking more about reactions to the Truss/Kwarteng not-a-budget released Friday. While I yield to nobody in my disdain for their embrace of zombie economics, I'm puzzled by all the talk about a looming sterling crisis 1/

This government was elected on the promises of their greenest ever manifesto. Future generations will not forgive or forget should they fail to live up to their all-important climate and nature commitments. 7/7

It's also a deeply unpopular move. Polling by WWF found 70% of British adults agree that the government should provide more support, including payments, for farmers that invest in farming practices that tackle climate change and practices that benefit wildlife and nature. 4/

There is no policy problem to which a subsidy on land ownership is a solution. @GreenAllianceUK research found a 2 year delay to Environmental Land Management schemes would funnel ยฃ1.2bn to the richest farmers simply for owning land - an inefficient use of public money. 3/

The UK Government was rightly viewed as a global leader in this space and @Ranil should seize the opportunity to export our experience and expertise. Breaking this promise will set back the mission for sustainable agriculture around the world. 2/

Rumours this evening that @DefraGovUK will renege on the manifesto commitment to pay farmers to "protect and enhance our natural environment" are deeply concerning. There is no food security without nature. 1/๐Ÿงต

ยฃ45 billion of tax cuts. This is biggest tax cutting event since 1972. Barber's "dash for growth" then ended in disaster. That Budget is now known as the worst of modern times. Genuinely, I hope this one works very much better.

Despite today's tax cuts middle earners are still set to lose as a result of tax changes over next years. The freezing of allowances and thresholds is still a big tax increase. Only those on over ยฃ155,000 will pay less tax overall. The very rich will pay tens of thousands less
Todayโ€™s measures mean that the richest tenth of households, who were set to lose around ยฃ3,500 a year (3%) on average by 2025-26 under Johnson and Sunakโ€™s plans, will now gain around ยฃ700 a year (1%) on average. #minibudget

Fun fact I did not know untilโ€ฆtoday. Bluetooth is named after Harald Bluetooth, former king of Denmark, father of Sweyn Forkbeard, grandfather to King Cnut. The Bluetooth logo is a combination of runes for H and B, for Harald Bluetooth. (He had a dead tooth which was blue/grey).

One of those tweets but: I'm being made redundant from my job after 2 years. So I'm putting it out there just in case there is something suitable. I would love to work for a company with kind people and with a strong vision. (1)
