One of the most enduring legacies of Brexit is the licence it gave to imbeciles to spout gibberish without consequence.
Replying to @AdamBienkov
"The current system would rather our young people get a degree in Harry Potter studies, than in construction," says Higher Education Minister Andrea Jenkyns, who says that universities are feeding students "a diet of critical race theory, anti British history and Social Marxism."

Restoring the 45p higher tax rate may fix an immediate political problem for the Chancellor... but not the underlying economic (and indeed political) one, which is where to find £40bn of annual savings in the run up to an election?

I’m sure you’re not but we love you listening. Tell us what the dog thinks. @TheNewsAgents
You lost me at ‘Jacob Rees-Mogg says’ but I’ll still listen to tonight’s episode of this cracking podcast while walking the dog. Making sense of all the mess for a duffer like me.

Jacob Rees-Mogg says Truss and Kwarteng's jobs are safe and the public's "obsession with U-turns is an error". "This all gets frightfully overstated. You've got to do what is required for the circumstances." Listen on @GlobalPlayer 📲 @maitlis | @jonsopel | @Jacob_Rees_Mogg

From a man who knows the Tory party better than most… more too after six on LBC
NEW: Theresa May's former joint Chief of Staff @NJ_Timothy tells @AndrewMarr9 he knows "MPs are openly talking" about a coup against Liz Truss. "Let's not beat around the bush: the libertarian part of the party has taken control of the leadership"

The Lady is NOT for turni… oh wait…🚗🛞🚘⛔️↪️…. @TheNewsAgents
The PM & Chancellor U-turn on a tax cut without consulting Cabinet ministers and despite saying they'd stick to their guns. It's political humiliation. And Jacob Rees-Mogg joins us, likening the tax cut reversal to a game of Mastermind. On @GlobalPlayer: globalplayer.com/podcasts/ep…

.@Maitlis and my exchange with Jacob Rees- Mogg on reason for the government #UTurn - quite an exchange….
Jacob Rees-Mogg compares Kwasi Kwarteng's tax cut U-turn to "Mastermind". "Sometimes you have the right colour in the wrong space. Government have to deal with political reality." @jonsopel: "You make it sound like it's a game." On @GlobalPlayer 📲 @maitlis | @Jacob_Rees_Mogg

This is the game @Jacob_Rees_Mogg is comparing the tax cut policy to. He tells us “ some good policies have a bad time “. @TheNewsAgents
We sat down with JRM on @TheNewsAgents and he compared the Tory tax policy to a game of Mastermind

Is Kwasi Kwarteng safe? Andrew Mitchell tells @TheNewsAgents: "Well, I don't think you can - you know - you can judge a chancellor entirely on his first two weeks in office, I think we now need to see what he does over the expenditure side of the equation."

We want you both back ! Spot on analysis - everything you told @TheNewsAgents came to pass rather quickly …
Just recorded an episode of @TheNewsAgents podcast with @maitlis and @jonsopel with my old friend and colleague, the pollster, @AndrewCooper__ - no prizes for guessing what we were talking about…
