If I snorted Coke a lot and was Chancellor of the Exchequer, I'd be thinking I've done a great job right now. But I'm not I'm a voter and I think he's really fucked up and I will never forgive the Tories. #ToryMPs #KwasiKwarteng #KwasiBudget #KwasiHigh #bbcwato #bbcpm

At lunchtime #bbcwato brought in Rocco Forte of the hotel chain and in the past Cafès and Restaurants who was full of praise but it is no secret he is a supporter of the Conservatives.

We need regular drug and alcohol testing for ministers and MPs before votes and entering the chamber or appearing before select committees. We do it for train drivers. #Parliament #bbcwato #bbcpm #r4today

Treasury minister Andrew Griffith tells #BBCWATO: "It's not the job of the government to lay out forecasts of growth..." Implying there's no timeline for the 2.5% target to be reached. #minibudget2022
Did I really hear the Financial Secretary to the Treasury say that it is not the Government's responsibility to produce forecasts for growth? Surely such modelling is a key responsibility for the Treasury as it balances out tax and spend policies. #BBCWATO

The Tory Government - elected by circa 80,000 middle and upper class Tory Party members - is dancing to the tune of hard right opaque think tanks like the IEA. So much for sovereignty and taking back control! #BBCWATO

It's high time the Conservatives were stripped of their unwarranted reputation of economic competence. Labour should be screaming it from the rooftops. #wato #bbcwato

The 'engines of the economy' are the low paid workers, Sir Rocco. #wato #bbcwato

@BBCWorldatOne please don't invite so called think tanks onto the show without first mentioning how they are funded. If they refuse to say, like @iealondon do, then don't allow them to speak. This is how vested interests skew the public debate.

Rocco Forte is the #bbcwato go-to man to talk absolute bollocks. He gets the call whenever something bonkers needs defending. Good to know he has a role to play in public life, albeit a somewhat bizzare one.

Would someone like to point out to Rocco Forte that this is _not_ a new government - it's the same government with a change of leadership #bbcwato
