An international banker friend tells me: “The hedge funds made a ton of money because they met up with #KwasiKwarteng 3 days before the announcement and they shorted Sterling big time - isn’t that insider trading in a mega way? I am appalled”

The newspapers told you David Cameron, Theresa May, Boris Johnson and Liz Truss would all make the best prime minister. So maybe the newspapers aren't very good at telling you who would make the best prime minister 🤔

We need a General Election now. Nobody voted to crash the economy.

The government is set to relax immigration rules to help fill the vast number of job vacancies in the UK. Why did we leave the EU again?

BREAKING - Labour members have passed a motion backing a change to the voting system to proportional representation. Carried easily on a show of hands. Big cheer in the hall when it passed.

Electoral reform is the precondition of the most important constitutional changes we need in our country. It is the foundation upon we can build a moderate, consensual, evidence-based system from the ruins of pathological know-nothing machismo. There's no more important fight.

Would you be surprised to discover Tory MPs were tipping off hedgefunders or tanking the economy on purpose? Those shorting the pound are linked to specific political decisions and specific MPs. This was what Brexit was about, read JRMs dads books. I say we arrest them.

I wonder whether David Cameron sometimes sits with his head in his hands thinking 'What have I done?'

If you're unclear what's taking place here, the UK government is basically doing to its own country what it used to do to its empire

I'm in my sixties. I've seen some pretty horrible people come and go in British politics but I've never seen a government so criminally minded, so corrupt, so determined to steal the maximum possible amount from working people and give it to the rich.

Kwarteng (Eton) is ex Odey Asset Mngt. Crispin Odey (Harrow) made a killing shorting the pound after Brexit. His firm also made a fortune shorting the pound after Friday’s budget. These public school boys look after each other. At least it all makes a bit more sense now.

I know I've said this before. But you really get the sense that this government WANT to get voted out at the next GE. What's more to the point is how much can be stolen in the meantime? Let's face it. This government's policies are all actually THEFT from the British public.
