No help with energy bills, we have to stomach it for our own security, and here comes the lifting of caps on bankers' bonuses

Thanks Liz

She'll be at least as hopeless as the last guy, but with added climate denial. And instead of dealing with the genuine problems that Brexit is causing, continue to pretend they don't exist.

Truss is going to be the right wing version of Corbyn and a disaster for the same reason.
A child with a bright new toy she never expected to get and playing with all the pieces all the time altering everything and achieving nothing.

Someone made an excellent point that she's channelling Thatcher but Thatcher just as she was when she left office.

It's quite possible we could end up with the Miner's strike but for Miner read general and the poll tax riots but substitute power for poll tax.

This could be a bad winter for an awful lot of reasons let's just hope snow and ice isn't one of them.

The 'mini budget' (for which all govt analysis remains unpublished and hidden from scrutiny) has proved such a success with the international financial markets that the £ is currently absolutely tanking against the $ and even the weakened €.

We are borrowing vast sums to give tax cuts to the rich that will have no effect on the poor and at far greater cost as it is now much more expensive for the UK to borrow.

They can't even seem to understand the simple logic that fracking - even in spite of the fact that the vast majority of the population are vehemently against it - will do absolutely zero to ease our energy crisis or make gas cheaper.

We are in deep, deep trouble. I don't think people realise how bad things could get. I am genuinely worried that our economy could be facing a catastrophe. They are making a huge bet with hundreds of billions of borrowed money (that the taxpayer will have to repay) that it will grow the economy sufficiently to pay for itself. The markets have already given their verdict.

EDIT: Pound has fallen to something like $1.09 - getting close to parity with the $!!! This is terrifying!!!

They've gone full Thatcher, and loco poll-tax Thatcher at that. Back to the good old days of boom and bust, with 15% interest rates to look forward to.

There are slight rumbles that there may be enough upset in her own party for some of this not to go through.

On the bright side, a weaker pound makes everything we import (which is most things) more expensive.

$1.09 to the pound which results in about $1.05 if you go to buy them at Tesco
So your back of fag packet calculation if over there is parity.
