    Sweet lord preserve us, she now gets her own thread.

    Buckle up everyone.

    The woman is characterless. Maybe that’s what we need for a bit?
    C’mon Lizzy please put Pritti Vacant on the back benches. 🙏

    Ah, I did have a good rummage before putting this up, that would explain it.

    2 pages until some of the big $hitters start saying it is starmers fault.

    Truss is basically a fraggle made into human form, absolutely nothing alive behind the eyes

    I wonder how long it will be before the usual select few turn this into yet another Corbyn thread with incredibly predictable results.

    We’re going to buggered harder than Ron Jeremy but with less warmth!

    Some IEA nutter on the radio, I think it was Mark Littlewood, talking about how Truss reducing taxes and creating enterprise zones with reduced regulation will save us all.

    These people are **** evil.

    Never mind the working time directive, I think they would like to go back and tear up The Reform Act.

    I though Ron did most of the buggering?

    Well that’s the union done and a trade war with Europe started, probably both done before breakfast.

    C’mon Lizzy please put Pritti Vacant on the back benches. 🙏

    You’ve seen who she’ll be replacing her with?

    Yet another of many, many depressingly negative answers to the question ‘it can’t be worse than Boris, surely?’

    Say hello to Home Secretary Braverman

    Strap yourself in folks. It’s going to be quite a ride

    First stop: trigger article 16 to start a full on trade war with the EU. Then god only knows… bringing back hanging? Declaring war on France?

    On the plus side at least the Tories have shown the vacuity of identity politics. Thatcher did less for women than any PM since 1945 etc etc

    Braverman is terrifying, hope you’re not too attached to any of your rights to hold the government to account via peaceful protest or judicial review.

    I wonder how many official photographers she’ll have on the (taxpayers) payroll to traipse around after her? She’ll need to hire another private plane for them as well as her own

    The woman is characterless.

    Strange, I don’t think she is at all. Obviously less character than Johnson but imo a lot more than Theresa May. And probably no less than most other current senior politicians or former PM Gordon Brown.

    She’ll have Truss’ backing there…

    Protests, strikes, working only paid and contracted hours… all rights that are up for grabs…

    I heard this morning that the worlds only human oxymoron is in line for Foreign Secretary.

    FFS how has it come to this, where James Cleverly gets a position like that?

    By the looks of the URL, (liz-truss-3) she’s had 2 before! I’m sure she’ll be thrilled with that, her aims have only ever been about self aggrandisement after all.

    Despite all of the red meat thrown down for the Tory members during the hustings, I think there’s every likelyhood that we’re about to see some heavyweight regulation of the Energy Companies in the form of price capping and/or some huge state spending in the form of QE to help people out.

    As always, Socialism to the rescue in times of a real state crisis.

    Just about sums up  the whole shambolic excuse for leadership we now have…

    “Thousands of years of British history and this is how it ends. Leading the world in innovation, in the arts, all of that and now we’re at the level of a third-world country where the dictator’s daughter becomes leader while he has a nice year off.

    “Everything we’ve said, everything we’ve done, has brought us to the point of Liz Truss. It was all worthless because now we’re at Liz Truss. F**king hell.”

    Wouldn’t that be yet another U turn?

    Do you trust her to negotiate any thing decent with the energy companies? All she will do is spread the payments of over the next few years. We still pay huge money to their shareholders. Better than the current situation but still shit.

    Besides I know people who will not be able to afford their bills this winter without the massive forecast increase.

    They purged all the competent Tories over Brexit, so all that are left are those that either genuinely thought it was a good idea or had no backbone whatsover and are happy to pretend it was a good idea. So we have either genuine morons or spineless individuals happy to be a moron.

    Quite interesting that each Tory PM is worse than the last and in all cases the last one was abysmal. There is no depth to which they cannot fall….

    Tbf my expectations for Truss are so low that she’s going to exceed them , right ??? 😳

    Made me smile


    A newspaper in France has described Liz Truss as the Iron weathervane (or weathercock), in a reference to her Thatcherite pretensions and changing position on Brexit,

    Anyway – my bet is she’ll be gone before the next election….

    Can’t believe any meeting twixt Truss and energy companies won’t involve energy companies getting bigger profits and the poor energy users getting ripped off still either with still mental prices or some dodgy scheme where we end up paying for massive payrises for the bosses for the next 20 years.

    Or to the oil companies’ shareholders?

    Long stopped thinking the Tories would do anything but continue torying. It wouldn’t have mattered who they had up front.

    The next election is the only way out.

    Let’s hope people grab it. My current instinct is that this wasted summer has made kicking this government out more likely, not less, but we’ll see…
