The Lady's Not For Turning: Apparently!
Liz Truss is heading for the annual Conservative Conference in Birmingham. This comes on the back of the successful Labour party conference in Liverpool. The mood at the Labour party conference was buoyant as Labour seem to sense their time is coming again. They stand at 33% above the Conservatives. The mood at the Tory conference will have an air of desperation as Truss may have squandered her political popularity. Squandered because Kwasi Kwarteng's mini-budget started a panic in the financial industry. When it was revealed that bankers would have their bonuses reinstated and the wealthy would in the main, gain from the budget it caused a storm.
Tories Reverting To Type Under Kami-Kwasi.
Labour it would appear has been given a gift by Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng or 'Kami-Kwasi'. Labour accused the chancellor of crashing the Pound after Mr. Kwarteng's mini-budget. The Pound did indeed fall and is at its lowest in 37 years.
Rachel Reeves: Praises Sir Keir and Attacks Kwarteng's Tax Discounts.
Shadow Chancellor Rachel Reeves certainly had much to say about her leader and her opposite number Kwarsi Kwateng. Speaking about Sir Keir Starmer Ms Reeves said he was a "brilliant man". There would be some justice in Ms Reeves describing him as such. Sir Keir had a brilliant and outstanding career whilst practicing as a barrister. He was also Director of Public Prosecutions and represented some clients for free. As Labour leader he had to make Labour electable again. This Sir Keir has done but has probably alienated the still present Corbynistas in the party. Sir Keir has weathered the Boris years and surivived other storms too. Now with Labour climbing in the polls and ahead of the Tories Labour are back it would seem. Depending on fortune of course Sir Keir could be the next Prime Minister in 2024.
Shadow Chancellor Rachel Reeves: "Sir Keir A Brilliant Man".
Start writing...Rachel Reeves Shadow Chancellor has described Sir Keir as a "brilliant man". Kay Burley interviewing her on Sky News asked if Andy Burnham would make a future Labour leader. Ms Reeves retorted that she was backing Sir Keir Starmer the current leader. Ms Reeves felt that under Sir Keir's leadership the Labour party was winning the battle of the ideas.
Liz Truss Condemns Vlad The Invader.
Liz Truss said in a recent interview she is prepared to be "unpopular". Lifting the ban on bankers' bonuses many will not like it. Cutting tax, she admitted will mostly benefit the better off. Ms. Truss in doing such moves claims it will fire up the economy. However, many critics including some Tories say it's a huge risk. The Prime Minister only has 2 years to make these policies work. She and new Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng will soon be having a mini-budget. Obviously, to deal with the rising cost of living the UK is facing.
Coverage Of The Queen: Overkill.
The death of Queen Elizabeth II is the end of an era. The Queen ruled for 80 years from 1952 - 2022. During that time from the age of 25 to 96, she oversaw Britain's change. From one of empire to one of post-empire with all that that entails.
Liz Truss Runs Away From BBC Interview.
Liz Truss is likely to be the next Prime Minister by September 5. According to polls, among the 150,000 members of the Conservative party, Liz Truss is the clear winner. Her rival Former chancellor Rishi Sunak has no chance to beat Ms. Truss apparently.
Tom Tugendhat: Backs Liz Truss.
Liz Truss appears to be ahead in the race to replace Boris. Rishi Sunak is definitely the underdog in this fight. If Mr. Sunak has any hope of catching his female rival he will have to pull something out of the hat swiftly.
