The problem with tax is that tories seem to have lower tax as their single most important agenda item. Not because it is coherent, part of a plan for growth, or anything, but because they don't like tax. It's that simple.
This.Thing is, none of these attributes are news, we have known this for weeks/months/years.
However, she still got the second highest number of MPs voting for her and most Tory party members
They won't; they'll just oust Truss as leader and hope that her replacement can bring back some credibility over the next 2 years to avoid total wipeout.I don’t think so, from reports some Tory MPs would vote for an election now even if it meant losing their seats.
Oh I dunno, sounds like NSC. A couple of defeats and some posters say "I was a supporter of Potter/De Zerbi/Whoever, but now I've changed my mind!"...
The last two clowns elected as tory leader are a reflection of the gormlessness of the conservative party. A tory member now is saying he voted for Truss and now thinks she should go. How can anyone actually do that?
How long will we have to put up with nearly-dead conservatives, 'leading' us, zombie-like, into oblivion, still convinced they have all the answers?
Until the opposition come up with something better.In the last ten years we have seen the evolution of grotesque tory entitlement. Time after time they fuck everything up, and then come up with a new plan that they declare is better than any other plan. Then they rinse and repeat. Ever more strong, and ever more stable. And some people still buy this. 'They are doing the best possible job under these difficult circumstances'.
Apparently when slavery was ended in the West Indies, many of the former slaves begged their former masters to take them back. There is probably a psychological term for this. Learned helplessness? And some animals will eat their own vomit. All this is behaviour associated with desperation, born of being in a near-death situation. How long will we have to put up with nearly-dead conservatives, 'leading' us, zombie-like, into oblivion, still convinced they have all the answers?
This is derailing the thread as discussion of MMT is forbiddenMagic Money Tree*. it may as well, as thats the intent, to portray an economy where government can create money and spend on what they like and doesnt need to borrow. despite trillions of dollars, pounds, euros, yen, yuan, etc, it says the governments are doing it all wrong.
