      The whole Truss premiership is totally unsalvageable now anyway, even the most stubborn and/or deluded Tory knows it and pretending otherwise would be a new definition of insanity.

      Labour are 25 points ahead in the polls. The Times switched to Labour the last time that happened (Blair),even The Telegraph switched in 1997 although only at the last minute. The Tories are down to their base support now, the idiots who read the mail and express. The tide has turned and little wonder, a government that lost the country 65 billion pounds in three days, u-turned and then talked of growing pies!

    I'm what Truss might call "anti-growth"
    You know, proper investment in the education and health of citizens. Curtailing the worst greed and avarice of markets and companies with no social responsibility. Protecting the environment and hopefully shielding our children from further ecological decline of our planet.
    There's a word for endless growth in finite sorroundings in the natural word: Cancer.

      @Paul N See, I see what you’re saying and mocking. Oven ready pie, oven ready Brexit deal, get Brexit done.
      If you look at the out-working of Dunning-Kruger then you realise that those who are unencumbered by intelligence and knowledge “sound” like they are “sure”. People who don’t know gravitate to those that “sound” like they know what they’re talking about and “simple” slogans replace actual debate on what’s best.
      All jokes aside, Liz Truss is actually on paper a “great” modern politician. Thick, ignorant (in the true sense of the word), and only capable of delivering a short slogan without being capable of actually expanding upon the idea or vision. Fine when the 6 o’clock news shows 8 seconds, not fine when she has to do an interview on Sunday morning where someone asks her questions.
      Then she looks like the President in the movie Idiocracy.

    The problem has always been short term thinking by careerist politicians engaging in system serving behavior. Biggest example is politicians enacting policies that benefit their donors, then when they've finished their destructive political career, getting a job with their donors.

    • MysticHero
      MysticHero Month ago

      @Monk of Mayhem I am talking about the consensus. Because it's not just one institution as my comment clearly said. It's not my problem that your reading comprehension is lacking.
      Just google it. This really is consensus. Any actual research on the matter finds the same thing. Loughborough university reports are something to look at as they do regular research on media bias in the UK. There is a report every election and sometimes inbetween as well. But in general it has been pretty consitently shown that UK media is very biased towards the right. I know thats hard to believe when you are constantly blasted by conservative propaganda about the establishment or woke people or whatever running the media but it's pretty undeniable.
      You are always welcome to offer a source that disagrees or show how their methodology is flawed. The data is there to look through. But I think we both know you don't have an actual reason to doubt this beyond the truth being uncomfortable.

      ​@jamesc well, my vote goes to the politician who would ensure wages go up and the cost of living goes down even if it means to take on the share-holders.

    • jamesc
      jamesc Month ago

      @Reasoner Enlightened I hate to say it as much as that would be the ideal system it's not the one we have . Shareholders will not tolerate deminishing returns on their investment so profits cannot be allowed to fall this is the principle of free market capitalism so profits can only go up

    • Monk of Mayhem

      Richard Valvona Month ago

      She'll be finished but not the Conservatives. Boris Johnson careful planned for this to happen in order to save his own reputation in the hopes of getting into Number 10. It's the reason he extended the leadership voting to all party members instead of just Tory MPs. It's a distraction to make people forget about his party scandals and ward off Keir Starmer's questions about this subject. The media aren't telling us this. They want to build people up with false hope that the Tories will finally be ousted and with the hope that there's a chance that Labour will get in and improve this country again. It's a trap.

      Yes because this is a mere distraction. Johnson planned this all along by extending the leadership vote to all party members knowing that someone totally reckless will take his place. It will make him seem not so bad after all in comparison and with the media now focused on this instead, the public will forget about Johnson's disregard for the rules. His plan is to get try and get back into Number 10 and been seen in a good light again.
