#sunak & Co aren't even subtle about what they're doing, they think it's in the bag because they live in the bubble.

1. PARTY: They will render impotent, the Conservative Post petition - Sunak is already creating his own chosen member stooges to head it off at Conference
2. ECONOMY: #sunak said "profound economic crisis" setting the crisis in motion - even though that's patently not the case! This was supported by the useless OBR but worse, the Bank of England.
3. DISTRATION PR: They're currently sending up loads of kites - the Steve Barclay announcement about NHS penpushers this morning - which are clearly just distractions.

THREAD: #Sunak, the man who created this "profound #economic #crisis, seems to have no clue how to fix it - less than #Kwarteng for sure!
cont.
No, I & millions of others are not happy about paying for your mistakes #Sunak!
cont. Image
Not happy because #Sunak is choosing the worst possible route forward, increasing taxation on those who have the least income to spare - remembering the truly rich do not pay income tax... he would know that, wouldn't he!

#Sunak, Prime M0R0N is going to maintain size of public sector but cut their budget - some same useless resources for even less useless work.
CONT.
#Sunak, Prime M0R0N is going raise taxes, hindering growth, choking business, meaning less money in the economy & raising less revenue for government.
CONT.
#Sunak, Prime M0R0N has shortfall in taxation revenue to fill his black hole; so there will be further increases in taxation as the UK spirals into #recession, a vicious downward spiral heading ultimately to stagflation! CONT.

The #Braverman #leaks have wider implications that speak to basic technological & governmental competencies for elected representatives & officials alike! Thread....

@GuidoFawkes 1. Why was the Minister of State for the Home Office, a department responsible for national security, not herself aware of the #cybersecurity risks which attend e-mails.
2. Why was #Braverman not #briefed accordingly upon taking up the role? Or if she was, why take the risk?
3. Why would she even think asking someone to delete an email was sensible? Any business person would know that:
a) they are virtually impossible to retrieve ad hoc: &
b) this violates the electronic record.

Your #ECFRweekinreview: 5 updates ahead of the weekend. A thread 🧵
1/5 Concerns are mounting that 🇧🇾 troops could join 🇷🇺 ’s forces in 🇺🇦. But this course of action would be extremely risky – for both #Putin and #Lukashenka.

@PavelSlunkin on why the 🇧🇾 army cannot help 🇷🇺 in 🇺🇦 👇buff.ly/3W8Tngg

@ECFRWiderEurope
2/5 Given the task #Sunak faces to stabilise 🇬🇧’s economy without further immiserating the population, he will likely decide that unnecessary conflict with Brussels is something he had better avoid.

#RishiSunak was at the heart of the #HerdImmunityScandal

Every epidemiologist, virologist & scientist made clear that - without a vaccine - #HerdImmunity was an “outcome” never a “strategy”

On 21/9/20, Sunak & Johnson skipped a crucial SAGE meeting to meet two lockdown sceptics
At the Sept meeting that Sunak skipped, SAGE had advised a circuit-breaker lockdown

Scientists had also warned against #Sunak's Eat Out to Help Out scheme which is closely linked to rise in #COViD19 cases & likely helped trigger a rise in deaths among ethnic minority populations
After #Sunak & Johnson were briefed by the anti-lockdown sceptics, they ignored SAGE’s advice to:

1. introduce a circuit-breaker lockdown

2. close pubs, restaurants & gyms

3. stop households mixing in each other’s homes

4. stop face-to-face teaching at universities & colleges

Non sarà #Borisback, con sommo dispiacere dei cronisti politici, alla disperata ricerca di personaggi - caratteri - da raccontare. Precipitarsi a Londra dai Caraibi non è bastato. Rovinare la vacanza alla moglie Carrie - chissà come l'avrà presa, i vicini di casa ricordano

nitidamente le sue urla, qualche anno fa, nell'atto di dare al povero #BoJo del viziato per un po' di vino versato sul divano (e che sarà mai!), e subito dopo il "crash" del suo portatile scaraventato chissà dove (non solo gossip, c'è dell'epica).
Boris si fa da parte

dalla corsa per la leadership dei Conservatori (e dunque del governo del Regno Unito).
Per ora, per l'unità del partito, per il bene del Paese. Sì, ma chi lo conosce assicura che il motivo è un altro: "Johnson si ritira da una corsa solo se è certo di non poterla vincere",

JUST IN: #BNNUK Reports.

@RishiSunak looked on track to become the next prime minister after @BorisJohnson quit the race, admitting that he couldn't unite his party after one of Britain's most turbulent periods. #Britain #PrimeMinister #Sunak
Sunak, the 42-year-old former finance minister, could be named leader as soon as Monday to replace @trussliz, making him Britain's third prime minister in two months.
As Britain slides into a recession, dragged down by rising energy, food, and mortgage rates, the multi-millionaire former hedge fund boss faces one of the most daunting challenges.

1 soutien inattendu et majeur dans la course pour devenir leader Tory et PM en Grande Bretagne: Kemi Badenoch, étoile montante du conservatisme culturel droitier, issue de l'immigration nigériane, vote Rishi #Sunak. L'ébauche d'un tout sauf #BorisJohnson? thetimes.co.uk/article/kemi-b…
2. Le ralliement de #Badenoch à #Sunak semble indiquer qu'1 éventuel duel avec #BorisJohnson- toujours pas candidat- ne se fera pas sur 1 clivage modérés/radicaux chez les conservateurs mais bien plus sur le degré d'adhésion ou de rejet de la personnalité et du style de l'ex PM.
3. #Badenoch, qui a étonnamment brillé lors de 1a précédente course au #leadership en juillet sans se prononcer alors entre #Sunak et #Truss, joue aussi clairement le coup d'après #BorisJohnson s'il est écarté. Très jeune (42 ans), elle peut mener l'aile droite Tory à l'avenir...

Se pensate che il caos politico sia all'ordine del giorno solo in Italia allora non sapete cosa sta accadendo in Inghilterra, dove la premier Liz #Truss ha appena licenziato il suo Cancelliere dello Scacchiere, l'equivalente del ministro dell'Economia, Kwasi #Kwarteng. Image
Trattasi di mossa disperata da parte del primo ministro, decisa a sacrificare il suo uomo dei conti per provare a salvare se stessa. Dopo poche settimane a Downing Street, infatti, i Tories che l'hanno issata alla guida del partito sembrano averne già piene le tasche. Image
Nei corridoi di Westiminster gira voce che 20 e + parlamentari siano pronti a chiedere le dimissioni di #Truss, favorendo l'ascesa di un ticket composto dall'ex Cancelliere dello Scacchiere, Rishi #Sunak, e dalla leader dei Comuni, Penny #Mordaunt. Image

Miliband said the government had done nothing on insulation since Keir Starmer called for an urgent plan

Politico London: #Chevening chat: Over the weekend Truss was holed up with close aides in Chevening House, the grace and favor home she has access to as foreign secretary, nailing down whom she will put in her top team if she wins, and which policies she will pursue /1 #Truss
/2 Allies were being tight-lipped about the outcome of the away day last night, insisting there is “no complacency,” but that it is right that preparations for No. 10 Downing Street are being made.

Not so fast: Hope springs eternal over at rival #RishiSunak’s campaign HQ,

#BorisJohnson colpito e affondato da un'ondata di dimissioni?
O di "tradimenti", per dirla come il suo inner circle, sempre più stretto, per indicare gli oltre 50 esponenti #Tories che hanno lasciato il proprio posto nel governo e nel partito per spingerlo a lasciare il N°10. Image
#BoJo è letteralmente accerchiato. Sopravvissuto in maniera rocambolesca ad un voto di sfiducia del suo partito lo scorso mese, negli ultimi giorni è finito nuovamente nel mirino: colpa dello scandalo sessuale che ha riguardato il deputato conservatore Chris Pincher. Image
#BorisJohnson nominò Pincher vice whip del partito Conservatore alla Camera dei Comuni - un incarico che in italiano potremmo definire come vicecapogruppo - pur essendo informato del fatto che fosse stato accusato di molestie sessuali. Image

Has #Sunak really lost £11bn in a 'debt blunder'?

This is complicated, but for once I'm going to side with the Treasury here... 🤓

Three key points:

1. The Treasury would have had to order the #BoE to force commercial banks to swap reserves for gilts - not a good look...
2, The Treasury would have had to get the timing just right to save £11 billion, and done so while issuing huge amounts of new gilts without disrupting the market, or influencing interest rate expectations. Not realistic.

Indeed, this strategy could easily have lost money...
3. The 'insurance' proposed by @NIESRorg would also only have been temporary, because it would replace reserves with short-dated (1-2 year) gilts.

Looking further out, the average maturity of UK gov't debt is already relatively long - for which the DMO deserves more credit.

Paul Waugh: Will Boris Johnson replace #RishiSunak with #LizTruss?
A Prime Minister, facing plotters inside and out his government, gets a drubbing in the local elections. He then opts to reshuffle his Cabinet the very next day, in a bid to “re-set” his entire government /1
/2 and prove he’s still the man in charge.
Well, that’s exactly what happened in May 2006 when Tony Blair reacted to Labour’s loss of 319 council seats and the control of 17 town halls...
So, is Boris Johnson tempted to do the same in the aftermath of this week’s local elections?
/3 In some ways the parallels are uncanny with 16 years ago, not least with a Home Secretary under huge pressure in a “not fit for purpose” department,party chairman with too much on their plate and prospect of worrying losses in key party heartlands (especially in the south).
