    The Tories successfully conned everyone into not voting magic grandpa with the magic money tree, under the pretenses that he was crazy because such a magic money tree did not exist.

    Well, turns out we actually did have more than enough money to make these allegedly unrealistic ideas into reality, seeing how the Tories conjured 2-3 magic money trees, all funneled into the pocket of cronies and bankers, at the expense of the plebian taxpayers, while crashing the £/UK economy too!

    And they've f***ed our pensions.

    You'd think middle England voters might care about that, it will hit a huge swathe of Tory voters. And everyone else too.

    I never ever ever bet, but I just tried to place £100 (20-1) at William Hill for Kwarteng to be next minister to go but it would only allow a maximum stake of £5.00?

    From Ed Conway:

    intervention: Am told the BoE were responding to a “run dynamic” on pension funds - a wholesale equivalent of the run which destroyed Northern Rock. Had they not intervened, there would have been mass insolvencies of pension funds by THIS AFTERNOON."

    At least you can get £5 on.

    WH restricted my a/c and then closed it after I placed four successful Lucky 15's in a row.

    Gotta say.. none of these arrogant, entitled, clueless goons are a great advertisement for an Eton education.

    I could probably get behind Sir K but I’d also be voting for the same party as Marxists holding their nose but pressuring for a lurch in their direction. I suppose worst case they could always be voted out at the next GE. The UK demonstrated at recent GE’s that it firmly rejects an extreme left govt.

    As you and others are frequently reminded, that statement is wrong on both counts.

    I’m hoping it’ll be at least a decade before they trust the Tories to run anything more complicated than a whelk stall.

    It’s ‘true conservatism’ in all its horror.

    Good old DB pensions. Magic if you’ve got one, just shows how fragile they are.

    The lady is not for turning*:

    "Exc: Whitehall to be told to find efficiency savings as well as refusing to reopen spending review. Chris Philp to write to Secretaries of State within hours "What efficiency savings are there given levels of inflation??! Amazing bulls***" said a Whitehall source"

    I reckon we will end up similar to Sri Lanka and Lebanon. Economic collapse within weeks.

    I suspect the risk of contagion to global markets is too high and the grown ups will step in before that happens.
