I was on a train from Dresden to Prague a few weeks ago and I was talking to a couple of business type blokes from Finland and another from South Korea who lived in Berlin. Both of them thought very highly of Boris as a world leader and couldn’t understand why he’d been ousted. No idea what they would have thought of Liz.

 

 

 

Conversely, I've spoken with business people from China, Taiwan, Japan, France, Germany and the US who all thought Boris was a massive joke. One of the Far Eastern lot went as far as calling him Mr Bean (which she found hilarious for some reason) - the same woman, thinks that Truss looks evil

 

Ultimately, I suppose it depends what is, or isn't reported in their National Press - I know for definite all the "Partygate" stuff was widely reported in China and Taiwan (probably because they're still locking whole cities down if there is so much as a single case reported)

A good read,if not a little worrying.

"So much for taking back control – Britain is tumbling into a full-blown sovereign debt crisis | The Independent" https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/liz-truss-kwarteng-debt-crisis-andrew-bailey-b2200933.html

The visionaries will be along shortly to explain we’ll be better off in the long term, just need to give it time.

She's a one trick pony, constantly banging on that the average energy bill will be capped at £2.5k rather than £6k, but not acknowledging that mortgages are up by £5k/year.

No point having "cheaper" heating if you can't afford your mortgage.

They're not capped at £2.5k either. That's just the average household.

It's the way she's trying to link tax cuts with the fact that they're capping the unit price of energy that baffles me

I may be thick as fuck but where's the link?

Ah, I see you're part of the "Anti-Growth Coalition". You should be ashamed of yourself, traitor.

Aye. It's all well and good appealing to your Xenophobic base, until the subjects of your ire hear what you've been saying about them.
