As Liz Truss sacks Kwasi Kwarteng for implementing her own economic policies, millions of people are still waiting for a plan to tackle the cost-of-living emergency.
It doesn't matter how many Chancellors they get through, this Tory government is rotten to its very core.

Liz Truss has sacked Kwasi Kwarteng for implementing her policies.
Her position is totally untenable.
She has to go too — and she should take the whole rotten lot of them with her.

Personally I think Liz Truss, Kwasi Kwarteng, Suella Braverman et al are doing a really fine job for the Conservative Party
We just need a General Election so the rest of us can give them feedback

Reports that Kwasi Kwarteng is to be sacked. Would be our fourth shortest serving Chancellor in history. Would mean the UK has had four chancellors since July. In the middle of a cost of living crisis.
