If inflation is allowed to carry on as it is poorer people who will suffer most.
The BoE has at last done the right thing and signalled that it will do whatever is necessary to hit the required target of 2%. That said 2% is hardly realistic and they are now stating that 13% inflation will be with us for some time.
Added to the fact that other countries have been upping their interest rates we more or less have go the same way.
The hope is that the Ukraine war will end and the Taiwan situation does not escalate. There are external factors making the situation much worse than many would like
 
Utterly unfit for office, whoever wins.

I mean, maybe Rishi has seen the writing on the wall and knows that whoever wins they are inheriting an absolute shitfest and said "no thanks" so he is now systematically sabbotaging his own campaign :ROFLMAO:

At least they can't blame Labour for it though, after 12 years of soiling their own pants.

Go on Loopy Liz....it's as good as yours

It is *almost* beyond belief that they got to a place where they had no option but to jettison Johnson and are now about to put someone in charge who rivals him with the lying, incompetence, inconsistency and opportunism he showed. At what's worse, he had a certain low cunning that at least gave him the appearance of intelligence - even that is missing with this one.

Whatever part of the political spectrum you are on, good luck for the next couple of years.
 
Covid/Ukraine/Remainer coups etc
Oh yes, there will always be a scapegoat to blame for the Tories.

Those ones have served them pretty well in recent years. That and the demolition of the reputation of public sector workers who are utterly dreadful, lazy and ungrateful so and so's, after the Government very generously awarded them 10 years of relative term pay cuts. They find it perplexing that there is such a recruitment crisis after all they've done for them 🤷‍♂️

This lot aren’t conservatives at all, they’re just cynical opportunists. Johnson even insulted the Archbishop of Canterbury and top judges - he was probably rude to the queen too
 


Jesus f**king Christ.

I think that sums up this whole sorry state of a leadership contest. People in that crowd probably absolutely lapped that up.

Just awaiting the chief apologist to pop up and defend what he said.

My word the "liberal" wing is doing a lovely line in misogyny and envy.

In hot news - politicians lie - they all do. :ROFLMAO:

For the younger folk out there here's a reminder of what a serious political looks like.


The political colossus that is Gordy............

In 1999, Chancellor Gordon Brown sought to sell off 401 tonnes (56%) of the UK’s gold reserves. The logic was that gold wasn’t being used as a safe haven as much as it had been before and that foreign currencies like the US Dollar and the imminent Euro would generate much better returns.
It is somewhat ironic that Gordon Brown’s attempts to make as much money as possible from a staggered sale resulted in over $100 million less for the gold compared to when the sale hadn’t been announced, but it’s damning just how much more that gold would have been worth further down the line. Gold was $921 per ounce early in May 2009, which would put the gold sold at $11.8 billion in value - $8.3 billion more than Brown got. The 20-year price rise is worse still, with gold currently at $1,279 per ounce. This would make the gold bullion worth $16.4 billion - $12.9 billion more than was received in 1999.

Hello Mr Hindsight.

I'm old enough to remember when applying hindsight was a bad thing.
