About this deal

Eventually I can see them struggle to pass key government measures (e.g. budget) and collapse, to which the only answer is a new parliament. Tory MPs know they are a spent force and enough of them are so jaded they won't fight hard to stave off the inevitable. All the other major economies in the G7, including France and Germany, recovered strongly enough to be larger than they were in February 2020... And even as a nation we have freely selected a certain path that caused the pound to crash and we weren't forced by Markets to capitulate and abandon Brexit. Despite the negative reaction from Markets and from industries affected we're pressing on, obviously because there's the mandate from the public. Which is another reason Truss and Kwarteng have had to climb down, I would have thought - they don't have anything they can point to to say "look, here's why we're doing this, because you all voted for it". Like Russia, China has made little secret of its disdain for Truss’s hawkish approach towards Beijing, and her victory is “likely leading to a ramping up of anti-China rhetoric that will solidify years of rising tensions”, said Nikkei Asia. It is a way of finding out the direction of the wind at a lower cost, which is why wind vanes have been used for a very long time, in particular, to find out the cardinal origin of the wind, i.e. whether it comes from the North, South, East or West.

Some assembly will be required.As our weathervanes are decorative and handmade from heavy-duty iron, they will not respond in the same way as a wind measurement device or a lightweight sheet steel alternative. When installing, please ensure your location does not obstruct air flow and refer to our comprehensive guide on fitting and positioning for more information. Politicians in eastern Europe, meanwhile, who openly applaud the UK for its tough stance towards the Kremlin, have been “unreservedly warm”, said Adler. Ishaan Tharoor in The Washington Post wrote: “It seems Truss’s defining attribute may be a certain brand of political opportunism,” adding that she “will struggle to muster Johnson’s irrepressible – or delusional, critics would contend – optimism”. Disgraced, but going away? -Boris Johnson According to its definition, a wind vane is nothing more or less than a metal plate that moves around a vertical axis and is positioned on top of a building or roof to indicate the direction of the wind.

There's been lots of superficial appreciation of "sensible" Jeremy Hunt coming in to save the day, however his new version of austerity will be opposed in one way or another by MPs from all parties. There are loads of bitter ex-Ministers who aren't afraid of causing trouble and since "getting Brexit done", the Tories have lost their unifying rasion d'être.

European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen offered her obligatory congratulations but added that she wanted a “constructive relationship” with Truss, “in full respect of our agreements”. This last point was reiterated by European Commission vice-president Maros Sefcovic, who has been leading the Brussels side in talks on implementing the Brexit arrangements.I suspect it is about damage limitations in the first situation if someone can reduce Labours lead by 10 or more pts that is a lot of MPs that still have their jobs even if the Tories lose overall. Then there is also the fact that Labour need to be ahead by about 13 pts of to over tun the boundary changes so if the polls are more like 20 pts to labour then there is only 7pts in it to create a hung parliament. The BBC’s Europe editor, Katya Adler, reported that “off the record – European politicians view Truss’s words as a political gaffe, ‘ill-befitting the future leader of one of the world’s most powerful nations’, as a senior EU figure said to me.” Quote from: Butchers Blind on October 17, 2022, 10:28:45 AMIt's a laughably depressing situation where the country isn't run by the actual PM but by Jeremy Cunt. The money men seem somewhat appeased though and that is of course what matters. While Beijing has yet to issue a formal statement on her appointment as prime minister, a prominent Chinese journalist offered a similarly pessimistic view of the UK’s future under Truss. Meet the new health secretary and deputy prime minister - a music and football-loving Tory MP with a reputation for partying as hard as she works...

A tendency to arrogance – but also undoubted cleverness – is a common theme that many people who have worked with the new chancellor seem to report. This was the case even among fellow Tories, before he angered them with his politically and economically explosive mini-budget. its weirdly gratifying to me that its more and more a matter of general acceptance that market capitalism is a cult-like ideology and its adherents follow moral and speculative tenets rather than evidence or experience

As she's grilled about her new job, she suddenly seems distracted as she grabs for her mobile phone. Quote from: Ferris on October 18, 2022, 01:01:22 PMI often think about the mentality of people who want to be in charge. It is so alien to me.
