Wait so she is OUT because she wanted people to pay less taxes(and have more money that way??) and the banks got mad?

This article explains it fully. Tax cuts + irresponsible spending = market crash

She's out because her entire economic policy was exposed as completely and utterly stupid within days of her taking office. To the surprise of no one except herself and her chancellor, leaving her a lame duck with nothing to give.ย 

ย 

She almost wiped out the entire UK Pensions system and crashed the mortgage market because she wanted to cut taxes on the wealthy and pay for it through massive increases in borrowing. Borrowing isn't an unlimited money tree and the markets said no.

Oh wait so she did this for the rich? **** her then

Oops hid my post because Teen Idle replied first, but yeah basically.

ย 

There was some tax cuts for the less well off too, but it was all aimed at the wealthy primarily. They tried to calm the markets by promising to cut spending on the poorest too afterwards when the crisis started.

So the next leadership candidates have to get 100 MPs to nominate them by Monday, but is there even a single candidate that 100 Tories can agree on when the party is so divided? :rip:

ย 

These were the results of the first ballot of the last leadership contest and no-one got 100 votes from MPs, although Rishi was close:

ย 

Rishi Sunak - 88

Penny Mordaunt - 67

Liz Truss - 50

Kemi Badenoch - 40

Tom Tugendhat - 37

Anti-tofu and anti-human-rights activist - 32

Nadhim Zahawi - 25

Jeremy Hunt - 18

Well, Liz Truss won't be in the ballot anymore. I guess her 50 votes will be key; and they are bound to go to some rightwing messy candidate such as BORIS.

ย 

I think he coulg get to 100 easily.

Boris faced scandal after scandal for months, had massive embarrassing loses in safe by-elections, was humiliated in the 2022 local elections, and the GP hates him. You could claim Liz has reset all that, but he now faces suspension from parliament next month for lying about Party Gate, which is likely to trigger a recall election in his marginal constituency where he will lose his seat.ย I've no idea why some conservatives are so desperate to get him back. Scandals starting before he's even back in office.ย :ahh:

ย 

He will definitely do better in the polls than Liz was doing, but Starmer's landslide is safe for the time being, barring any future surprises.

ย 

ย 

The positive of having Boris back is that he'll be responsible for the Tories losing the next election. That'll stop all the "If we hadn't removed Boris we'd have won!!!" bs

This honestly just feels like we're screaming into a f*cking void. This country is a joke.
