Someone with a long name will be along to explain how she will straighten the mess out. Even though they have no idea how to do it.

I doubt it's an accident. She'll just claim Labor or the SNP did something and the tubes will vote Tory again.

British Farkers, how would you compare this PM to Maggie?   Thatcher always seemed to be fairly bright when she wasn't sucking Reagan off.   Maybe this gal compares to Maggie the way TFG compares to Ronnie?   If so, that is some sad shiat there.

After taking so much chit from my Brit friends over Trump, I can burn the Brits over Boris and then this strumpet. I knew she was dumb before she got into office...had no idea she'd be this bad.

"Liz Truss mixes up 'basic facts' about £2500 energy price cap SEVEN times"

"Mixes up". Sure. It's totes normal for someone to keep "accidentally" giving false information multiple times after they know it's false.

Conservative thought is largely based on repeating the same lie enough times to convince themselves it is true.
Shame a large proportion of the British population are thick as shiate and think it too.

Well, we wouldn't want to use the word "lying", would we?  That would be judgmental and taking sides.

How long did it take the US media before they started calling Trump's lies "lies"?

I mean, if you got BoJo to drop like 10 stone, took him to a hairdresser & kept him from being a clown in public, you'd have Liz Truss.

I think the Tory leadership thought they could get Rishi Sunak elected PM by pitting him against the least qualified ambulatory jar of mayonnaise in existence, but the other Tory PMs were like "oooh! Mayonnaise <3"

Long past time we all everywhere stopped letting just anyone run for public office, especially now that they want to get into power just to destroy the system that elected them in the first place. Bad enough when all they wanted was corrupt cash.

Instead of just anyone, you make a list of all the humans in your country who have proven themselves dedicated to making the world a better place, from surgeons to teachers to authors to everyday people who performed heroic deeds.  Ask them if they would like to serve their country now, run for office.  A privilege, not a right.  No more sh*tstain scumbags in public 'service' who only want to help themselves.

Maybe we shouldn't tell every kid that they can grow up and be PM. (Or President, for us in the States.)

Hang on... "We were facing a situation where people could have had to pay energy bills of up to £6000"

£6000? Per... year? month? Either way, that is staggering.

why are you blaming the (now deceased) Queen Elizabeth 2 for who the voters elect?

or are you angry that she didn't just dissolve Parliament after Brexit and declare a monarchy?

Check out her anti-monarchy speech from back when she was a LibDem. She's certainly changed her tune.

Thatcher was a corrupt, bigoted, inept piece of shiat that lived longer than she deserved to.

Yet, in spite of that, it took Thatcher 6 years of dedicated effort to fark up our economy to the same degree that Truss did in 2 weeks.

Hey! Ronnie sucked Maggie's dick! It was bigger than his.

iheartscotch: But let's all ignore that shiat and do another pointless ceremony commemorating The Queen!


The ceremonies were not pointless. They served to distract the hoi polloi from the approaching disaster that is Liz Truss and her useless government. That's why Truss did 'er in.

ChimpMitten: Is this a car crash meaning something else like a biscuit is a cookie?


A "car crash interview" is a disastrous interview, usually given by politicians or the odd prince explaining why he doesn't sweat.

D135: It's like watching the Office but the boss is dumber and more cringeworthy.


No it's not. This is actually funny (Both the UK and US versions of The Office just made me cringe.)

ukexpat: Check out her anti-monarchy speech from back when she was a LibDem. She's certainly changed her tune.


But if the British public had decided to burn QE2's body and throw her family onto the pyre with her Truss would have been up there dousing the royals in petrol. She changes her views like she does her socks, to suit the moment.

Thatcher knew what she was doing, Truss does not. The former has gone to hell, Truss can follow.

Thatcher got lucky with the North Sea gas extraction, so there was a buffer to her bullshiat.

She's the ERG candidate, sorry, puppet, and will parrot whatever they want because she is flying the flag for them. She'll regurgitate their talking points and won't contribute a single original thought from her own head should one exist in there.

Interesting premise, but most surgeons can't reason their way out of a wet paper bag, and yet they are convinced that since they are good at one thing they are God's gift to the world at everything and anything.

No surgeons, no engineers.
