  • I hope the whole world sees right through them all - these Tory swines have finally decided to grow a backbone and resign (and it is inevitable that Boris will follow), and there'll then be a massive fight over which of the spineless, principle deprived twerps replaces him.

    • I don’t see how Boris can survive this one. Boris has lied and cheated his way through life and tried to run government exactly the same way. We all know it isn’t working, has never worked, and shamefully this is how we ended up with Brexit - Boris telling lies and fooling the public.
      I have a bad feeling about this.

        Frustratingly, we've now ended up with an opposition leader in Kier Starmer who has publicly stated that he will not try to change Brexit - which I think is devastating (though I'm hoping he's doing it to make his election more palatable to those who voted for Brexit).

        I really hope he we do one day find our way back to the European Union, on better terms - the European Union needs to change (no doubt, it's an imperfect institution) but every economic and social indicator proves we are so much better in than out.

        • UK economic outlook has deteriorated, Bank of England warns

          The economic outlook for the UK and the rest of the world has "deteriorated materially", the Bank of England has warned.

          Energy and fuel costs are rising rapidly around the world, pushing up prices in general more quickly.

          However, UK banks are in a position to weather even a severe economic downturn, the Bank said.

          It told banks to keep more money in rainy day funds to ensure they can weather any storm.

          The Bank's comments came in its latest Financial Stability Report.

          International forecasters such as the IMF and OECD have said Britain is more susceptible to recession and persistently high inflation than other Western countries, all of which are grappling with energy and commodity market shocks.

          While the Bank said the UK's banking sector was well-placed to cope with a severe downturn, it said banks must increase the amount of money they set aside to absorb shocks. Starting a year from now, banks will be required to set aside a sum equal to 2% of their assets as a buffer, as opposed to the normal 1%.

          The Financial Policy Committee said it could vary the rate in either direction depending on how the global economy pans out.
          Inflation hit

          Households have come under increasing pressure in recent months, as energy, food and fuel prices soar.

          In April, domestic energy bills jumped after the price cap was increased by 54% to 1,971 for the average household.

            I don’t think we’ll ever go back into the EU - not under current rules and all our previous concessions would never be put back on the table.

            Starmer should be moving towards the centre in order to win Tory voters. It’s exactly how Blair did it and he still remains the last leader to win an election for them.

            I have a bad feeling about this.

              • So according to BBC News, the 1922 Committee elections are next week and the assumption is the winners will vote to change the rules around the twelve month wait between votes of no confidence.

                So Boris is going and we will probably have a new Prime Minister in September.

                                  • Nadhim Zahawi appointed chancellor.
                                  • Steve Barclay will be replacing Sajid Javid, becoming the new secretary of state for health and social care.
                                  • Michelle Donelan is the new secretary of education, replacing Nadhim Zahawi's old role.
                                  I think Boris has appeased Zahawi - the big job of Chancellor to keep him from resigning.

                                          In terms of the government, that figure appears to be 30 people (!!!) - Wikipedia kindly has a list: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List...hnson_ministry

                                              • I think the fact that the new Chancellor hasn’t actually started his job yet but has already been wheeled out to do press interviews just says it all really.

                                                They’ll sent Boris to Ukraine within the week for another round of PR, just watch.

                                                I appreciate Boris has had a very busy and stressful time as PM, but nobody would ever forget being informed of allegations of sexual misconduct made against a colleague. It’s just impossible.

                                                Anyway. Looking forward to PMQs - I wonder what Teresa says about deciding to leave with dignity

                                                • So who do we think will win a leadership race?

                                                  I don’t want Sunak or Javid. Jeremy Hunt came second last time, maybe he still has support? He never struck me as PM material though.
