Kwarteng leaving USA early for emergency meeting with Truss. Smart money on him being sacrificed along with some elements of the mini budget. Sunak must be laughing on the back benches. He couldn't have written the script better. Betting now that the Tories will get behind Mordaunt as PM with Sunak re-installed as chancellor. What a cock up.

Breaking news, kamiquazi Kwarteng is no longer chancellor of the exchequer, he’s been thrown under the bus by his best friend and neighbour Liz Truss.
And all after a government spokesperson claimed this morning that his was doing a great job with the economy.
So we’ve had to swallow excuses like the queens death, the war in Ukraine and the global markets for the disastrous mini budget (sorry I meant fiscal event), but now it seems it was the chancellor all along, but under no influence from his best mate Truss.
In the meantime millions of people face severe hardships for the next 10 years or so.

Kwarteng the sacrificial lamb, then.

He wasn't nicknamed "Kamiqwazi' Kwarteng for nothing!

I'd remind you that a few weeks ago, prior to the announcement of the mini budget, a photo op was released of Kwarteng and Truss around the Cabinet Table purportedly discussing the budget. It was sadi by some at the time, that it was odd that the PM was working on the budget. the PM normally stays out of the way. 

This photo has now become very inconvenient for Truss !

A brave man to take on that role, I hope that his appointment has the right effect on the markets but only time will tell.  Just remember what his nickname was when he was the health minister in Theresa May’s cabinet.

Must have been an interesting conversation between Truss and Kwarts: "It's not you, Kwasi, it's me..."

So Hunt has already suggested that there may well (which means definitely) be cuts to the NHS budget to help to repay some of the borrowing Kamikuazi instigated in his mini budget.  
So we have an NHS that’s already been decimated by the Tory government over the last 12 years and is haemorrhaging both doctors and nurses at record numbers due to the pressures of working with both arms tied behind their backs, that’s likely to lose even more as the pressures increase even more and the likelihood of money being made available to give them the pay rises that they deserve.  
Remember this Tory government clapped for them every Thursday evening, but since then has shafted them yet again.

Really need a General election...the tories are a disgrace...4 chancellors in 4 months come on....and Truss news conference was diabolical 
In 1972, Roy Bergiers scored that try and said "that was for you lofty"

The NHS has been destroyed by 12 years of these rich idiots. Simple example of waiting 3 to 4 weeks to get someone to take a simple blood test .....a blood test....10 years ago you could walk into Morriston Hospital pick up.a waiting ticket and be done within 20 minutes....easy peasy.......3 weeks minimum for Gorseinon Hospital...a little place in a small village.....
If you have private health care it don't mean a thing to you.and that's the point...screw NHS let's go back to 1900s and pay for treatment.....disgusting and it all.started with that Thatcher bitch who made the Country selfish me me me me converts.

Hunt as chancellor is to all intents and purposes a coup from the majority of Conservative MPs against a minority leader. Truss asked Kwertang to do what she pledged she would to win the Conservative leadership campaign. He did. The public and markets responded negatively and so she was forced to sack her friend Kwertang and replace him with Hunt, who is going to undo practically everything Truss/Kwertang did. Truss had no other policies, except pro-fracking, so she essentially now has nothing. What she declares from now on means nothing because as she does not have the support or confidence of the majority of her MPs, all decisions will have to be approved by Hunt who could well emerge as the person actually running the country.

That’s spot on, Truss is PM in name only, but Hunt is effectively the PM as he now calls all the shots.  She has no credibility left with her cabinet or backbenchers and Hunt will now be seen by many Tories as a safe and stable pair of hands, who they hope will see them through to the next GE.

Truss is done. No authority ...government is being run by Hunt now....pathetic state of affairs.
Andrew Marr says she's toast and he is never far from wrong.
