    Default the mini budget up-date

    the mini budget that has caused such consternation amongst the financially astute of the sites readers and obviously the money markets around the globe, Whilst it is agreed the chancellor Kwarsi Kwareng is inexperience in such a post and he is holder of only a degree in hospitallity management that has lead to some doubts of his ability to carry out the task ahead of him, let me assure those whom are concerned that the husband of shadow chancellor rachel reeves of the labour party a mr nick joicey is employed in this goverments economic planning.as a critical figure of that team.

    Polls mean nothing under such circumstances.

    AS to the treasurer, he has to answer to treasury the ones who actually deal with all financial matters in any democratic nation.

    John the UK has not been a democratic nation for many years. If the UK has approx 55 million people who can vote how come the last 3 UK PM's have been voted in by 160,000 conservative membership.
    If a PM is booted out by his own party a general election should called.

    Look at Scotland the SNP were elected and increased the number of seats and still Westminster refuse the will of the Scottish people a referendum on Independence.

    Then you have the D U P crowd who refuse to accept a SF first minister in Stormont, they say that is because of the Protocol.

    Democracy is dead even in the US the out going president encouraged his mob to storm the Capital 5 dead but the Donald is still free for NOW.

    In 2014 the SNOP agreed a once in a lifetime vote, that was democracy in action.
    Because Sturgeon didn't agree she has been whining for another vote. If she loses as the Polls indicate, will it be the best of three?

    ........and for those of you excited about Sir Beer Korma's 'splendid' performance at the Liverpool Labour Party Conference,you will of course believe him when he assures you he has your interests at heart,and has absolute sympathy for you with the impending mortgage rates rises.

    Now,our Sir Keir of course ,bless his little Marxist cotton sox ,resides in a modest (for London) 1.8million townhouse in Camden Town,owns at least 3 other properties,is worth an estimated 7.7 million in personal wealth,earned from his PM salary and lawyers'salaries,and a wife working in the NHS-so as you can imagine the family will struggle along with you working class people to pay the mortgage and pay the bills,and he is thinking of you.

    I do hope though that Sir K. will manage to put just a little aside to quaff some of that preferred- by -the -left elite Socialist Champagne with it's distinctive red label.

    Anyway,I am puzzled by his acceptance speech at succeeding fellow comrade Jeremy in 2020;- "I intend to refrain from scoring party political points".... Really? He has done nothing but!

    How many political parties has Liz Truss belonged to? How many times has she U turned on political issues, She was a remainer, then became a Brexiteer, like so many who went on to become Tory PM's
    Starmer became a QC 2002. He was called to the bar 1987. He was a defence lawyer so likely he made a few quid. He has also had several books published. Yes in his early days he was a solid leftie but is now described as soft left.

    Were does it say in the rule book that a Labour politician cannot become wealthy?
    I would hope and imagine he is a decent and reasonably honest man. I am sure the Tory owned press will be doing there utmost to find some dirt on him. Well to date they have nothing on him, certainly If you stacked up what the likes of Boris and Cameron try to get away with!!!!!

    Ah; Politics, Politics. How it keeps us working people busy, and none of us able to penetrate into the inner sanctum of all the conniving that goes on behind closed doors, if we could we would find that the really crafty ones are the ones who end up with the big bickies, just look at the former PMs of both parties in the UK, and in a smaller way here in Aus. It's like the old song,as they leave parliament singing Money Money Money.

    I was called to the bar at the tender age of 16 to buy a pint, never made it like Steer Clear though.

    The public dop not elect the PM, that person is chosen by the party to be leader, if they win the erection they then become PM.
    So your argument about only 1600 does not hold water James.

    As to the riot in USA, most in power knew it would come but did nothing to prevent it.
    The National Guard was called out too late, they should have been there from the start.
    Not my words but those of a relative living in California.

    It has often been said we get the gov we deserve, simply because most voters are easily swayed by hollow promises given by the parties.
    Policies the public think are true, and yes they may be but the parties do tell the public how they will be acted upon.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    John no offence , think you must still be at that bar, Keir Starmer not Steer Clear , we have an Election maybe some to get an erection while voting in an election. The 160,000 tory party membership, heaven forbid if most of the members members during the election had an erection. Let's face it the new PM is not much of a looker really.
