Director of yet another secretly-funded ‘think tank’ says what? https://t.co/E22M002sbT

Remarkably, there is no catastrophe of Liz Truss’s creation that cannot be made worse by Liz Truss talking about it.

What’s happening now isn’t an aberration, it’s a culmination.

I’m trying to retreat from my recent & uncharacteristic sweariness on Twitter but, goodness gracious me, it’s hard sometimes… https://t.co/SnsnmaiiNC

I think we’re in one of those historically, constitutionally *and* politically significant periods where Parliament must act to protect the population from government. The problem is that the population’s depending on politicians who waved through Boris Johnson’s myriad offences.

I confess I sometimes questioned my conviction that secretly-funded Tufton Street lobby groups masquerading as ‘think tanks’ were dangerous & disgusting. Mostly, I think, because so many people I respect treated them as trusted contributors. There’s no joy in being proved right.

The calculation must surely be that releasing the OBR report would have a *worse* effect on the pound & the markets than continuing with the secrecy & obfuscation. When you look at what the secrecy & obfuscation did to the pound & the markets last week, this truly beggars belief.

I met two charming Hounslow councillors tonight. One Labour, one Tory. The first just got back from their first ever party conference, the second is heading off to his tomorrow. It’s hard to imagine how different their experiences will be.

What an absolute treat to have Sarah Miles do a Q&A after a screening of The Servant at the inaugural #ChiswickInFilm festival. Could have listened to her all night. Huge congratulations to @TheChiswickCal & co for organising it all & @ChiswickCinema for hosting. On all weekend.

Johnson completely destroyed any claim the Conservatives could lay to probity, ‘family values’ or law & order. Truss & Kwarteng have torched any claim to fiscal responsibility. It’s hard to see what’s left.

More than six years after the Brexit vote, the Daily Mail gives a full page to Daniel Hannan to explain why he has a better grasp of everything currently happening than Mark Carney, the Bank of England, the Economist, the IMF, the 'markets', credit agencies, the OBR, the IFS...

If you pretended to believe that explaining why any other leader would be twenty points ahead of May in 2018 somehow meant you also believed any other leader would be twenty points ahead of Johnson in 2021, you're currently being crucified by your own idiocy. And it's hilarious.

The failure/refusal of either Truss or Kwarteng to address what the Bank of England did yesterday, with some success, is just incredible. The central bank intervened to limit the damage being done by government policy & the government continues to insist that the policy is great.

Tonight's vaccine misinfo from @GBNEWS. Neil Oliver seems sunk in anti-vax/WEF/Great Reset fantasies, and his show, like many on the channel, presents bizarre conspiracy theorists as authoritative commentators. @_johnbye has the receipts and info on how to report this to @ofcom. https://t.co/nAuBkoTNoY

Iain Martin’s wild assault on the wholly admirable Mujtaba Rahman is a stark reminder that the “acceptable face” of Brexitism can be every bit as ugly as all its other faces. Or to put it another way, perhaps there is no acceptable face of Brexitism. https://t.co/ccDcqvB6qr

This is just dreadful from @bbclaurak. All she had to say (when Truss repeats again that BoE sets interest rates) was "The Bank of England says that your budget means interest rates will have to go up farther and faster. Are they lying?" https://t.co/AklzQLRJMP

We all knew #Brexit was a colossal mistake, but that it would lead to this scale of political and economic mayhem was beyond our wildest imagination. Europe and the world needs the UK on so many fronts. Please get a grip and fix it. We need you back.

This is odd because we report in our story that Kwasi Kwarteng expressed surprise to Tory MPs that the market had reacted so violently to the measures https://t.co/79U201niD6

Of all the words written about the catastrophe of the past week, this letter in the FT sums it up best of all. And it’s worse than we might have thought.

Truss blames the Treasury for failing to anticipate and manage her budget disaster. That will be the same Treasury whose permanent secretary she fired, whose advice she ignored and who she accuses of peddling a failed orthodoxy 🤦 https://t.co/lHzUhHdN8E

For a plain explanation of what's going on, listen to @D_Blanchflower: 💥"Markets try to prevent amateurs from doing stupid things. But once you've done stupid things, once you've lost it, it's very hard to get it back. It's Pandora's box. You've opened it. Nobody trusts you."💥 https://t.co/K4rdFnsPdV

Liz Truss is “enjoying” implementing policies which cut taxes for the rich, caused the pound to plummet, sent mortgage costs soaring, nearly destroyed people’s pensions and will lead to a new wave of austerity, says key ally. https://t.co/wLCnOQoa1s
