Principles will be abandoned if they cost you anything....

£ has almost fallen to parity against the $.

Truss may be out in weeks at this rate.

I've never known a government do so much damage in so short a time.

Erdoganomics to be adopted by Truss. Sack BOE Governors that dare to raise interest rates. Claim low interest rates reduce inflation!

Wonder what rate I’ll wake up to.

Holy shit. She’s fucked the country forever. You don’t regain confidence in your currency once you’ve lost it

How come the Euro is also crashing against the dollar?

Has Truss fucked it so hard that now we’re crashing currencies in close proximity?

the $ is getting stronger, for a variety of reasons including that its the currency oil is traded in.

So yes, other currencies are falling.

BUT, the £ is also falling against other currencies, so its not just a global trend we have, we have the global trend, plus our stupid kama-kwasi economics.

GBP is crashing against the Euro too. XE shows a drop of 5% for the week and 8% for the month.

Are the Tories basically admitting they have no chance to win an election in 2 years so will do every awful policy they can bc they're doomed anyway.

Of people in the UK are so apathetic they won't even be a protest.

Pound now in complete free fall against the Dollar. Down 4% today.

So if the pound drops below the dollar tomorrow, do those Tory MPs threatening to turn on Truss actually do anything or is it all just talk?

It would be pretty funny to see her speedrun the remainder of her political career in little over a fortnight.

Don't think so cos its basically the salami strategy. Everytime it goes down they can just put it off unless it goes a bit further. Like we'll quit at 1:1 gets abandoned for 0.99:1 and so ona

It's a Remainer plot!

I think it'll take something drastic for them to get rid of her before the next GE. There'll be some in the party who know it's not a good look that they've gone through 3 leaders/PM's in six years and adding another will just be worse.

I can see pressure for her to call an early GE though

-7.13, -6.87 (in 2013) -6.88, -7.18 (in 2019)

I doubt it. They just have empty threats.

Let’s say they VONC her. That wing of the party can just put Kwarteng up instead and get him to the final two and the conservative members will just pick him.

It’s very hard for them to abandon her so quickly without pissing off the members that just picked her.

I can’t see them doing anything.
