Think the current split in the Tory party can be summarised as people who loved it when they got to say and do anything at all, and why does that have to end again? And those who have been tasked with restoring enough legitimacy that the whole political/financial system doesn’t completely collapse.
The problem is that the former group are the ones with the mandate from both the membership and the last election, and everything Sunak and his allies do is an attempt to elude that fact. Zahawi’s really just out there saying ‘c’mon, this is what they wanted!’
Yeah, 1) is such weak piss. Prices have got high, and they’re gonna stay high forever now, and you can’t afford to live anymore, but hopefully the rate at which those high prices get higher might slow down PS you will be even less able to live than now btw k tnx.
Grow the economy - negative growth is still ‘growth’ right?
Big fan of the idea that simply saying ‘We want this stuff to happen’ is on some level a policy framework. I want loads of stuff to happen, but that doesn’t constitute a framework if it’s not actually possible! Just government by saying shit, plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose
