“If Boris Johnson isn’t going to do his job, why do we pay his salary?”

Jack Monroe: this is an old image but it’s probably the best one This Site has.

Food campaigner and writer Jack Monroe was asked to comment on the cost of living crisis by talk radio channel LBC.

She used the 10-minute (or so) slot to take aim at the Conservative politicians she (rightly, in my opinion) considers responsible.

So on the current prime minister, she said, “If Boris Johnson isn’t going to do his job, why do we pay his salary?”

Rishi Sunak, she said, could afford to take the “luxury position” of waiting to see how the crisis turns out, “because things are going to turn out fine for him.”

Kwasi Kwarteng and Nadhim Zahawi’s meeting with energy firm representatives came to nothing and was “gesture politics”.

On Tories generally, she said the only possibilities that occurred to her were that they were either benefiting directly from the crisis, incompetent, or simply didn’t care.

Meanwhile, while prices (and profits) quadruple, the poorest people – including people with disabilities – are worried that they will die.

    Italian TV showed boris johnson getting heckled by a British holiday maker at the airport shouting “get back and do your job you ponce!” this is his second holiday less than a week after the first.

  2. Marcus de Mowbray

    I have been wondering for a while if JRM is fronting truss and sunak competition as a front while all evidence of borifice’s crimes, fraud and corruption are destroyed, while he is ordered to stay abroad on holiday. Then later no winner will be declared and borifice will be put back in No 10 with a clean sheet.

    1 or 2 days ago JRM denied johnson would return to 10, so this makes my scenario MORE likely!
