Economist explains why Truss’s early choices have all been bad

Liz Truss: bad choices already mean we have another rotten prime minister.

This Site has a lot of time for Richard Murphy. As an economist, he seems to be on the side of the people, rather than selfish commercial interests, and he also seems to know the right way to run an economy.

That’s why I was very interested to read his thoughts on the early decisions of Liz Truss as Tory leader and prime minister.

He’s horrified:

That’s a prediction, right there: Truss will seek to dismantle the state.

So: Truss intends to bring in more pollution as part of a policy of climate change denial.

So: Truss is determined to worsen your money woes, not ease them.

This is fascism, by the way.

To survive, we have to do better than this. He’s saying that if Truss sees through her agenda, we won’t.

Mr Murphy also had this to say about Truss’s immediate spending plans with regard to the current cost of living crisis:

So now you know.

    It is blatantly obvious that Truss is in place to put the final nail in Britain’s coffin…unless every worker goes on strike until the tory criminal Cartel have been booted out of office, There will be a lot more suffering, and a lot more deaths.There will be no social housing, there will be no NHS, no social safety nets to help those suffering, workers will be just serfs with all rights removed….That will be just the start!
