Truss and Kwarteng LIED about independent report on their mini-budget. Should they resign?

Last Updated: September 30, 2022By Tags: , , , , , , , ,

It turns out the Office for Budget Responsibility provided Kwasi Kwarteng with a report on his mini-budget plans on September 6, the day he took office as Chancellor.

The OBR offered to update it with any extra information before Kwarteng’s ‘fiscal event’ on September 23 – and would have been able to provide this – but was not asked to do so.

Instead, Kwarteng refused to issue any OBR report on that day – claiming there was not enough time. This appears to have been a lie:

Truss is still refusing to publish the OBR’s assessment of her plans until November 23 – nearly three months after it was written.

So Kwarteng has lied to the nation and Truss has compounded that lie by refusing to rectify it.

And the reason?

The OBR’s report would have damned the plans in the “fiscal event” as economic suicide. Truss and Kwarteng were told what their plans would do, and they produced them anyway. Shouldn’t they resign for deceiving us like this?
