Liz Truss: energy price cap is the new ‘vaccine roll-out’ excuse!

The UK’s new prime minister, Liz Truss, has settled on an explanation for her disastrous mini-budget and the way it crashed the UK economy.

What is it? “We had to help people with their energy bills.”

But that has nothing to do with the tax cuts she rolled out and the resulting collapse of the Pound!

It has nothing to do with the Bank of England having to save pension funds at a cost of £65 billion.


Robespierre is right, by the way – it is disgusting that we were told spending £3 billion to keep the Universal Credit uplift in place would be too expensive, when £65 billion – nearly 22 times as much – can be magicked up easily to save pension funds. There is no consistency.

Don’t let Truss get away with it, folks. If you’re an interviewer and she trots out that line, tell her it’s nothing to do with what’s happening to real people. If you are a real person and you get to talk to her on a radio phone-in or some such, do the same.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
