Nadhim Zahawi apologises for chaos after Tory fiscal event

Last Updated: October 7, 2022By Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

It took him a while but he got to it in the end.

Nadhim Zahawi, challenged to apologise for the economic chaos his Conservative colleagues Kwasi Kwarteng and Liz Truss caused with their cack-handed ‘fiscal event’, tried everything he could to avoid saying a simple word: “Sorry.”

He failed.

He tried to say that prime minister Liz Truss had retracted her plan to end the top, 45p, tax rate.

He tried to say – to hilarity from the BBC Question Time audience – that Vladimir Putin would benefit from the UK being divided (as if that was any kind of moral reason to support a wrong decision by his bosses).

But in the end, he had to accept the inevitable:

It isn’t an apology from Truss or Kwarteng.

But is that yet to come?

    I’m actually quite looking forward to my break in Stratford.
    Nadhim Zahawi’s Warm Space in his heated stables will be great providing he doesn’t charge for the horse dung we’ll be using to cook with.
