It’s Done!

Wednesday, 2 November 2022 — MintPress News

Its doneFormer British Prime Minister Liz Truss is reported to have texted the words “It’s done” to US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken just minutes after the Nord Stream explosion.

That month, the British Navy trained the Ukrainian military in the use of underwater drones.

Russia has today summoned the British Ambassador to explain.

Whatever happened to Liz Truss?

The most intriguing question with regard to Liz Truss’ resignation as the prime minister of Britain after a mere 44 days in office is this: what is it about her economic programme that the “market” (read “finance capital”) found unpalatable? At its core after all was tax-cuts for the rich, which the “market” should have lapped up. True, the tax-cuts were to be financed through a fiscal deficit which the “market” generally does not like; but since the fiscal deficit was meant to finance transfers to the rich, and not any direct stimulation of aggregate demand by the State, there should have been little objection from the “market”. Some have suggested that since the tax-cuts were “unfunded”, that is, financed by a fiscal deficit entailing a sale of government bonds, the proposal introduced uncertainty about the future course of the bond rate which made “investors” dump government securities, sharply raising the bond rate and creating panic in the “market”. But that is precisely the question which needs to be answered: even before any actual sale of government securities for financing a fiscal deficit had occurred, why did the “market” panic? And if it expected higher rates then that should have led to a strengthening of the pound-sterling with financial inflows occurring into Britain, rather than a collapse of the pound-sterling as we actually saw.

The wasteland of British politics

Mary Elizabeth Truss, currently UK’s prime minister

When an ugly power play marks the end of the career of a phenomenally successful politician, it presents a painful sight. From all accounts in the British press in the most recent weeks, it was clear that the night of the long knives was approaching for the most photogenic prime minister Great Britain and Northern Ireland ever produced — Liz Truss.

UK Crony Capitalism: Caught in a Cycle of Despair and Exploitation

Tuesday, 6 September 2022 — Craig Murray

So the UK today gets its fourth successive Tory Prime Minister, despite the fact the previous three all crashed in failure, even in their own terms.

After presiding over crippling austerity as a policy response to Gordon Brown’s massive handover of public money to the casino bankers, David Cameron’s attempt to control the lunatic right of his party by offering a Brexit referendum backfired spectacularly. Theresa May was brought down by that same right wing when she attempted to devise a Brexit deal which allowed for a sensible trading relationship with the European Union. Johnson realised that governing from the far right was the only way to handle the Conservative Party, but the lies and corruption of his government led to him being quite exploded, like Bunbury.

RIP Great Britain

Monday, 5 September 2022 — Moon of Alabama

On July 7, when Boris Johnson finally stepped down as Prime Minister of great Britain, I wrote:

current poll says that party members would favor the current defense secretary Ben Wallace. But that does not mean they will get him as one of the two candidates to vote on as the MPs have the say over that choice.

Johnson may try to get someone elected who would look worse in office than he did. Liz Truss is a good candidate for that.

Liz Truss — Fule Britannia

Wednesday, 17 August 2022 — theplanningmotivedotcom

Could there be a worse Prime Minister than the boisterous buffoon Johnson? Yes, the dull lampooned Truss. A party which is sacrificed to dumb down society by using the dream of Brexit to prevent a left-wing alternative, ends up paying a high price. First Johnson then Truss. With “no handouts” Truss, the Tory Party is about to elect its final grave digger.

Failure in Moscow: Liz Truss Loses Britannia’s Way

Thursday, 17 February 2022 — The New Dark Age

By Dr. Binoy Kampmark

Incompetent politicians and diplomats are on the level with ill-prepared generals fighting current wars with dated methods.  They err, they stumble, and they may well be responsible for the next idiotic slander, misfire or misunderstanding.  UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss is synonymous with Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s idea of groping diplomacy.  Graceless, all confusion, and much ignorance besides, she has been given the task of howling in the Kremlin’s direction, warning that no invasion of Ukraine will be tolerated by Global Britain.
