Totally agree, except for the four bathroom bit. We have four "adults" in the house and one bathroom (about to become two but could do with even more ). I suspect No10 doesn't suffer from this problem especially when Carrie was in residence.

Re: Updated: Boris resigns as party leader

I wonder what new fruit the magic money tree will bear tonight during the Sky News debate as there're 160,000 voters in need of a bribe after today's news of another interest rate rise, the prediction of inflation well in double figures, energy bills rising possibly every quarter and projected negative growth (recession) through to the end of next year. I'll never stop being surprised just how much the country can afford when it matters despite us being apparently broke .

Re: Updated: Boris resigns as party leader

The BBC News Economic Editor pointed out today's BoE statement means the £30 billion headroom with Truss keeps spending on tax cuts and spending commitments will be swallowed up.

Is Truss still promising 2.5% growth this year?

When did she promise that? 2.5% is a target that needs to be met by the next election or at least 2025, I thought.

The BOE has forecast a financial crisis for the UK today. Where are the PM and our Chancellor ? Having their jolly hols....
What a blankety blank shambles of a 'government'. ,

Re: Updated: Boris resigns as party leader

Everyone has holidays, how is it a "shambles" - what exactly do you think they are going to do today they they cannot do in a few days time ?

It only ever seems to get shaken when it suits them.

In fairness, it is August which traditionally is a slow news month so a good one for Ministers to take off.

Re: Updated: Boris resigns as party leader

I'm sure inflation at more than 13% will also push up the cost of foreign holidays, so you can't blame the PM and Chancellor for getting away before the mess they've helped create fully hits prices.

Get a grip FFS. Two people have gone on their hols, they are entitled to them, if they were still here, that would not still have satisfied you either. You’re just whinging for the sake of whinging, as per usual.
