SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon yesterday exposed the rabid hypocrisy at the heart of her policies, claiming she was capable of being a “friend” of Liz Truss who would act in the interests of the greater good.
The mask slipped as she answered the next question: “I loathe the Tories and everything they stand for.”
Could the specter of this professional complaints officer, who joins forces with Labor to hand Keir Starmer the keys to No10, be enough to wake the quarreling Tories to the real threat they face?
As for Sir Keir, in the polls he rides on the back of government mistakes rather than his own talent.
Even yesterday, despite railing against the ‘kamikaze’ mini-budget, Labor had to concede that the bulk of Mrs Truss’ tax cuts would indeed be retained.
Cabinet minister Nadhim Zahawi – who has shown his crisis competence by launching the vaccine – is right to remind his Tory colleagues of the need for unity if they are to implement their growth agenda and avoid forgetting the election.
If they don’t listen to him now, it’s their own fault for haunting the land with the dark dual roles of Sturgeon and Starmer.
THE energy deal ministers hope to strike with Norwegian gas company Equinor is a delicate balancing act.
It is true that if we sign a 20-year contract when supplies are tight and prices are high, there is a risk that we will be forced to overpay.
But it also makes us shudder to think of the alternative risk of returning to the blackouts of the 1970s – with added damage now that our economy is so dependent on computers and the internet.
Business Secretary Jacob Rees-Mogg must lower the price and avoid a destabilizing market reaction.
Most importantly, any deal must be coupled with a long-term strategy to make the UK more self-sufficient through a mix of nuclear, renewables and fracking.
We must never again let the whims of a monster like Vladimir Putin put us in this weak negotiating position.
WE would be surprised if the number of complaints from customers who were outraged at being called “young people” or “ladies and gentlemen” weren’t needle-in-a-haystack proportions at tube bosses.
But that hasn’t stopped Transport for London staff from not using the words, along with the bizarre ban on the word ‘accident’ in favor of ‘collision’.
By far the majority of the public does not want this pointless, infantilizing nonsense being foisted on them.
Just ask the leaders of the nanny council who helped The Sun reverse a ban on ‘Mum’ and ‘Dad’.
Let’s hope TfL does the same.
