Liz Truss is certifiable insane

I will prioritise tax cuts rather than handouts for people.
Whilst ‘normal’ people need to find £4200 a year which is £350/month (that’s only an average and will be far higher for lots of people)

She really is insane.
Basically, the correct approach is to take all excess profits off Bp and shell (as a starter)
Remove all the loopholes that Sunak kindly offered bp and shell in return for future investments.
Drain them of all gains made by this crisis.
This is a once in a generation issue that needs a collective government and business response to support their uk public.
Then, any company associated with oil, gas and energy delivery who have excess profits but also include companies like supermarkets who’ve benefited from Covid with excess profits over and above their expected profits.

This is a true collective approach of all in it together.

And any shortfall in funds to be borrowed by government because of the gravity of the situation.

The large majority of people in the uk need their energy bills subsidised until 1st April and keep it under review.
If the uk government wants to stand by the Ukraine then they need to stand by the uk public, the ones that are struggling to pay.

Tories financial backers include be hedge fund managers with client and personal money invested in these companies that are raking it in. This won't happen while you have a tory government in power

That’s why they are insane. Truss, Johnson, cleverly, Patel, nadim zahari, mourdant….strangest people ever. I’m tempted to say they are evil but I think it’s more that they are insane.
technically they're not insane, sociopaths and psychopaths are in full control of their thoughts and behaviour, they know their behaviour and words is socially unacceptable, they just choose not to care and do it anyway, because they simply don't give a f..k about societal norms

The simple(st) solution to to end the free market economy and for government to regulate big business, including windfall taxes.

The current government is absolutely abject when it comes to policy making; they are entirely passive, disengaged and impotent. Its little wonder this country is so fractured.

95% taxation on any investment or money transfer too and from tax havens.

Anyone still scared of socialism while at the same time getting absolutely screwed by increasingly unfettered capitalism (which is what's happening now) needs to go away and have a big rethink.

At this point it's like saying you'd rather stay in the room with the tiger because you're worried the room next door has a dog in it.
