Truss is Tanking

The last election was about Brexit, this one won’t be.
It will be if Labour get in. Starmer says he wants Brexit to work which implies not leaving the mess as it currently is. I would expect significant changes to current trading arrangements and some alignment with the single market and customs union. Remember, most people who voted Brexit still have no clue what the SM and CU are still won't know what is going on. So long as brown people aren't mentioned it will be fine.

That's true but it isn't what we were discussing, or at least not what I am discussing.

Brexit is part of why the economy is crap. No one is stating that we should fight the next election on brexit. These two points don't have to be conflated.

I am a remainder, Brexit only helped to embolden Putin, it was a big mistake.
I wouldn't be too sure about that. Immigration was THE big factor for many Brexiteers. Truss may well renege on that.

Well we now know that KamiKwazi lied when he said the OBR were unable to provide a forecast for his 'mini budget'. Today he and Margarine Thatcher have been to school to see the OBR. The OBR will now deliver a forecast to the dynamic duo on 7th Oct but Kami won't publish it until 23rd Nov.
I dunno. I'm starting to think they might be trying to hide something.
