Whatever honeymoon period Liz Truss enjoyed as PM – we’d have to get a microscope out to measure it – the nascent PM appears already locked into a doom spiral with her poll ratings falling almost as quickly as the pound.
She’s had about as much to say as her chancellor did yesterday after Kwasi Kwarteng’s ‘mini’ budget sent the markets spiralling – basically, nothing – so these 17 tweets should help fill the void for a bit.

Traders are referring to Truss as “Daggers” – as in Dagenham, 2 stops past Barking…🤣🤣

It’s quite impressive how quickly Truss has unravelled. Even her worst detractors didn’t think she could fuck up so much, so quickly. It’s like a Guinness world record attempt for haplessness.
