Raven, Liz Truss at the moment we just do not know if we should trust or other wise. Rishi most members feel he was the one who brought down Boris. True or not they believe he was one that dished out party gate photographs and was plotting to become Prime Minister. He had a very good video already made before he resigned.

Thanks Hugh, I thought it was something along those lines.

The people didn't get chance to ask Rishi many questions, because after answering each question he spent more time attacking Liz, wasting time. Liz answered all question and did not mention him once, and answer far more questions. Just hope she his able to carry out her plans.
I haven't watched it, but from what you say that confirms my own choice of Truss as the best of a bad lot.
I live in hope that she'll be another Thatcher!

GB News for me, Alistair Stewart was really good presenting the husting
I agree completely.
I watch only GBNews now and certainly refuse to pay good money to watch BBC in the hope that they will eventually disappear!

IIRC that sentiment was expressed by some when one T. May became PM. She talked the talk initially and it was only later that the forked tongue was revealed.

Very appropriate picture!
Yes, I never trusted May from the first day I saw her (though at that time she didn't appear to be a lizard).

She was certainly a complete waste of time and the worst Tory PM we have ever had. Liz will be has strong has MT. at the same time very different. MT surrounded her self with men no women, Liz I believe will have at least 2 on the front bench Kemi one of them.

The self-promoting video that Sunak released had taken several weeks to create.

When I was in a Zoom meeting, which included our MP & a Liz Truss supporting Cabinet Minister a couple of weeks ago, it was confirmed, to those of us who could read between the lines, that the majority of Tory Party members wouldn't piss on Sunak if he was on fire.

Of course, they weren't the words that were used.

I read variety of stuff on Quora most days. Recently there have been lots of these adverts littering some of the feeds I look at. Now I mentioned a while back that I thought he smiles too much so is it just my opinion or does anybody else think these just look smarmy?

The last time I saw a politician this smarmy & always grinning was back in 1997.

And we didn't do too well under his leadership.

I have noticed that both candidates use the phrases 'targetted help, 'help for the poorest' help for the vulnerable' quite liberally, so those of us with private pensions can whistle Dixie & look after ourseleves, just like we've always been expected to do.

I neither pay income tax nor qualify for pension credit.  I'm far from alone in this. Reducing income tax, or giving means tested benefits won't help my OH and I.

I suppose I should support a reduction in income tax, as that would at least benefit my kids.

I'm waiting to see what the CPI figure is in September.

It was 10.1% in July.

We got cheated out of the "artificial" 8% so doubtless they'll find some way of reneging. Anyway any percentage of next to SFA still isn't much.
