Elizabeth Truss

useless right-wing think tank stooge

you will not be missed

Interesting to note that in the Daily Star’s contest about who would last longer between a lettuce or Liz Truss, the lettuce won. A meme that will haunt her forever.

Liz Truss

Peter principle

power beyond competence

so out of her depth

* Peter principle:

The Peter principle is a concept in management developed by Laurence J. Peter, which observes that people in a hierarchy tend to rise to “a level of respective incompetence”: employees are promoted based on their success in previous jobs until they reach a level at which they are no longer competent, as skills in one job do not necessarily translate to another.

Spectacle

Old warring factions

each one hungry for power

the gloves are off now

• The chaos left behind by Boris Johnson’s long-awaited resignation is resulting in an inglorious bun-fight for the Conservative party leadership… again.

A very poor quality field, most of them tainted with the corrupt Johnson regime, they lied for him let’s not forget. A real race to the bottom.

Last days of the Raj

Shallow victory

enough time to do untold

and lasting damage

* So, predictably, Dictator Johnson holds on to power for a little while longer. I have lost faith in him, our government and am horrified by the mess our country is in. Brexit, which Johnson championed, has been the ruination of our nation, as was predicted, but it is rarely mentioned in the media as a primary cause of the chaos in the UK.

I heard an interesting challenge to Brexiteers, the other day which was; “if Brexit were to end tomorrow, what would you most miss?” I only saw one answer which was “independence”. Well it has been a very high price to pay, coming in at twice the cost of the impact of COVID in the UK, so far.

Johnson and his cabinet seem intent on waging war on the decent citizens of this country, in the name of what exactly? I just don’t get it, and I don’t understand why his supporters put up with it. All too depressing.
