    He's a slimy odious ****.

    Have you watched Philp talk? Every time he stutters or gulps to pause you can hear the cogs in his brain working out the next cynical lie he's going to try and come out with.

    I watched him on Peston last night and listened to him with Ferrari this morning. Each and every time you can see him trying to remind himself of the script and the next bit of rehearsed spin.

    He's like that bloke in the Iraqi army who was telling the press there was nothing to worry about, how Saddam was winning while literally Baghdad was being bombed to **** behind him.

    I've seen him walk out of a house on his street that definitely isn't the one he lives at on more than one occasion

    Of course, nobody should draw any conclusions about that - after all, if he refuses to divulge how many houses are in his property portfolio in the arsiest way possible, he definitely won't be chatty about his home away from home...

    Not going to happen, of course, but the YouGov one could leave the SNP as the opposition! <laugh>

    From the BBC...

    After a week of turmoil following the government's tax-cutting mini-budget, Labour has taken a 33-point lead over the Conservatives, according to a YouGov poll for the Times.

    Poll voters have pretty much rejected Kwasi Kwarteng's proposals, with only 10% seeing the package as fair - which is down from 19% on Monday.

    Just 37% of 2019 Tory voters said they would stick with the party if a general election was held now, the poll showed.

    It is not a good result for Liz Truss either - with almost three times as many voters saying Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer would make the best prime minister.

    Also, asked whether Truss's leadership rival Rishi Sunak would have made a better or worse party leader - 44% said better and 13% said worse.


    It's not as if it's coming to an end either. The Bank of England may have temporarily withheld raising interest rates further, to protect the pension funds, but it can't last. Rates are about 3% too low and when they start charging up....there's going to be hell to pay.

    She can lie to us, but the B of E isn't having it...

    From the BBC:

    The Bank of England's chief economist has contradicted government claims that the UK's economic issues are part of an international crisis.

    Speaking at a conference in Northern Ireland, Huw Pill said the fall in the value of the pound and surging borrowing costs was partly a result of the government's economic strategy.

    "Over the course of the past week, there has be a significant re-pricing of financial assets. Part of that re-pricing reflects broader global developments," Pill said. "But there is undoubtedly a UK-specific component."

    He also warned the government's plan to cut taxes and increase borrowing will require the Bank of England to adopt a "significant monetary policy response" - likely signalling a fresh interest rate rise.

    Earlier, Prime Minister Liz Truss told the BBC that a "global crisis" had sparked the collapse in the pound's value.

    Just a thought: Liz Truss has to top Theresa May delivering a Tory conference speech as the set collapsed around her...

    The BBC has helpfully put all of Truss' local radio interviews together in one place:
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p0d3flmh

    She genuinely seems to believe that fuel bills have been capped at £2,500, for some reason.
    Nobody can have one higher than that, apparently. Batshit.

    Susanna Reid called out Philp on that lie this morning didn't she?
