My two thoughts on yet another Tory prime minister.

Given Truss has been tossing political red meat to the party members during the leadership campaign, and her capacity to ‘adapt’ in the interests of ambition, how quickly will she change tack in order to survive, once in office?

While Truss argues for small-state, low tax policies, and economic growth rather than helping those who are struggling (are the two mutually exclusive?), oil and utility companies look like they are profiteering, with dividends for shareholders and big payouts for bosses coming before investment in infrastructure and such.

Doesn’t look much like trickle down economics to me.
