Thatcher Tribute Act.

Thing is whatever one thinks of Thatcher (and I was too young to really have an opinion) you look at her ideology and government and it was developed by some pretty clever people both in terms of its background ideology, objectives and delivery, also see the long-standing (both before and after) political heavyweights who served in her cabinets. Compare these with Truss and the ideology driven but substance free zealots lightweights she is surrounded by, its all sound bite and bluster so I think to compare her to Thatcher does Maggie quite the injustice.

You'll only disappoint yourself cheering cabinet exits. Those coming in will be no better. 

Well, actually they might be better than Dorries. But that's a low bar.

I see that the two (why they couldn't go in a single one) private jets they have taken up to see Brenda are from a company owned by Steve Lansdown, coincidentally a Tory donor - benefiting donors even to the end.

The RAF have retired the fleet of aircraft used for such occasions. They are replacing them with the type used today. Centreline won the contract to provide aircraft and crew whilst the RAF pilots of 32 squadron are trained.

I see that Truss is now at Balmoral. I can imagine the conversation.

Queen : So who are you?

LT :I’m your next PM Ma’am

Queen : What’s your name?

LT : Liz Truss Ma’am

Queen: Liz, Elizabeth. That’s my name too. How jolly!!

Queen: So how are you going to help people with their bills?

LT : Help them? Me? Don’t be silly Ma’am

Queen: Good girl. By the way, do my subjects have to pay for stuff? How jolly!!

Queen: Anyway, not my problem. Fuck orf!
