An emergency budget is due on September 23. Liz Truss’ government will borrow £150bn to give to the already engorged energy companies. Kwarteng, the Chancellor, will further redistribute wealth to the rich, whilst speaking about the importance of growth with no policies to achieve it. The people pick up the tab.

The death of Margaret Thatcher is being shamelessly exploited by her Tory successors, including by awarding her an entirely inappropriate national funeral. This is all in the service of presenting the most divisive British Prime Minister of the 20th century as the most successful post-Churchill Tory leader, an electoral wizard, a paragon of statesmanship, the flame-bearer of liberty and ‘freedom’, a feminist icon and an innovative policy maker.
None are true.
