Apparently she wants 2 internets; one for kids and one for adults.
Go on then Elizabeth, please begin to even try and explain how the fuck that's going to work then....

I really think a mass refusal to pay energy bills is the only way to stop them. 20 million households refusing to pay bills until the price cap is reintroduced is the only way this profiteering ends.
The price cap hasn't gone its just that they keep raising it. Kudos to the regulator for making it every 3 months now so we are likely to see another increase in January rather than have six months of security.

Its a redistribution of funds from the working classes to the rich.

Yeah, I know that, I suppose I should have said reintroduce the lower price cap. It just feels that as they keep rising that there is no price cap at all. There may as well not be. But my main point remains, the only way to stop this criminal profiteering is a campaign of mass refusal to pay bills.

It’ll get to that point fairly soon, just because people literally have no money to pay bills

Sadly, you are probably right. It shouldn't and doesn't have to come to that though. It's a political choice to deliberately make people struggle.

It's a choice in as much as the Government's ideology has long been to have pitiful state support to individuals, to be outwardly spiteful where possible and they're perfectly happy for poor people to live miserable lives (a lot more people are now poor than in 2010, too).

But mostly it's a symptom of there being an absolute dearth of talent in the party, the pool was shallow to start with but everyone who was any good got purged in 2019. A collection of complete headbangers and cartoon characters (not in a good way) just don't have any solutions or ability to work on the fly to react to rapidly changing situations because by rights, they shouldn't be anywhere near where they are. So they just hide under a pile of coats and hope it'll be ok.

Levelling up..
View attachment 5784

I’m really struggling not to despise the people who voted for these idiots. It’s not helpful but I really struggle with the fact that 35% of the electorate would still vote for them.
Policy abandoned already.

Open mouth, think later. I honestly believed that the Conservative Party would vote for competence after the last shower.

Yeah, but who is "competence" out of the available candidates. The fact that Hunt gets presented in that way (but won't ever win because he's not a Brexit fanatic) when he was a shocking Health Secretary is telling.

On to Rees-Mogg.

He's admitted that he was wrong when he said that Brexit would not cause delays in Dover. Its the fault of the French however as they insist on doing what we do and check people when entering their state.

Also on Rees Mogg he rubbished Sunak's plans to cut taxes in a few years time as "suggesting there will be income tax cuts many, many years into the future is the finest fantasy". Forgive me if I'm wrong but wasn't he one of the advocates who stated that Brexit gains may not be felt for decades to come?

This the same Rees Mogg who insisted that there would need to be a GE if Boris were ever toppled? That one?

Only after he'd claimed that food and shoes would be cheaper (amongst much other bullshit).

Oh right, good. That fixes everything then.
Different names in the board room won't be changing the structure or ideology of BP. That will remain, as will the culture of taking aggressive ecological risks, and grotesque profiteering .

U turned on the public sector pay thing now which I suppose is a good thing. Fuck me though, thick as fucking mince.
