Opinion: The NRM will miss the DGF

Now that’s it apparent that the Democratic Governance Facility (DGF) is closing in December 2022. This after baseless accusations and demeaning insults from the His Excellency President Yoweri Tibuhurwa Kaguta Museveni ahead of the General Election in 2021. Certainly, he that to control the narratives and in general ensure to silence his critics. While the DGF only did what it always has done, which is to support over 30 CSOs/NGOs who works on governance and civil education, which could have strengthen the society at large.

That’s why the closure of DGF will not only hurt a 100 people who has worked directly in the DGF. No, it will hurt the over 30 CSOs/NGOs who was directly funded by the DGF. Also, government entities and structures, which was also funded by the DGF. The DGF over the last five years has ensured a circulation of Shs. 15 trillion shillings. That’s a substantial amount of currency and monies that are taken out of rotation, which would be there to get domestic revenue for the state and ensure livelihoods of plenty. This will hurt service providers and those who is bound by contracts to the DGF and the entities it provided funds for. It is really compelling the damage the National Resistance Movement (NRM) has done here and it will feel it in 2023.

We know things was bad when the President suspended the DGF in February 2021. While he has lifted the suspension in June 2022. The DGF will not continue now and the regime will feel the losses. Just like the DGF together with NIMD used to support IPOD. Now, there are several other entities that is losing out. That will hurt the government and it’s institutions at large, but we know the President isn’t concerned about it.

The donors who made the agreement with Government of Uganda (GoU) to create the DGF in 2011, which happens to be Austria, Denmark, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the European Union might seek other partners or places to fund. Since, they are not welcomed or has the mechanisms to ensure development goals are met. Because, the donors has again to report to their citizens and taxpayers for the usage of funds. Which means they cannot just waste money and not prove any sort of value for money. That is squandered here, because the DGF was an organization and an umbrella organization, which kept it all organized and good oversight over it.

We know the national budget still needs external funding sources, though the bloated budgets are projecting more domestic revenue by any given year. Though there are common practice of deficits of funds, which leads to more borrowing, either domestically or by other sources. Meaning, the spiral of debts are growing and the nature of financing is becoming more dire. Since, the state has to pay interests and pay old debts to keep up with the programs. Certainly, the state or the republic has no plans to configure or has a back-up for the loss of DGF funding. No, it has lived on these funds for years and thinks the donors are gullible to return the favour anyway.

The National Resistance Movement (NRM) has gambled a lot of people’s futures here. The current day-to-day operations of both government entities and CSOs/NGOs will be hurting for a long time. They will not have payroll or be able to keep up with contracts, which was signed a time back. We will see both local government and NGOs cry out. Especially, when the DGF finally close and leave.

It won’t be that easy for the donors of the DGF just to donate or use funds in Uganda after this. They have had mechanisms and organizations, which have followed statutes and means of oversight. That is needed and gives good basis for them to continue to donate in the Republic. However, when that is now gone and cease to operate. The NRM with it’s baseless attacks and wanting to interfere. Has ensured this loss. They will feel the pinch and the loss of domestic revenue through this. They might not consider it right now. Neither the ramifications of the CSOs/NGOs, but their activities and such has ensured livelihoods of lots of people. That’s why this is biting the hand that feeds you. Without having any sort of back-up or other revenue to ensure the longevity of the partners of DGF, which are getting hurt by this.

The IPOD is just one of them, but there are 30 CSOs/NGOs and a few government entities that is losing out too. That’s where there will be shortfall in 2023 and beyond. Unless, the Government of Uganda is able to talk and negotiate again with donors to create another body to have similar functions. Which I doubt, because, why do that? When you have seen how the NRM and the President has acted towards the DGF? Peace.

Opinion: Truss and Kwarteng’s self-inflicted crisis…

Government policy has nothing to do with common sense” – Sir Humphrey Appleby (Yes, Minister).

I wrote earlier in the year that Truss could be the albatross, which the Collins Dictionary describes like this: “If you describe something or someone as an albatross around your neck, you mean that they cause you great problems from which you cannot escape, or they prevent you from doing what you want to do” (Collins Dictionary – ‘Albatross’). In the months time I wouldn’t consider to be proven right, but especially not in this way.

Liz Truss and her appointed Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng has just within a weeks time announcing their biscotti mini-budget been able to destroy the value of the Pound Stirling, making mortgages expensive, getting the Bank of England to save pensions and gilts. The whole financial market turned into distress and uncertainty, which haven’t been at these levels in forever. Not even the COVID-19 Pandemic or the downturn of Brexit was as dire. Not like the United Kingdom or City of London was running smooth now. However, the latest moves of the Tories and the tax-cuts are hurting the economy. In such a manner, that the Prime Minister and Chancellor are doing this to themselves.

These two could do better, but they are pursuing it. They seemed not very concerned with the fall of value of the Pound Stirling, neither the actions of the Bank of England. The distress and uncertainties creating are being put on the consumer and the citizens. Their mortgages and pensions are in jeopardy. The rising payments in addition to the more cost of living, rising inflation and now destruction of the financial market is a horrific cocktail created by the Tories. It is all culminating because of the biscotti mini-budget.

That’s why this little treat is self-destructive. The Tories and the ones in-charge is clearly not caring or acting in accordances to the harm they are creating. They are the albatross and they don’t mind being so. Truss and Kwarteng is doing it, but willing playing along. Thinking this will boil over and it will make sense in November. However, the public will pay the price on the mortgages and the Bank of England is bailing out the government.

Truss and Kwarteng can gamble everything on the biscotti. They are willing to go on the limb and die on the hill of the rich. These two are willing to risk the financial markets so the rich gets more wealthy. Those two are now willing to risk the companies carrying the pensions, creating a possible housing crisis and that in addition to the inflation or affects created by the Brexit itself. There is already a downturn with austerity for 12 years, but not forgetting the financial market reaction to the Brexit too. Therefore, these two knew things wasn’t perfect or running smoothly. Even knowing that… they still are pushing tax-cuts for the rich and cutting benefits for the poor. They are doing the opposite of Robin Hood and hopes for glory. It is just disgusting… and should be called out for.

London is falling, the City is falling and no one is in-charge is ensuring a safe landing. It is really disgraceful the attitude and the acts of the Prime Minister and Chancellor. They are just showing arrogance and ignorance of the plights of the people. When they are ensuring more wealth for the wealthy and planning to cut more for the poorest. That is just how despicable these leaders are. While the prices are souring, inflation is growing and the pound is losing value making all imports more expensive.

Truss and Kwarteng are two albatrosses now. They are a problem and they are allowing themselves to be it too. That’s the role they are playing and they are not letting go. Peace.

Opinion: Putin’s deranged speech

I want the Kyiv authorities and their real masters in the West to hear me, so that everyone remembers this: people living in Lugansk and Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporozhye become our citizens forever. We call on the Kyiv regime to immediately cease fire, all hostilities, the war that it unleashed back in 2014, and return to the negotiating table. We are ready for this, it has been said more than once. But we will not discuss the choice of the people in Donetsk, Lugansk, Zaporozhye and Kherson, it has been made, Russia will not betray it. And today’s Kyiv authorities should treat this free will of the people with respect, and nothing else. This is the only way to peace” – President Vladimir Putin (30.09.2022).

Today was a supposed day of glory and greatness, but everyone know what it really is. The Russian President and his “Yes-Men” held a ceremony to takeover 4 oblasts from Ukraine, which they are not even able to occupy or annex with conventional force. That’s why Russian army is mobilizing at home, but plenty of people in the right age has fled to former USSR republics or even to other Russian friendly nations to avoid the call-up for arms and be part of the invasion of Ukraine.

President Putin who was supposed to be over the “Special Operation” months ago. A man who is seeing his armies being destroyed, depleted and loosing moral. A President who is trying to galvanize his troops and supporters. However, everyone must know that these “referendums” and “annexation” of oblasts are only to legitimizing escalation of war in Ukraine. Not like the Ukrainian people will see a difference, but the Russian population will. Because, his saying the people of the 4 oblasts belongs to Kremlin, Duma and the Russian Federation now!

Later Putin said this: “I want to emphasize once again that it is precisely in greed, in the intention to maintain its unlimited power, that there are the real reasons for the hybrid war that the “collective West” is waging against Russia. They do not wish us freedom, but they want to see us as a colony. They do not want equal cooperation, but robbery. They want to see us not as a free society, but as a crowd of soulless slaves. For them, a direct threat is our thought and philosophy, and therefore they encroach on our philosophers. Our culture and art are a danger to them, so they are trying to ban them. Our development and prosperity is also a threat to them – competition is growing. They don’t need Russia at all, we need it” (Putin, 30.09.2022).

It is really interesting that Putin blames the West. When it’s Putin and his nation that is waging war. Putin has ordered the invasion of Ukraine and blames the West over it. Calling everyone in the West soulless slaves, but he don’t want any dissent at home. Neither is there any sense of self-reflection into how his regime is running Russia. Therefore, it’s projecting on others, but we cannot forget that Putin wanted to annihilate Ukraine and erase it from history. His own words earlier in the war. So, Putin should reconsider his stance, but we know he wants all glory himself and doesn’t accept any push-backs. Because, how can he speak of freedom or liberty for that matter when people are arrested for protesting the war and some of them will be enlisted in army for doing so. The freedom of Russia is clearly not worth it.

He continues: “What I want to emphasize, emphasize: there is every reason to believe that the Western elites are not going to look for constructive ways out of the global food and energy crisis, which arose through their fault, precisely through their fault, as a result of their many years of policy long before our special military operation in Ukraine, in Donbass. They do not intend to solve the problems of injustice and inequality. There is a fear that they are ready to use other, familiar to them, recipes” (Putin, 30.09.2022).

It is really something else when he blames the West for everything. When his the one issuing the war and he wanted to use the energy as a bargain chip towards Europe. He is calling them liars, when Russia has been selling gas and petroleum to the West for so long now. That the European Nations are shifting suppliers and places to get that. Is by all means in the long run hurting Kremlin and Russia, as they cannot find as easy and accessible market for it. That’s why he has to blame the West over it. He is even pinning the food shortage and wheat exports of Ukraine on them, as if he haven’t blocked the ports, the seas and done what he could to stop it. That just shows what sort of imperialism he clings on to. He speaks of injustice and inequality, Putin should look into his regime and actions against his own citizens, but also the acts of brutality and crimes of war committed in Ukraine. It’s not like he can run away from the damage, the hurt and the pain he has put people through there.

He also says: “Dear friends! Today we are fighting for a just and free path, first of all for ourselves, for Russia, for diktat, despotism to remain forever in the past. I am convinced that countries and peoples understand that a policy based on the exclusivity of anyone, on the suppression of other cultures and peoples, is inherently criminal, that we must turn this shameful page. The collapse of Western hegemony that has begun is irreversible. And I repeat again: it will not be the same as before” (Putin, 30.09.2022).

Certainly, the prospects of what Putin is speaking off is untrue. The invasion of Ukraine has solidified the NATO and the European Union (EU). Yes, there are nations which isn’t totally in line like Hungary and Turkey, but most are in accord with the line of support of Ukraine. That’s why I don’t know what Putin is seeing in Moscow, but Brussels are most of time on the same page about this. The EU isn’t suppressing cultures, not like the Russian Federation planned to do to Ukraine. Therefore, the multi-cultural hegemony of the EU isn’t like the CSTO or Russian Federation itself. Who wants to annex and let the people forget the roots. Like what the Russians plans to do in the annexed regions of Ukraine. So, I don’t know where he got this nonsense from…

He ends with: “Behind us is the truth, behind us is Russia!” (Putin, 30.09.2022). As if this is a powerful statement. Surely the thousands of dead soldiers in Ukraine must wonder what the truth was and if Russia was behind them. Putin can speak like this, but the brutality of his war doesn’t change it. Russian Army should question who is behind it and what truth that it’s operating under. Because the reasoning for the conflict and war has changed. Now it’s all about the West and such, but not denazification. Neither is about taking over Kyiv in a short sweep, but that has all backfired. Certainly it is easier to pin others than being accountable and honest about the “Special Operation” itself.

Nevertheless, this just shows what sort of man Putin is. This is what his saying now and wanted to bash in glory for annexing Ukrainian territories, which he doesn’t even have control over. The occupation force is struggling and Russian people are fleeing the Federation itself. Not like this war has won many hearts, but it has shattered more.

Putin is trying to stand by his actions and make it seem more grand than it is. However, no one should believe him. If he was so great and the war was justified. Why are people fleeing his mobilization to take part in it? Your guess is as good as mine. Nevertheless, Putin will blame that on Brussels, Paris or Washington D.C. because that what he does now. Peace.

Fraud alert: UN warns the Ukrainian citizens and aid organizations about scam schemes using the name of the Ukraine Humanitarian Fund (29.09.2022)

Opinion: Is London falling?

Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng met with members of the financial services sector. He reiterated the government’s commitment to fiscal sustainability & how the Medium-Term Fiscal plan, to be published 23 Nov, will set out a fully costed plan to get debt falling in the medium-term” (HM Treasury, 28.09.2022). .

We know that Brexit would have effects and change the liquidity and ability to get the financial markets connected to the City of London. The Tories has had power for the last twelve years. If anyone would know how things works and what matters. It is the Tories and their Ministers should know as much. However, the newest Prime Minister Liz Truss and Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng seems unaware of a key component for the financial markets, which is “trust” and “stability”.

The Biscotti Mini-Budget is apparently ruining everything. The Bank of England has to buy bonds and gilts, saving businesses and the owners of pensions. If the Bank of England hadn’t stepped in they could have gone bust and things would have been even worse.

The Bank of England is even stating it like this: “As the Governor said in his statement on Monday, the Bank is monitoring developments in financial markets very closely in light of the significant repricing of UK and global financial assets. This repricing has become more significant in the past day – and it is particularly affecting long-dated UK government debt. Were dysfunction in this market to continue or worsen, there would be a material risk to UK financial stability. This would lead to an unwarranted tightening of financing conditions and a reduction of the flow of credit to the real economy. In line with its financial stability objective, the Bank of England stands ready to restore market functioning and reduce any risks from contagion to credit conditions for UK households and businesses” (Bank of England – ‘Bank of England announces gilt market operation’ 28.09.2022).

These aren’t the words of stability or trust. This is bailing out the government and the actions of the new Truss cabinet. The PM and Chancellor has in 22 days been able to get parts of the financial markets to its knees. Just imagine how quickly the new government under Truss has been able to not only loose the value of the British Pound, but also make pension funds insolvent. That’s done in the short time of three weeks. This is actually impressive and depressing.

It is about this time the Tories should be worried. Truss and Kwarteng is only starting their reign and they are already wrecking the economy. Not like the economy or the financial markets was in a good place to begin with. The City of London and financial market has been hit by the Brexit, COVID-19 Pandemic and the austerity over the years. It isn’t like they had a strong market or inherited a rising economy. The Tories had already slowly destroyed it, but the recent acts is their “Hail Mary”.

It doesn’t help that International Monetary Fund (IMF) says this: “IMF Statement on the UK (September 27, 2022) “We are closely monitoring recent economic developments in the UK and are engaged with the authorities. We understand that the sizable fiscal package announced aims at helping families and businesses deal with the energy shock and at boosting growth via tax cuts and supply measures. However, given elevated inflation pressures in many countries, including the UK, we do not recommend large and untargeted fiscal packages at this juncture, as it is important that fiscal policy does not work at cross purposes to monetary policy. Furthermore, the nature of the UK measures will likely increase inequality. The November 23 budget will present an early opportunity for the UK government to consider ways to provide support that is more targeted and reevaluate the tax measures, especially those that benefit high income earners.”” (IMF, 27.09.2022).

When the IMF writes this and the Bank of England is bailing you out. The Chancellor and the Prime Minister should act. Not only pursuit the biscotti and thinks this is just a fluke. It is certainly a reaction to the tax-cuts, the additional decrease in domestic revenue and the possible “bulls-market” which it’s already creating.

The Tories should take this serious. This is a self-destructive and all to feed the rich. It is to give more incentives and add more personal wealth to the already wealthy. The Chancellor isn’t ensuring more capital drive or ensuring safety of the financial markets. No, his just giving the market more stress and concerns. You know your overboard and out of touch. When the Central Bank and the IMF has to take action. That’s compelling and say everything about the losses. This isn’t fun and games, but a dire reality, which seems over the heads of the current leadership.

Truss and Kwarteng has certainly a lot of work ahead of them. They have to initiate things fast and not wait to November. They cannot think the Bank of England will be their saviour or the IMF will be their buddy. No, this weight has to be carried by them and them alone. The Tories are the ones initiating the biscotti mini-budget and got to take the hit for it. Instead of creating more trust and stability. They are creating instability and insecurity in a fragile market, which wasn’t necessary, but that’s what they did. Peace.

Opinion: Medvedev comes with new threats…

We will do everything we can to prevent nuclear weapons from appearing in heighboring countries that are hostile to us. For example, Nazi Ukraine, which is directly controlled by NATO countries these days” (…) “there is no point in counting on the reason and political will of the Kiev regime” (…) “But there is still a fragile hope for the common sense and sense of self-preservation of the enemy countries that indulge them [the Kiev authorities]. They understand: if the threat to Russia exceeds the established danger limit, we will have to respond. Without asking anyone’s permission, without much consultation. And this is definitely not a bluff“ – Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev (TASS – ‘Russia to not allow its hostile neighbors to have nuclear weapons — Medvedev’ 27.09.2022).

The people surrounding President Vladimir Putin shows why the Russian Federation is acting like it is. The paranoia and the intimidation of others. This isn’t the first time the close associate and ally, Dmitry Medvedev has come with harsh words. Heck, he has been like this through the war and invasion of Ukraine. He even wrote a text lecturing Poland of it’s ties to Russia earlier in the year.

This from yesterday just shows the hypocrisy. Because, Ukraine did demilitarize and stop the nuclear arms capacity, which was signed in an agreement with Russia. Nevertheless, those deals are worthless, when the sovereignty and the Russian Federation comes knocking on its doors. The Ukrainian state became weaker and that made it easier for Russia to invade. Therefore, the threats and intimidation is getting old.

It isn’t like the use of nuclear option haven’t been talked about during the conflict. The Kremlin and the President has done this before during the months of invasion. Medvedev isn’t doing anything new. He can project these capacities and the usage of it now.

We know Russia is within their rights and opinions of how they want in the region. Because, people will look into the Cuban Missile Crisis and say the United States of America is doing the same. Alas, here is also a difference too. Since, the Russians are waging war and blaming Ukraine. A nation that did follow the stipulations of an agreement that Russia has violated. This being the Budapest Memorandum.

With that in mind… here is two crucial articles of the Budapest Memorandum of 1994:

1. The Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the United States of America reaffirm their commitment to Ukraine, in accordance with the principles of CSCE Final Act, to respect the independence and sovereignty and the existing borders of Ukraine” (Budapest Memorandum – Memorandum on security assurances in connection with Ukraine’s accession to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. Budapest, 5 December 1994, 1994).

2. The Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the United States of America reaffirm their obligation to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of Ukraine, and none of their weapons will ever be used against Ukraine except in self-defense or otherwise in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations” (Budapest Memorandum – Memorandum on security assurances in connection with Ukraine’s accession to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. Budapest, 5 December 1994, 1994).

So, it isn’t that Ukraine is hostile or indifference of the Budapest Memorandum. No, these stipulated agreement has been violated and breached by the Russian Federation. Not the other way around. That’s why Medvedev own words are just really wrong. He should know better, but Russia needs to be the big brother and the most powerful one.

While he also comes with the “Nazi” lie, which the “Z” of Russia cannot explain. Just their way of justifying the invasion and the “Special Operation”. That such a flawed argument and pointless, but it fits the Russian propaganda of late. Also, that Ukraine is controlled by NATO, which is also not true. Yes, NATO is helping Ukraine, but they are not interfering or directing Ukraine by any stretch of imagination. There is more reasons to believe that the Russians are interfering in Ukraine and Belarus for their own advantage. Therefore, Medvedev is really just showing his lack reasoning, but no should be shocked by that.

This sort of text is so easily to address and look into. It isn’t like Medvedev is doing anything clever. Instead, his talking points is more threats and wanting to boost the egos of Kremlin. Surely, that is working at home, but in Europe his not winning hearts. Medvedev and allies better reconsider their stances. It isn’t like the Russians are winning or advancing in Ukraine. No, their war is backfiring and their leverage is shrinking too. Peace.

Opinion: A biscotti is causing a lot damage

small, hard Italian biscuits containing almonds (= a type of nut)” (Cambridge Dictionary – ‘Biscotti’).

Just mere days in the stint of Prime Minister Liz Truss. Her appointed Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng has proposed a “mini-budget” or a biscotti of sorts. That little treat for the 1% and the big-business is hurting the trust in the system. The manner of which the new cabinet and the newly appointed cabinet secretaries are revealing new financial policies are hurting it.

Truss and Kwarteng was supposed to bring confidence back. They was supposed to be there and steady the ship. Instead they are sinking it and doing it fast. It has possibly ensured a new rising inflation and lack of trust in the financial policies of the state. The Chancellor only needed about three weeks in office to wreck it.

The little treat of tax-cuts to the wealthy and a proposed “growth plan”. Only follows 12 years of austerity and other measures, which haven’t created a better economy. The United Kingdom is already hit hard by the global pandemic and the downturn of the Brexit.

It doesn’t help that the Bank of England is talking of Emergency Measures and acts in defiance of the Chancellor. Those things just shows how dire the financial policies are. Truss appointed Kwarteng and his surely not oozing confidence. There is already letters of “No Confidence” sent to the 1922 Committee. It didn’t take long before the knives was out.

This sort of commentary piece says it all about what they are doing: “The chancellor has put his tax changes at the heart of his plans to boost growth. As previous Institute work has highlighted, the tax system has many flaws which act as a block to growth. Kwarteng promised to deliver ‘tax reforms’ to improve the supply side of the economy, but what he announced so far was disappointing for those hoping he might look to grasp the nettle and tackle longstanding tax problems. His version of tax reform is a series of cuts to headline rates that leave the structure of the system – and therefore any existing flaws – in place. He announced cuts to income tax, national insurance and corporation tax, but apart from small changes to capital allowances there was little that would constitute ‘reform’. The evidence suggests that cuts to headline rates alone are unlikely to drive big increases in growth, especially in the current environment where the Bank of England is raising interest rates, and they will certainly not pay for themselves. Kwarteng would do better by addressing longstanding distortions in the tax system, for example the bias towards self-employment and against employees. Changes like this would not need to cost nearly as much as the tax cuts announced and yet could be more effective at delivering growth” (Thomas Pope – ‘Kwasi Kwarteng’s new era of economic policy is a major gamble’ 23.09.2022, Institute for Government).

The commentary puts the weight where it matters. Tax-cuts takes away revenue for the government. Yes, the ones getting the tax-cuts gets to pay less taxes, but nothing is saying that these funds get used for creating new businesses or develop society. Instead, these funds gets taken out of the budgets and out of public revenue. Meaning the government gets poorer and cannot carry the government expenditure. Especially, when the Chancellor only wants to give tax-cuts, but has no direct plan of finding new revenue, because there is possibly deficit with these sorts of tax-cuts.

This is giving the wealthy and the rich a hand. While the nation is furthering into an energy, financial and rising inflation. The United Kingdom isn’t a prosperous nation at this very moment. Instead, it is a nation hurting of the choices of the Tory government for 12 years.

The era of Liz Truss has just started, an a biscotti is destroying it. The Truss cabinet don’t even get an ease or an easy period. Usually, there would be relief and given time after a disastrous reign under Boris Johnson. They have done within no time to destroy the government bonds and the value of the Pound Sterling. These two didn’t even need a whole month or a year. No, they just needed about three weeks and that’s it.

Now people are not only expecting a recession, but a total implosion. The financial markets most valuable asset is trust. Trust and confidence is always needed… right now the Chancellor and Prime Minister is causing more harm. Apparently, the uncapped bankers’ bonuses wasn’t the silver bullet to change the economy, but instead drain it. The same is with the tax-cuts. All of these is only serving one purpose, enriching the rich and given them a handout. However, it isn’t helping the economy and the Chancellor should know this.

That’s why the Pound Stirling is diving. The cost of living will rise even more. The inflation and the recession is now upon the nation. That’s because of how the Tories has handled it all over the years. Not only the last appointees and under PM Truss. No, this is a long time coming with help of Cameron, May and Johnson too. All of them has given way to this, but only the latest comrades who has crashed it totally.

The Chancellor and Prime Minister should reflect on the biscotti. That little treat can be their downfall. The little biscuit can destroy them and be their grand finale. Just because they dared and did so.

Not the wisest move, but what they did anyway. Peace.
