Liz Truss defiant in conference speech attacking ‘anti-growth’ critics

  • katma 4 Eki 2022
  • At the end of a fractious, bumpy and ill-disciplined conference Liz Truss tried to banish the U-turns and pull the party together with a brief speech about one main idea - “growth, growth and growth.”
    (Subscribe: bit.ly/C4_News_Subscribe )
    She said it 29 times in 34 minutes, and said her critics are the "anti-growth coalition".

    I like that when she complains and leaves a pause about the enemy virtue signalling there was deathly silence. The fact she was herself virtue signalling makes it all so more nonsensical.

      The demagoguery in her 'anti- growth' finger-pointing kinda reminded me of our former President DJT here in America.
      Nobody rejects growth. It's her 'mini-budget' they reject.

      @Disco only Liz will and can finish the totalitarian despots Putin and his pals at China CCP etc coz she has the courage to do so despite risks to her own safety, having already said so in public as an official policy of her term-whereas all other so called leaders in the free world are weaklings and crooks or have been bought already by their puppeteers in Moscow and Beijing. After Boris, only Liz is committed to ending the evil regimes that threaten our free world way of life. All other issues in re inflation and energy etc pale in comparison to the existential threat that these totalitarian despots pose on our democratic societies and humane culture. Let’s be real !!!

      @Rufino Garcia That’s 350 years after the events it’s supposed to depict! you’re deluded. “The immaculate conception”😂😂 “water into wine”😂😂
      Emperor Constantine (an atheist who converted) was responsible to having what we now know as “the bible” written in the early 4th century. He knew the Roman Empire could no longer be controlled by force of arms. So he used religion. Thats why it was kept in Rome and in secret. Over the next 500+ years there were numerous changes made to it. Even in 17th century it was heresy to make copies of it. You never wondered why?

      And Starmer was head of the crown prosecution, of course charges could have been issued for your friend Jimmy Saville.
      If Starmer becomes Prime Minister, is he going to blame his underlings for decisions and say I didn't know ? And I could not do anything about it, how pathetic.
      And if your friends in the Labour Party ever gain office you think gas and electric is expensive now ? Wait till their green energy nonsense is implemented lol

      @Boarded Up Yes they should; everyone who is privileged has a moral obligation to pay a GENUINE Living Wage so that the underprivileged can live a reasonable quality of life. Privileged people waste money on excrement anyway.

      STUNT-MAN MIKE Aylar önce +4

      @Jack Don't talk nonsense; no left-wing person is advocating that cleaners be paid the same as a professor; eradicating inequality is about introducing a GENUINE Living Wage that will enable the underprivileged people to pay their bills and rent with relative ease, and have some disposable income to make life worth living. This can be achieved by eradicating shareholders, which will then free up money that can be used to pay a GENUINE Living Wage; on top of which multi-millionaires like Premier League footballers should be heavily taxed so that the money can be used to pay a GENUINE Living Wage. In doing so money which otherwise would have been wasted in casinos will go towards paying the poor a GENUINE Living Wage. Premier League footballers are infinitely less intelligent than a fart, who have more money than sense.

      It is too late to prevent the problems that Liz Shepherd mentioned and has been too late for many years. Even if you stopped all emissions tomorrow, and that is clearly impossible of course, the climate will keep on changing for hundreds, if not thousands of years, rain forests keep on being cut down without any thought for the consequences, especially in Brazil and poverty will always exist as it has for just about as long as humans have existed. And that is not to mention population growth - it took thousands of years for the human population to reach reach 1 billion in 1800 - but only 223 years to reach 8 billion - and nuclear war, the threat of which once thought gone, has come back with a vengeance with the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
      Out concerns are really a case of shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted - but not only has the horse long since bolted, we have not even shut the door yet!

    Neither politics nor the language of deception, manipulation, or an education in the art of political language has ever appealed to me. Cain exhibited these characteristics because he was unable to give a straight answer when questioned after killing his brother. Sure, you have noticed politicians also display these characteristics.

      @Conservator Sure they definitely need to balance the budget. A windfall tax will be great in the short term & provide lots of money, and disastrous in the long term, disincentivizing companies & individuals from investing in the UK. Bear in mind oil companies have performed very badly in the past 10 years, investors who bought into them did so believing they were undervalued and expecting a future hike in the oil price.
      Really, spending needs to be slashed across the board- starting with the NHS, then state pensions, then welfare. Everything must be means tested, we are not rich enough to give millionaires free bus passes & £185 a week. If you are really struggling fair enough you deserve help, if you have a Mercedes in a home counties garage, then sell the merc.
      But this will never voluntarily happen in a democracy, so I expect eventually we will go bust and need an IMF bailout. At that point the IMF don't care what voters think and the electorate will feel the full pain that was kicked down the road again & again.
