It seems to be a Tory trait, whatever your crime, as long as you resign for a couple of months you can come back and act as though you never did anything wrong. And this is a tricky area cos I'm not saying that any single transgression that end of your career, but...
Pritti Patel was fired by May for disobeying her direct orders in Israel, she secretly met with the Israeli government against the wishes her PM, that's fucking treason isn't it? And she compounded it by hiding it, then lying to say that she had been given permission from the Foreign Secretary (Boris Johnson) - and then she had to admit that that wasn't true and resigned in disgrace. That should have been the end of her - yet staggeringly, when May resigned Johnson brought her back as Home Secretary. Absolutely disgusting, I don't understand how that was allowed to happen or why people didn't make more fuss about it
That cunt Liam "the cunt" Fox was another who slimed his way back in after he took advantage of official visits to bring his secret boyfriend along and help him get preferential business deals by implying he was part of the delegation. Resigned in disgrace - again it was a matter of dishonestly taking advantage of the country which should have been the end, however a year or so later he's standing to be the leader and only his lack of popularity stemming from his extraordinary cuntishness stopped him winning.
As well as that you have Hunt who never even bothered to resign when his leaked texts revealed he was advising the Murdochs on how best to get round his own monopolies commission and its rules & is still hanging around the cabinet like a bad stench
With Johnson promoting gropers and trying to change the rules so his friend didn't have to resign when caught breaking them, not to mention his own fines and... etc etc
I can sort of see why Truss thinks to herself "Fuck it, it's been a few weeks since my utterly disastrous premiership in which I crashed the stock market, increased the deficit by billions, added crippling costs for mortgage holders, performed countless humiliating U-turns and lost a fight with a lettuce, I reckon I can stand for the role of leader when Rishi resigns".
Now she's saying that she wasn't given a chance, perhaps forgetting that if she'd carried on at that rate for a few more days there probably would be have been no UK left to lead... or perhaps she is simply incapable of grasping such a complex concept.
At least she has the backing of the shady student who was mysteriously given almost 3/4 of a million by BeLeave and who escaped a fine for breaking the rules by successfully and convincingly arguing that he was too stupid to understand them.
I have a great deal of sympathy for Lizz Truss She sought to exploit the opportunities of Brexit in the face of much resistance from Treasury orthodoxy. Taking taxes back to what it was under Blair isn’t ‘radical’. Both her diagnosis and proposed prescription was spot on.
As an aside, a lot of right-wing commentators often further to the benefits or opportunities of Brexit without being able to expand refer. What was good about Brexit? Well we got Brexit benefits? But what are they? They're Brexit opportunities... etc
