The New UK Sunak Government had steadied markets, but in coming weeks it will become increasingly clear the fractured Tories are trapped in no-Growth Austerity. Can they escape, or is it time for a Political Reset?
Today we likely get a new PM. The opportunity for Rishi Sunak is challenging, but he may get markets on side and start the recovery process for the deeply dysfunctional and divided Conservative Party. He probably still loses by 2024 – but political stability may be back on the agenda.
Something is rotten in the state… A deep rooted canker underlies the current crisis. Removing it will give the UK a real chance at some kind of Brexit Bonus, Growth and Prosperity. But we have to change, and change utterly.
If you thought Unfunded Spending was a bad idea, don’t be fooled Austerity is going to be any more successful. It’s Anti-growth, regressive and will push the UK into deep recession, but about the only policy option left open to the discredited Tories.
Budget U-Turns and a P45 should take the edge of the UK’s Financial Woes for a few days, but the big question is what comes next, and who should iterate the New New Conservative Thang. It looks like we have Adults Back in the Room!
The headlines could not be bleaker in terms of open political plots within Government and The Bank of England undermined internally and externally. This is how nations fall – this is not what the UK deserves.
The UK is not bust or broke. Smart investors are actively looking for bargains in the wake of the Trusster**ck. Its time for change to monetise the value of the UK for the UK!.
There are lessons from the public humiliation of Kwasi Kwarteng for governments and corporates around the globe. If we are going to address the looming economic crises – then governments, central banks and financial instutions need to be on the same page.
How do we fix the UK’s broken National Health Service? Don’t expect much from politicians – fixing the NHS is politically dangerous, might take decades, and is way beyond the time frame of the next election. It’s better to tinker, make some noise and do little. There are many reasons the NHS is effectively broken, but even more reasons to be hopeful it can be fixed – if we can just muster the vision and imagination to make it happen and use tech!
The Bank of England averted a run on the UK’s investment institutions yesterday. Chancellor Kwarteng is unlikely to thank them for their calm competency and credibility. The Bank’s intervention has triggered a global rally as the market now expects more central bank support.
