3 weeks ago I suggested we got rid of Eton College boys from our political system.
Boris Johnson, David Cameron, Jacob Rees Mogg....and so the list goes on...
Guess who also went to Eton College?
Yes our new Chancellor
Kwasi Kwarteng.

Please someone make it stop πŸ™πŸΌ

Kwasi Kwarteng has lifted the cap on bankers' bonuses but he thinks doctors who work for the NHS are overpaid. Our Chancellor.

I'm young enough to remember Diane Abbott getting roasted alive for getting a figure wrong on TV when she wasn't well. Kwasi Kwarteng is made chancellor, laughs his tits off at the Queen's funeral, and tanks the entire economy over one weekend.

Media silence. 😐

Kwasi Kwarteng previously worked for Odey Asset Management, providing political advice.

Now he sits as Chancellor of the Exchequer, the pound has crashed, and it is reported that Odey's hedge fund has increased 145% on bets against UK government bonds.

This is the last time Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng was seen on camera.

The government has now completely lost control of the economy.

Where is he?

Where is Kwasi Kwarteng ?? Why aren’t we hearing from the Chancellor? We’ve had a *Β£65 billion* emergency BoE intervention
I don’t want to hear his junior minister Chris Philp duck, dive & pretend there’s no crisis on the morning media round

SHOCKING & SHAMEFUL - new chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng blames benefit claimants for high inflation labour shortages which even Larry the cat knows have been created in part by the hard Brexit his Government has inflicted on the country & threatens to cut their benefits

New Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng immediately crashing the pound to a 37 year low and then yelling 'it's only been 19 days, I've just got started!' is less a boast and more a warning.

My god… Chancellor of the Exchequer Kwasi Kwarteng is actually stood in the House of Commons declaring 100% tax relief for venture capitalists in a bid to draw in investment… if you aren’t terrified then you’re not watching closely enough

Nice to see Kwasi Kwarteng clearly taking a personal call at the Queens funeral and having a bit of a laugh

The chancellor can't even show any respect at this most solemn occasion

New Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng wants to scrap curbs on bankers bonuses whilst new Prime Minister Liz Truss calls key workers who won’t accept a crappy real terms pay cut β€œmilitant” & plans to make it more difficult for them to strike

General Twitter consensus on the behaviour of chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng at the Queen's funeral

He was having a joke while taking a personal call

He was talking to himself

He was on something and couldn't stay still

He's an embarrassment

Why Liz Truss let Kwasi Kwarteng be the chancellor? Although he is clever, his major is history! He knows nothing about economics! No wonder whose field is economic is right !
