I wasn't gonna bother reporting on Truss, but this is too facepalmingly good. It's farce on the same level as satirical political show The Thick of It. It would be hilarious to see her kicked out by Christmas. See ya, wouldn't wanna be ya!
The Thick of It: Created by Armando Iannucci. With Chris Addison, James Smith, Peter Capaldi, Joanna Scanlan. Set in the corridors of power and spin, the Minister for Social Affairs is continually harassed by Number 10's policy enforcer and dependent on his not-so-reliable team of civil servants.
Odds have been slashed on Liz Truss making an early exit from Downing Street amid economic turmoil.
The prime minister’s odds of a swift exit were cut from 40/1 to just 7/1 in a matter of days, according to Ladbrokes.
Meanwhile, Rishi Sunak leapfrogged five other Tory MPs overnight as the favourite to replace her at just 4/1.
“What a week Liz Truss is having. Confidence in the newly-appointed PM is fast dwindling and 7/1 says she’s sent packing before the end of the year,” Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said.
“That means the Tory leadership race could be well and truly on once again, and it’s former frontrunner Rishi Sunak who is now back at the head of the betting.”
