Rishi needs rhetoric

Or, speaking lessons at least.

He speaks – first speech of his I’ve heard – as if he’s reading a bedtime story.

  1. I imagine that gone are the days when the Chancellor would stiffen the resolve with a glass of Whisky, before breaking the bad news to the nation.

  2. My employer just complimented his skills as an orator actually. Maybe she likes the accent.

  3. “It is always a pleasure to see a first-rate mind in action, as we did during today’s Budget. Equally, when a Chancellor gives such an assured performance, especially if his Prime Minister is, shall we say, controversial, it makes people think … Sunak has three qualities which equip him for high office. He is clever, he is likeable and he is tough. We could add a fourth. In this respect, Sajid Javid would be a strong second, but I am told that Sunak did even better. No other Chancellor since 1900 made so much money and enjoyed so much commercial success before he took office.” (Bruce Anderson, The Spectator)

  4. He is a thieving dodgy bond salesman and general cunt who put up taxes instead of cutting them.

  5. As for the mini-boom I have been predicting, the Office for Budget Responsibility predicts that GDP will return to pre-pandemic levels in the middle of next year, with growth forecast to be 4 per cent this year, and 7.3 per cent in 2022.

    Jus’ sayin’.

  6. Rhetoric is something you learn through practice at school and uni debating clubs. If he hasn’t picked it up by now, he’ll never get it. Gordon Brown was the same – remember his painfully awkward efforts to spark life into his monologues?

  7. In case any mugs out there–other than Theo–think we have a bright future ahead of us–here is an article showing how Kalifornia Kommies plan to get petrol off the market.

    And of course it will be more expensive:

    Classic cars cant use it so “E5” will still be available–for now. Of course E10 can become some future even more expensive biofuel shite that your old non-leccy car wont run on. Tory BlueMarxist Greenfreak scum on the job ensuring no-more-cars-for-plebs. Theo trusts these scum cos he is a mug. Don’t be ,like Theo.

    And on the Brightside –still your own fuel and run your car on alcohol–

  8. ” the Office for Budget Responsibility* predicts that GDP will return to pre-pandemic levels in the middle of next year, with growth forecast to be 4 per cent this year, and 7.3 per cent in 2022.”

    When you see a decimal point in a prediction 2 years away you can be sure you’re being fed bollocks.

    *When did they come up with such a ridiculous name for a government department? Where’s the Ministry for Sunbeams when you need it?

    Preach it, bro! But (of course) “I believe that economists put decimal points in their forecasts to show they have a sense of humor.” (William Gilmore Simms). When they were engaged on Project Fear, Treasury economists were perfectly content to forecast the impact of Brexit to five significant figures, fifteen years out.
