Thirty years ago, during Bill Clinton‘s first Presidential election, a particular catchphrase became an integral part of the campaign:
“It’s the economy, stupid”
I am the first to admit that my knowledge of the British political system is limited. If nothing else, it proves that a female politician has as much capacity to succeed or fail as a male politician does.
That aside, two things come to mind. The first is that it proves (hopefully once and for all), that trickle-down economics does not work and will never work. The second is that instead of continuing to endorse Truss and this disaster of an economic policy, her party saw the writing on the wall. They understood that if they continued to support her, the public might not support them.
If only the Republicans in this country might have done the same to a certain former President.
Obviously, we do not know at this point who Truss’s replacement will be. But I do know that the members of the Conservative Party have more balls than their American counterparts do.
