Ellie Gellard, strategist director at 38 degrees said, “It’s not often you see a poll results send a message as blunt as this – sent as loudly from the Conservatives’ own constituencies as the rest of country. How leading candidate for Prime Minister, Liz Truss makes headlines for her plan to “do nothing” as the nation she wants lead facing disaster. It’s time for her to listen people she hopes to represent in three weeks”.

The Ministry of Finance is finalizing the set of options for in next prime minister and chancellor with various degrees of intervention, including extension of a windfall tax that Truss rejected. So be it also provide an opportunity of doubling discounts on electricity bills, which, according to Truss ally Simon Clark, also unlikely to be accepted.

Wealthier households will benefit more from tax cuts Truss promised from the “day one”, including cancellation national insurance rise.

This approach is likely to attract some criticism, since most of the working people on average incomes would only marginally benefit from tax cuts and would not for further targeting support.
