New record speed run for that position.

Technically second place, but Iain Macleod died in office rather than getting sacked

You mean Kwasi barely did as well in the job as a guy with a fatal heart condition?


ciaphas2037 t1_isb7ucg wrote

No, I think Kwasi did far worse. Not only had a similarly short period in office, but also manage to seriously fuck up the UK economy.

Wow! In Britain you can fire an African without repercussions.

How many Mooches was it?

Kwasi Kwarteng: 38 days. Anthony Scaramucci: 10 days.

You have to count the day he started as well, so it was actually 11 days, and that comes out to 3.45 repeating.

Kwarteng being thrown to the wolves so that they don't go after Truss (she hopes). She was already subtly throwing him under the bus in that disastrous round of local radio interviews.

Where do you think Britain would be today if Cameron had never called that referendum? It seems like so much stability has been lost since that all got rolling.

I think there’s this idea that “the right leadership” can solve the looming crisis. That’s a fallacy and I think you’re right - stability should be favored. Unfortunately the UK in the last 4 years has shown anything but that.

He accomplished 100% of his goals. Think about that.

Is he a fall guy, or was the tax cut really his dumb idea? Truss shouldn't escape blame, as the timing makes this look like her idea.

Looks like the lettuce may beat out Truss

I juat saw that. As someone across the pond, it's good to know that good parody isn't dead.
