British Tories in crisisLiz Truss’s resignation as Britain’s prime minister after just 44 days in office is the latest indication of a Tory party in chaos. Johnson’s decisive win in the 2019 general election against an enfeebled Corbyn-led Labour Party only boosted the right’s confidence. Suspicions grew as electoral support began to recede during the pandemic and Keir Starmer’s Labour Party opened up a big lead in the polls. Particularly since the global financial crisis, central banks have been willing to lend governments huge sums of money to finance expansive stimulus programs. The current crisis in the Tories has resulted in widespread calls in the labour movement for an early general election.4 months ago Red Flag

It’s the best Alonzo Gaffney has looked in weeks so I’m really happy. He’s got some really good young players to build around in the future. I feel good even though I feel bad because we had to gut that out, it was a close one. If someone gets a shot that we think is a good shot, then everyone is aware what is going on.
