The election of Liz Truss as the leader of the Tory Party and therefore PM has sent shivers down the spine of millions of working people across the country.
The crisis we are facing is a multifaceted one. Rising energy prices, food shortages, disruption of supply chains, tight labour markets and war. Combine this with the crisis in funding, in education, the NHS and our social services and we have the potential of a political and economic crisis of historic proportions.
Meanwhile the shareholders in the revised energy companies raking it in. Record profits are being made and £billions are being poured into the pocket of the already fabulously wealthy.
