Well I'm not as clever as lots on here but looking at the UK budget the Conservatives seem to have totally looked after their mates in every area without any thoughts of those same people contributing to paying for the increased debt. This in my opinion is not going to end well. Maybe Truss and her lackeys are inspired but my bet is there getting smashed in a election very soon. Not sure they will be able to hold out for the 18 months left.

The UK has a joke government but it looks like we now have a “shit or bust” strategy being deployed to reward the idiots who voted for Brexit with more tax breaks. 

Unfortunately we are in lockstep with whatever crazy policies truss comes up with

Presumably accompanied by printing copious amounts of money to cover the shortfall.

Not printing, borrowing. Big difference.

She’s insane and she is so staggeringly incompetent (and clearly so) you wonder what on earth is going on with the UK Tory Party. There’s so much coverage already about how stupid this mini budget is.

She is the Conservative Party equivalent of David Ashford. A dangerous, delusional, Walter Mitty with no discernible talent or intellect whatsoever who is simply a useful idiot who allows other people to pull their strings. She’s so far down the NLP rabbit hole of unjustified self belief that she’s thoroughly dangerous.

We’ll know in 6/12 months whether it’s working or not, suppose the alternative could have been Sunak style austerity measures

Does anybody know if the UK Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) will yet have a say in today's announcements?

Yes

• Government to set out its fiscal approach more fully in future and the Office for Budget Responsibility will publish an economic and fiscal forecast before the end of the year.

No, because we are in a VAT and Customs Union with UK. So we are part of the same consumption tax area
