      He could join Labour Party perhaps?

        Same tulip all the time really, we'll have mal here argueing that those future tax increases are better than what Labour would have done

          No you won't.

          Because it's self evident anyway. Read any Labour manifesto, or study a little history...

            At least Labour would not be breaking their manifesto promises regarding taxes, unlike Tory Scum

Despite being super rich, he also manages to come across as a normal, nice guy. After the Boris Rollercoaster that might be welcome. Gove is the safe/boring option, he's pretty intensely disliked by Labour voters but then they aren't going to vote Tory so maybe it doesn't matter.
              Possibly, perhaps if it happens soon, but he is the chancellor and we are heading into what is very likely to be the worst year in decades for people's personal finances. Tax rises and raging inflation (they estimate 6-7% CPI, what's the betting we hit 10? and RPI will be way ahead of that) actually affect the average voter far more than any reports of GDP etc. I think things could get pretty ugly for the Tories (and the country) and I'm not sure they even have anyone left who could win them the next election.
              My guess, FWIW, is Truss - but only if she can get onto the final ballot.

                Labour at least improve the NHS and other public services when they raise taxes. We will shortly have the highest tax take for 70 years, all while public spending has been decimated. Not really a vote winning combination.

                  Oh yes, forgot the bit in the tory manifesto about dealing with an unexpected, hugely expensive and damaging medical emergency. Sorry...

                  Ignoring the unnecessary class invective, no Labour government has been faced with the fiscal challenge we've had over the last two years. Tax rises were inevitable from day one, either to pay for what has been done to keep us afloat or to pay for the extended recovery period if they had done nothing.

                  But let's not let reality intrude too far.

                      They'll manipulate stats to keep it lower than 10% for sure, where as unavoidable large costs like gas/electric will be 50%+ in a few months
