Sunak Says Tax Cuts On the Cards Now Inflation Has Halved— Alex Wickham (@alexwickham) November 20, 2023
“we can begin the next phase and turn our attention to cutting tax"
"We will do this in a serious, responsible way, based on fiscal rules to deliver sound money"

Whether they are the right kind of cuts that actually help the economy and appeal to the voters remains to be seen.

Correction. After tonight’s resignations, there are no longer any members of @socialistcam on Lab front bench. Self-purge is complete— John Rentoul (@JohnRentoul) November 15, 2023
Yesterday's vanity vote on Israel's war against terrorism caused Labour's left wing to self purge itself from the front bench.

The Supreme Court has nixed the government's Rwanda plan, citing ECHR and various other international obligations that apparently override our own legal system.
Sunak intends to rework the Rwanda agreement and revisit the UK legal framework (whatever that means?). He intends to address the nation this afternoon.
Meanwhile various sections of the Tory party are seething, as such he might find himself ousted before the press conference.

The Prime Minister has asked me to serve as his Foreign Secretary and I have gladly accepted.— David Cameron (@David_Cameron) November 13, 2023
We are facing a daunting set of international challenges, including the war in Ukraine and the crisis in the Middle East. At this time of profound global change, it has rarely been more…
Sunak reshuffled Braverman out of the Home Office this morning, and replaced her with James Cleverly.
Then, in a surprising move, replaced Cleverly with David Cameron (who is no longer and MP), who will serve from the House of Lords.
The fact that Sunak has been forced to bring in someone who is not an MP, indicates that there is a dire shortage of talent and ability within the ranks of serving Tory MPs.
