A new YouGov poll shows two-thirds of Scots (65%) think Liz Truss should resign as Prime Minister after she sacked her Chancellor for pushing through her reckless economic agenda.
It is clear that Liz Truss has no credibility left and it’s now only a matter of time before she’s removed from office.
The disastrous policies in the Tory mini-budget were hers. She trashed the UK economy – and she’s to blame for the damage done to people’s mortgages, pensions and incomes.
The best thing Liz Truss could do for economic stability now is resign. Her decisions have crashed the economy and heaped misery on people already struggling with a cost of living crisis.
The onlydecent thing for Tory MPs to do now is call time on her govt and allow an election https://t.co/VYAISqLzPl

This U-turn is too little, too late. With her Chancellor gone, and her leadership platform junked, it’s unclear what justification there is for the Prime Minister remaining in post. No one can have any confidence in her failed leadership.
The UK is now on the verge of its fifth Prime Minister in just seven years, and the UK economy is in yet another crisis of the Tories’ making.
It’s never been clearer that Scotland needs independence to escape the constant crisis of Westminster control.
🏴 Independence is about the hope for a better future for all of us, and for the generations to come.
🤝 A fairer, greener, more equal country is ours to build. Let’s finish the job.
