Britain has become an insane, cruel and callous place which makes the poor pay so that the energy companies can rake in billions, a sclerotic polity which is well on the way to full-blown authoritarianism.
As millions worry about keeping food on the table or keeping their homes warm, and thousands of businesses are facing collapse, people are not just mourning the Queen, they are mourning the Britain that the Conservatives have destroyed.
Boris Johnson is a liar and a cheat but like all successful con artists, he is basically a showman. Even so, the people of Scotland proved immune to his charms. Liz Truss’s problem is that she has no charm at all.
