Liz Truss’ mini-budget a poll disaster



Liz Truss’ mini-budget was seen as a disaster by many, and now a new poll has found that around half of voters believe she should resign as prime minister.

The Ipsos survey found 53% of people believe Ms Truss should quit, while only 20% believe she should stay on. The findings come as the Labour Party is enjoying a surge in popularity, with most Britons believing they will win the next general election.

Tuesday’s YouGov poll found that 60% of the public expect a Labour victory, while just 18% think the Tories would win if an election were to be held.

The party’s plans to renationalise key industries and increase taxes on the wealthy have resonated with many voters, who are tired of austerity measures and cuts to public services.

Ms Truss’ mini-budget, which included a rise in fuel duty and cuts to Universal Credit, was seen as a betrayal by many of those who had voted for her party in December’s snap election.

“Truss should resign”

The Ipsos poll asked 1,000 people between 14 and 17 October whether they thought Ms Truss should resign. Just 13% of those surveyed thought she was likely to win the next general election.

These findings show that the public has little faith in Ms Truss and her ability to lead the country. It remains to be seen whether she will be able to turn things around or if she will be forced to resign in the wake of this disastrous mini-budget.

Disney trumps DeSantis with legal loophole



Disney has outplayed Ron DeSantis by leaning on a decades-old royal clause

In February, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis moved to take over Disney World’s governing body.

It was all in retaliation to the company’s public stance against the state’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

But now, new reports suggest this whole plan may have backfired.

Members of the new governor-appointed board argue the previous members stripped the board of its power before they left.

It was all part of an agreement, which was approved a day before DeSantis assumed more control of the land around Disney’s theme park.

Disney is leaning on a property law which essentially makes the company the government of the area.

New board member Ron Peri says the board has lost the majority of its ability to do anything beyond maintain the roads and basic infrastructure.

For just under six decades, Disney has operated its expansive theme park and resort in Florida under a specially designated district.

A board oversaw the area and had free reign of development processes.

Disney also had the authority to appoint district board members.

But this special status came under threat when Disney clashed with DeSantis and his “Don’t Say Gay” law.

Florida lawmakers the passed a bill in February to end Disney’s self-governing status and give the governor the authority to appoint new board members to the district.

DeSantis appointed five supervisors, including a parents’ rights activist and three Republican donors.

But the new supervisors say previous board members entered an agreement before they left their positions – effectively stripping them of any powers. #trending #featured

What alternatives can companies implement, other than just sacking employees, to save something in the short-term?

Let me give you some numbers: Meta, 18,000; Amazon, 9,000; Disney, 7,000.

No, that isn’t the amount of daily subscribers joining the respective platforms, but the amount of job cuts each company has recently announced.

As sexy as that headline ISN’T – it’s a fact of reality that after spending too much during the pandemic, the financial books need to be reined in.

And yes, this may look good to investors in the short-term, but what does it do for the employee – and company morale – going forward?

Are there other alternatives that may satisfy all parties involved?
