“She’s still in charge” – UK Chancellor Jeremy Hunt insists Liz Truss is still leading the Conservative Party

“SHE’S STILL IN CHARGE” – Recently-appointed UK Chancellor Jeremy Hunt has insisted that Liz Truss is still in charge of the government, despite a series of U-turns that have put her premiership in jeopardy.

Some Tory backbenchers have reportedly been talking privately about how to remove the PM from office. It follows market turmoil led, which led Truss to abandon her flagship tax policies.

But Hunt is urging the party to unite behind her, as the pair held crunch talks to thrash out plans on tax and spending.

It comes despite speculation that Hunt is now captain of the conservative ship.

“She’s listened. She’s been willing to do that most difficult thing in politics, which is to change tack,” Hunt said to the BBC.

Hunt replaced Kwasi Kwarteng on Friday. The former chancellor was removed from his post following financial turbulence in the wake of last month’s mini-budget.

A key test of the government’s moves so far will come when markets reopen early on Monday.

In the U.S., President Joe Biden has also weighed in on the government’s tax cuts.

Speaking to reporters during a campaign visit, he said the outcome was “predictable”.

“I wasn’t the only one that thought it was a mistake”, Biden said. He added that he had disagreed with “the idea of cutting taxes on the super wealthy”.

It has been a shocking year for crypto investors, the year that crypto came crashing down to earth.

What began as a trickle became a turning point for crypto, losing their luster and exposed as a fringe product that most sensitive, experienced investors approached with skepticism.

So how did crypto climb so high under the cover of the pandemic?

By 2022, the ads were everywhere. Crypto was taking over the superbowl, and global sport.

Hollywood’s biggest names were jumping on board, and suddenly the big banking firms were taking notice.

The tokens might have been virtual, but crypto was become a real threat, and of real interest to next gen investors. #crypto #ftx #bitcoin

Musk’s Tesla is currently floating through the galaxy

Exactly five years ago,Elon Musk’s Tesla roadster was launched into space to travel on an endless joy ride through the cosmic wilderness.

And how’s this for a journey.

On its anniversary, estimates suggest the vehicle has completed three and one quarter loops around the sun and is sitting 326 kilometres from Earth.

It’s also logged up more than 4 billion kilometres, mostly travelling through a barren vacuum.

In space terms, it did get close to Mars at one point – passing within 8 million ks of the planet – or about 20 times the distance between the Earth and the moon.

Although, it’s difficult to say where the vehicle is exactly with or whether it’s still even in one piece.

It is possible the roadster may have been hit by a meteoroid or eroded by radiation. #trending #fetured
