The poor should get a £1,000 cost of living payment.

That's appalling. They already get paid too much money for doing 'f' all.

Cutting taxes for the rich.

No help to the poor and those on low wages who pay no tax.

Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng's odd behaviour at the Queen's funeral was reported but not as much as it should have been. Many people suggesting he was on drugs, laughing and moving his body about in his seat.

He's never had to answer any questions about that.

But I'll be watching at 9.30am.

People handle situations like that in different ways. I don't honestly know how I would handle everyone around me being all sombre and quiet. I would probably crack a joke to break the ice

Well if you've seen the footage, it's not a normal smile or even an out of place grin, it's like he is high on drugs. I'm not saying he was but perhaps he had a bad reaction to medication. But it's not right this incident has largely been covered up.
