Liz Truss did a quickfire round of local radio interviews this morning, in which she gaslit listeners into believing their energy bills will rise to a maximum of £2,500.

That is of course the average, not the maximum - which is unlimited and based on consumption. twitter.com/fullfact/status/15

Have you ever heard a less convincing political sentence?

The government "intends" to increase economic growth.

@trussliz vs BBC radio:

@BBCLeeds - 'you've been AWOL through crisis'
@BBCNorfolk - 'do you know better than RSPB'
@BBCRadioKent - 'are you ashamed of what you've done'
@BBCLancashire - 'you don't know what you are talking about (r.e. fracking)'

I do hope Liz Truss wasn't hoping to clean up on the speaking circuit when she's sacked. Really not her forté.

Bristol calls out Truss: “That is the same scripted answer you have given to every local radio station this morning”

Truss responds by saying we’re in a “global crisis made worst by Putin’s war in Ukraine” (an answer I’ve definitely heard about 8 times already today)

Total car crash interview with @trussliz on @BBCLancashire just now on fracking. She has absolutely no idea what "local consent" looks like. Local MPs don't want it, local councillors don't want it, local people don't want it & the science hasn't changed. It must not happen twitter.com/dinosofos/status/1

We’re going to end up like Greece aren’t we? Only without EU help to prop us up

@tompeck The markets are noticing how bad she is doing. £ down 0.9% in just 30 minutes since she started the interviews.

@KilclooneyJohn Stronger? What's your comparator? The 37 year low of 2 days ago?

@jonsopel @PaulHutchinson You don't convey the sheer turgidness of the voice that delivers the message. You would get a more natural spirited interview from Alexa or Siri.

On BBC Radio Bristol:

“so the bank of England’s intervention yesterday was Vladimir Putin’s fault was it?”

Actual prime minister: “what I’m saying is, these are difficult and stormy times.”

@KilclooneyJohn Stronger than what? Than it was at 4:55pm today? Not stronger than it was before last Friday. And not even stronger than it was after last Friday's crash and a whole day of further crashing.

Nick Ferrari - Stop treating my listeners as fools. This is down to kwasi kwarteng's work & it needs to be changed.. doesn't it?

Chris Philp - The Bank of England intervention appears to be successful

NF - God Almighty what's failure in your book?

@mrjamesob It's been like that for a decade. Utterly dreadful show.

And then the paper review goes & spoils it all by giving utterly undue prominence to a couple of Times & Telegraph Brexit headbangers who’ve already been proved wrong about everything… twitter.com/mrjamesob/status/1

Reassuring that Truss doesn’t even understand how her own energy price cap policy works…

Deeply misleading and incompetent: twitter.com/jhphllps/status/15
