Given the choice of two leaders (rather than an alternative party), they picked the wrong one for the country.
Not an AIBU as I am sure there will be those that disagree, but wondering why there is not the odd throw-away comment in the media referencing Sunak’s prediction during the leasdership contest.

There’s been loads of references to Sunak’s predictions in the reports I’ve read.

There’s loads about this in the media.

There was one person who predicted exactly what was going to happen to the U.K. under Liz Truss’s ‘fairy tale’ economics—and he was ridiculed for it: Rishi Sunak, who stood against Truss in the race to become Britain’s prime minister, warned months ago that her tax-cutting policies would be disastrous for Britain

Doomster Rishi Sunak was right about Trussonomics: Former chancellor has been vindicated over his warnings during leadership campaign

Rishi Sunak said it was fairytale economics. That was one thing he got right

He helped get us in this awful mess. 12 years of these self serving bastards. They need to go and never ever return.

There are no backsies

And the Tories have to learn to stop undermining and ditching their leaders.

I wonder how many are thinking nostalgically of Theresa May.

And I wonder how many normal right-leaning people are yearning for Tory party in the mould of Rory Stewart rather than the current shower of shite

There's been lots on twitter about his warnings on unfunded tax cuts leading to inflation and higher interest rates. But what's the point? He didn't win.

Though he was going to go the austerity route, wasn’t he? So, we wouldn’t have had this ridiculous self-inflicted immediate shit-show, but we’d still have had the long, grinding, years of poverty shit-show.

That's unavoidable. But now we get this immediate crisis, a longer deeper period of austerity and are a laughing stock.

The Tories have to learn to stop installing leaders that need to be undermined and ditched. They're quite right to undermine and ditch useless leaders.

The thing I hate the most is the MPs who will sit back and let the county become destroyed because they can.
They don't work for us at all
