Nicola Sturgeon has taken just minutes to fire her anger at the Government over the mini budget announcements this morning. The First Minister of Scotland said following the statement to the House of Commons even many of the country’s “super wealthy” would be “appalled by the moral bankruptcy of the Tories”.
Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng took to the despatch box this morning to lay out his economic package for the nation just weeks after Liz Truss’s new administration took over.
In a tweet, the First Minister said that “the super wealthy laughing all the way to the actual bank (though I suspect many of them will also be appalled by the moral bankruptcy of the Tories) while increasing numbers of the rest relying on food banks”.
She added that this was “all thanks to the incompetence and recklessness” of the UK Government.
