It’s now common currency that Liz Truss was forced to resign as Prime Minister because the international financial markets were so spooked by her disastrous mini-budget that Britain was about to be brought to its knees.

It’s a story that is being repeated just about everywhere you look or read, in most of the national press, on TV, to such an extent that her own party’s critics – as well as Labour – can continue repeating the mantra that Truss crashed the economy.

One Bloomberg article went so far as to claim this week that hedge funds now have their first Prime Minister in Rishi Sunak, such is their power. The suggestion that these all powerful mysterious funds are so omnipotent and that by taking positions in the markets they forced the Tory party’s men in grey suits to whisk Truss off into the night.
