Could a modified version of Truss/Kwarteng have worked, or were Sunak/Hunt right to change course? I suspect that the debate will continue for years to come, with neither side achieving a decisive victory. There might be a compromise. If Truss/Kwarteng had done more to roll the pitch and also been less radical in their goals, and if they had not fallen out with the Bank of England, they might still be in office. Equally, the Bank should have put up interest rates earlier, and all the way to three per cent. It was also unnecessary to announce the sale of gilts at a jittery moment. The markets were spooked enough without an apparent threat to longer-term interest rates causing further alarm.
