Jeremy Hunt? He Won't Last

 Jeremy Hunt is apparently the new Chancellor of the Exchequer before it's even been announced.

He has no connection with Liz Truss, and the question has to be who would serve under her. Her authority is completely battered. Kwasi Kwarteng was her ideological soulmate and he did what they wanted to do. They lacked legitimacy to do it - who voted for them to suddenly do the other thing? - but Jeremy Hunt is no more than a safe pair of hands. He will be a short term chancellor only because when she falls he will fall. She's finished and her colleagues may as well get on with it.
