As a political package, Marxism is of course rubbish: but Marx does offer one or two insights that are useful in the abstract. One of these is the idea that in certain circumstances (we needn't press Marx too hard on what he thought those were) people intuitively grasp that any political change whatsoever would be better than the way things are.
I'd say Liz 'Teenage Tantrum' Truss is entering that territory now.
It's a tremendous irony that we Conservatives used to say of Corbyn: you can't be having a government like wot he'd have, because the markets would take it down within days.
They'd opened the books on 'next PM' even before KK got the boot. Oh well, first things first: a new Chancellor. The idea that Chris Philp should be on anyone's list [Guido] just shows we'd be wrong if we thought one of those Marx moments was already upon us.
