Episode notes

Liz Truss is the UK's new Prime Minister, securing 81,326 votes from Conservative party members, compared to Rishi Sunak’s 60,399, to become only Britain’s third female prime minister.

This was a leadership race closer than predicted.

So, after her coronation, what’s Truss’s plan to heal the UK’s pandemic-ravaged economy, how does she plan to sort those sky-high energy bills, or is she just a one-percenter, tax-cutting PM? 

We’re joined by the Evening Standard’s deputy political editor, David Bond, to unpick the latest developments and examine Truss's priorities.
