The Episode “Is Liz Truss doomed?” of “The News Agents
It’s been a chaotic week in British politics. The slide of sterling, Bank of England interventions and a record poll showing a 33-point lead for Labour. Prime Minister Liz Truss is just three weeks into the job, and next week she’ll have to face the party, and nation, at Conservative Party Conference. Can she survive this? Lewis is joined by former Conservative MP David Gauke and former advisor to Tony Blair, Baroness Sally Morgan.
And, across the Atlantic, a left-wing politician is vying to oust an unabashedly conservative, populist president. But this isn’t North America, it’s in Brazil. What’s the mood in the country as it prepares to go to the polls on Sunday?
