As Truss and Sunak set out their economic plans, we discuss the viability of ‘Trussonomics’ and ‘Hedge Fund socialism’. Plus, what will the next Prime Minister mean for Britain’s standing on the world stage? And ten years after the London 2012 opening ceremony, our panellists look back on the last time the UK felt like a place to be proud of.
“Every time they talk about tax cuts, that’s less money for public services.” - Miatta Fahnbulleh
“Sunak talks a more credible game, whereas Liz is away with the fairies.” - Miatta Fahnbulleh
“Tory politicians don’t care what they do with power, they just want to get their hands on it.” - Tom Peck
“The only hope for the country now is Tory defeat in two years time.” - Tom Peck
“I can imagine the international reaction to Sunak and Truss is ‘who?’.” - Arthur Snell
“The opening ceremony projected Britain at its best. We’ve now fallen so foul of that.” - Miatta Fahnbulleh
