Episode details

In this episode, Adrian Goldberg hears listeners hopes and fears about the arrival of Liz Truss as Prime Minister. 

Truss arrives in the midst of a cost of living crisis that’s destined to get worse, with industrial unrest growing, the NHS in crisis, the ongoing fallout from Brexit, and with international tensions rising after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

If it’s a mess, it’s one she has helped create having held Cabinet positions since 2014, most recently serving as Johnson’s Foreign Secretary. Will her arrival at No.10 do anything to improve things?

Adrian hears from Byline Times editor Hardeep Matharu, Westminster correspondent Adam Bienkov, and Jeevun Sandher, an economist at Kings College, London.

Produced in Birmingham by Adrian Goldberg and Harvey White.
