    Cost of living: The price of hunger

    Cost of living: The price of hunger

    Long before the recent economic woes hitting the pound, mortgages and the price of essentials, a survey in April from The Food Foundation charity revealed nearly two and a half million people had said they’d not eaten for a whole day because they couldn’t afford or get access to food. Those numbers will now be much, much higher.

    On the Sky News Daily podcast with Niall Paterson, we examine a snapshot of what is happening in the supply chain - from farm to table - and its impact on all those in it.

    Guests: Anna Taylor, executive director at The Food Foundation charity; David Batterbee, a sheep and beef farmer in the Peak District; Nick Allen, chief executive of the British Meat Processors Association; and James Lowman, chief executive of the Association of Convenience Stores.

    BACKGROUND -

    Oksana, 35, works in overseas education. She lives with her husband, Seva, in an apartment complex in central Kyiv and has remained in the Ukrainian capital since the war started. 
    Many of Oksana’s closest friends have left the country to begin new lives in Europe. Some may never return. She’s determined to stay.

    Ilyas is an IT specialist and married father who fled from Kyiv to Lviv shortly after the war started. His wife Natalia, and two young sons are taking refuge in Poland.
    As of September 2022, Ilyas is back living in the family apartment in Kyiv and working, in part, for the Ukrainian government on various IT projects.

    Seva, 40, is a company CEO and husband to Oksana. Before the war, he travelled across Europe for business. Now, he makes regular supply drops of medical aid and rations to Ukrainian troops on the front line in Eastern Ukraine. He’s originally from a small village near Dnipro.

    ‘Where’ve you been?’: Can Liz Truss defend ‘Trussonomics’?

    ‘Where’ve you been?’: Can Liz Truss defend ‘Trussonomics’?

    Liz Truss has spoken for the first time since her chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng’s “mini-budget” pushed the pound to an all-time low, prompted the International Monetary Fund to urge her to re-evaluate her policies and forced the Bank of England to bail out the economy for £65bn.

    On the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson speaks to Mel Stride, the Conservative chair of the Treasury select committee, about why he’s calling on the government to release the costings for its economic plan and Jon Craig, Sky News’ chief political correspondent, about the brewing civil war within the Tory ranks.

    What’s happening with the UK economy?

    What’s happening with the UK economy?

    Since the government’s tax-cutting mini-budget last week, the pound has hit record lows against the dollar, mortgage providers have pulled hundreds of products and there has been damning criticism from the International Monetary Fund and an emergency intervention by the Bank of England.

    Critics have accused Liz Truss, the prime minister, and Kwasi Kwarteng, the chancellor, of being “economically illiterate”.

    On the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson looks at the economic arguments and the market reaction. He’s joined by Sky News business presenter Ian King, Martin Weale, a former member of the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee, and Jane Foley, a senior strategist at Rabobank.
