    ‘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.

    Is the death of Mahsa Amini igniting the debate about women’s rights in Iran?

    Is the death of Mahsa Amini igniting the debate about women’s rights in Iran?

    Mahsa Amini, 22, died last week following her arrest by Iran's morality police for "unsuitable attire" after she allegedly wore her hijab too loosely. Her death has unleashed a nationwide flood of protests over human rights, security and an economy reeling from international sanctions.

    On the Sky News Daily Niall Paterson speaks to Alistair Bunkall, Sky's Middle East correspondent who has been speaking exclusively to Mahsa Amini's cousin. Plus we hear from Dr Sanam Vakil, Middle East expert at the Chatham House think tank and Shadi Sadr, Iranian lawyer and human rights advocate about the protests and the impact they could have in Iran.

    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.
