Liz Miserables – Weekly Edition
With Liz Truss set to be crowned Prime Minister – who will be in the backbench Tory cabal keeping her on her toes? What will they pressure her on? Plus, we assess how Boris Johnson and his fellow journalists-turned-politicians have warped the media during his time in office. And ahead of the return to school, we discuss what education changes we’d make. This week’s guest is actress, screenwriter and author Emma Kennedy.
“For somebody who’s said she’s going to stand up to Putin it’s strange Truss is scared of Nick Robinson.” – Emma Kennedy
“The list of Truss’s failures are extensive, I can’t think of anything she has done that has improved my life.” – Gavin Esler
“You can’t balance people who tell the truth with people who lie. The BBC has to take that seriously.” – Gavin Esler
