In his first speech since becoming Tory leader, Rishi Sunak warned that the UK faces a “profound economic challenge”. Faisal Islam, the BBC’s economics editor, is back with us to help profile our next PM and explore what ‘Sunakonomics’ might mean for the country and our finances.
Chris, who’s in Westminster, and Alex, who’s been talking to voters in Wakefield, also look at what happens next in the turbulent world of British politics and whether Sunak can succeed in an area where Liz Truss failed – uniting the various factions in the Conservative party.
Today’s Newscast was made by Daniel Wittenberg with Chris Flynn and Miranda Slade. The technical producer was Mike Regaard. The series producer is Tim Walklate. Thanks to the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.
