Why is Liz Truss provoking China?

By Global

The MP for South West Norfolk has made a speech in Taiwan urging the UK Government to treat China as a security threat.

She's the first former PM to visit Taiwan since Margaret Thatcher.

China - which is seeking 'reunification' with Taiwain - has called it a 'dangerous stunt'. Many in Truss's own party feel the same way.

But is there sense in her message even if she's the wrong one to deliver it? And what is she hoping to achieve - for the world, her party and herself?

And, later, we speak to Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz about playing twins in her drama 'Dead Ringers', moves to curtail women's rights in the US, her husband James Bond, and Lewis' acorn.
