Liz Truss’s mea culpa moment

11 min listen

Despite rejecting the Office for Budget Responsibility’s offer of a forecast to accompany last week’s so-called fiscal event, this morning it appears that the government have u-turned. What can we expect from the OBR’s statement ahead of the November budget?

Also on the podcast, after last night’s YouGov poll put Labour ahead by 33 points, how has the news been received by Conservative MPs? Will Truss row back on her economic plans?

Katy Balls speaks to Fraser Nelson and James Forsyth.

Produced by Natasha Feroze and Oscar Edmondson.
