Is the UK on the brink of recession?

11 min listen

The ONS forecasts reveal that UK output fell by 0.2 per cent between July-September. Whilst not a recession yet, it is increasingly likely the next quarter will see another dip following a surge in interest rates. Will the government’s messaging change ahead of the Autumn Statement next week? Also on the podcast, Kate and James discuss Kwasi Kwarteng’s interview in The Times as he reflects on his short time as Chancellor. 

Isabel Hardman is joined by Kate Andrews and James Forsyth.

Produced by Natasha Feroze.
