The Heat: UK Politics

The Heat

Liz Truss is poised to become the 56th Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

She will replace Boris Johnson who was forced to resign after a slew of scandals. Truss will inherit one of the worst economic crises the nation has ever seen – worsened by the pandemic and the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

The Bank of England expects inflation to jump to 13 percent – sending the costs of living and energy soaring.
