What’s more on this?

Professor of politics at University of Warwick from Limington United Kingdom speaks about sterling strengthens as rate on government bonds fall.

Do you have confidence that the Chancellor’s address will indeed reassure investors and calm the markets?

Well the initial signs this morning from the markets are quiet promising. It does seem as if the yield on guilt has dropped from the cost of service in the government. Debt has dropped and the initial signs are quiet encouraging. But a lot will depend on the content of the statement itself and how much that reassures the markets.

Professor, the Prime Minister is facing backlash from several Tory Members of Parliament. Do you think she will survive and why is distrust in Truss growing?

Wll I think the distrust is growing because of the disastrous electoral consequences of the mini budget which the government is now running back from. But in doing that, it’s losing it’s credibility. So there is now considerable pressure for a considerable bus to conservative party for her to depart because there has to be a mechanism for the Department probably. The thing that protects her the most is the fact that there’s no agreement on who a successor might be.

Professor, it looks like the chancellor is more in charge than the Prime Minister. What are your thoughts?

Well, I think yes, it’s the case the Prime Minister appears to be in the office and not in power and it’s the chancellor is making all the key decisions of going to make these revisions, further revisions to the mini budget that was announced initially when Liz Truss came into office so she is in a very weakend position.
