News Roundtable: The Race for No.10: Sunak vs. Truss

With Otto English & Esther Krakue


In this week’s ‘News Roundtable’ episode, host Chris Wright joins Otto English,  journalist and author, and Esther Krakue, political commentator, broadcaster, and panelist on TalkTV.

The episode begins with the panel sharing their thoughts on the final two Conservative Party candidates, Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak, who are both vying to be the next leader of their party and the country. They discuss the nature of today’s politicians who only worry about optics and make empty promises to win elections. With our panel covering different sides of the political spectrum, they take time to appreciate each other’s views and their ability to discuss their beliefs with an open mind in the hope of finding common ground.

The discussion moves to recognize Liz Truss’s favorability to win over Rishi Sunak. They reflect on why Sunak is unpopular with Conservative voters and explore what a future government under Liz Truss would look like. 

Together, the panel makes predictions on who would defeat Keir Starmer at the next  General Election and discuss Boris Johnson’s future endeavours.

They wrap up the episode by discussing the record-breaking heatwave in the UK this week and recognizing the importance of addressing the climate crisis.

All this and much more debated on this week’s Wright on the Nail!
