News Roundtable   Sep 22, 2022

the UK-US trade deal & Liz Truss’ presence on the world stage

With Christina Patterson, Jemma Forte, Paul Duddridge and John Nicolson


In this week’s ‘News Roundtable’ episode, host Chris Wright is joined by journalist, writer & broadcaster, Christina Patterson, broadcaster, journalist and novelist, Jemma Forte, broadcaster and political commentator, Paul Duddridge, and member of parliament for Ochil & South Perthshire and SNP Shadow Culture Secretary, John Nicolson.

The conversation kicks off with the panel discussing how Liz Truss came across during Queen Elizabeth’s II funeral and comparing this to how Boris Johnson came across during his speech in the Commons. Has this historical event benefitted Liz Truss by taking the focus away from the government handover? 

The discussion moves on to debate whether or not the Archbishop of Canterbury referred to Boris Johnson during his sermon.

The panel considers why Joe Biden cancelled his meeting with Liz Truss. They debate the possibilities of a UK-US trade deal and reflect on the relationships between the US, the UK and the EU. Would the UK and the US have a trade deal without Brexit?

Finally, they discuss Liz Truss’ government policies and compare them to the previous Conservative party manifesto. 

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