Another U-turn as PM Liz Truss fights for her job

Britain’s new finance minister Jeremy Hunt has signalled further reversals from Prime Minister Liz Truss and said the PM has made mistakes as she battles to keep her job.

Just over a month into her term, Ms Truss fired Kwasi Kwarteng as her chancellor of the exchequer on Friday (local time) and scrapped parts of their controversial economic package.

With opinion poll ratings dire for both the ruling Conservative Party and the prime minister personally, many of her own lawmakers are asking, not if, but how Ms Truss should be removed.

Ms Truss has turned to Mr Hunt to help salvage her premiership less than 40 days after taking office.

The move and Mr Hunt’s decisive statements have led political commentators to question ‘Who’s in charge?’ and whether the prime minister has killed her own authority.
