Truss: Cabinet Behind Growth Plan


UK Prime Minister Liz Truss has told Times Radio that her cabinet is "all unified behind the growth plan and behind what we have to do to get this country back on track."

  • Comes as Home Secretary Suella Braverman blames a Tory coup for forcing a government U-turn on lowering the top rate of tax.
  • Braverman: "Ultimately I am very disappointed that members of our own parliamentary party staged a coup effectively and undermined the authority of our prime minister in an unprofessional way."
  • Truss also nodded towards chatter of discontent on Tory benches: "I don't believe what people want now is an election."
  • Truss is now facing a second Tory rebellion over raising benefits in-line with inflation. Former Cabinet minister Grant Shapps said this morning that the next ten days are critical for Truss' premiership.
  • Shapps: “There is a limited period of time to turn things around from what’s been, you know, a choppy, difficult start. I think these next few days, by definition, is obviously the key moment […] The next ten days, of course, is a critical period, that goes without saying.”
