"They are not really in control. We have an illusion of democracy in this country. If you think Boris is the one making the decisions, if you think that Liz Truss is going to be the one making the decisions for this country, then I'm afraid you're completely out of touch with reality."—Matt Le Tissier We welcome to the programme the football legend Matt Le Tissier, who joins us to talk about his experience of speaking out against aspects of the UK government's response to the so-called "pandemic" during the last two and a half years, and to share with us about his ongoing efforts to persuade footballing authorities to investigate the cause(s) of—what he believes to be—the worrying rise in cardiac-related events among fellow footballers. We also chat about his remarkabale career, the reasons why he has earned the affectionate nickname "Le God", and I get schooled in some of the basics about The Beautiful Game. Throughout his professional club career Matt Le Tissier played for Southampton Football Club. Affectionately dubbed "Le God" and a footballing "geniius" by adoring Southampton fans for his creative and techincal brilliance as an attacking midfielder, Le Tissier became the first footballer to score one hundred goals in the Premier League, won eight "caps" for England, and is listed by UEFA as one of the top penalty scorers of all time. After retiring from the game, Le Tissier turned to broadcasting, and for fifteen years he regularly appeared on the Sky Sports programme "Soccer Saturday" until August 2020.

Liz Truss þykir hafa staðið sig vel er hún stóð fyrir svörum í fyrsta sinn sem forsætisráðherra í neðri málstofu breska þingsins. Skemmtanagildi fyrirspurnatímans þótti þó minna en þegar Boris Johnson var forsætisráðherra. Þau Keir Starmer, leiðtogi Verkamannaflokksins, tókust mest á um skattamál en Truss staðfesti það sem hún sagði í kosningabaráttunni í Íhaldsflokknum að hún ætlaði að lækka skatta og örva efnahagslífið þannig. Truss kynnir í dag umfangsmiklar ráðstafanir vegna gífurlegra hækkana á orkuverði, verðbólgu og þrenginga fólks vegna þess. Ráðstafanirnar verða fjármagnaðar með lántökum. Rishi Sunak keppinautur hennar um leiðtogaembættið í Íhaldsflokknum sagði að efnahagsstefna Truss og fyrirhugaðar skattalækkanir væru algerlega ábyrgðarlausar. Stjórnarandstaðan vill að efnahagsráðstafanir verði fjármagnaðar með hvalrekaskatti á orkufyrirtæki sem flest skila ofurhagnaði. Truss hefur verið núið um nasir að andstaða hennar við hvalrekaskatt færi milljarða til hinna ríkustu og fyrirtækja sem græði á tá og fingri, fyrirtækja eins og Shell, og það hefur verið rifjað upp að Liz Truss starfaði fyrir Shell. Hún varði þessar fyrirhuguðu skattalækkanir með því að segja að ekki væri hægt að skattleggja sig til hagvaxtar, vöxtur fengist með því að laða að fjárfestingar, hafa lága skatta og breyta kerfinu svo hlutir gengju hraðar fyrir sig, þannig væri hægt að skapa störf og tækifæri um allt landið. Þórunn Elísabet Bogadóttir og Guðrún Hálfdánardóttir ræddu bresk stjórnmál við Boga Ágústsson í Heimsglugganum. Þau ræddu einnig Noura al-Qahtani, sem var dæmd í 45 ára fangelsi í Sádí-Arabíu fyrir að flekka mannorð Mohammed bin Salmans krónprins og Salmans konungs og taka þátt í athöfnum sem "grafa undan öryggi og stöðugleika ríkisins". Henni var einnig gefið að sök að hafa lýst stuðningi við fólk sem hefur "að markmiði að veikja konungdæmið" og fylgja þeim á Youtube. Hún var einnig dæmd fyrir að hafa lítilsvirt tákn ríkisins, hafa farið fram á að handtekið fólk yrði leyst úr haldi og hindrað rannsókn með því að eyðileggja og fela farsíma sem hún hafi notað við glæpi sína. Svo var hún dæmd fyrir að eiga bannaða bók. Að lokum var minnst á að skoðanakannanir í Svíþjóð benda til þess að hnífjafnt sé á milli fylkinga hægri og vinstri blokkanna í landinu. Þar verður kosið á sunnudag. Nýjustu kannanir spá mið- og vinstriflokkum örlítið meira fylgi og að þeir fái 177 þingsæti en hægriflokkarnir 172.

El turno de Liz Truss

La ContraCrónica

La hasta ahora ministra de Exteriores del Reino Unido, Liz Truss, ha conseguido imponerse en la carrera para liderar el Partido Conservador y convertirse así en primera ministra. Truss, que tiene 47 años y era muy cercana a Boris Johnson, juró el cargo ayer y tiene por delante poco más de dos años de mandato hasta que concluya la presente legislatura. En las elecciones primarias se midió contra Rishi Sunak, antiguo ministro de hacienda de Johnson, promocionándose como una liberal convencida partidaria de los bajos impuestos y de la reducción del tamaño del Estado para revivir una economía moribunda. Un planteamiento, en definitiva, no muy diferente al de Margaret Thatcher hace ya cuarenta años. Y como Thatcher en 1979, Truss se enfrenta a un inagotable cúmulo de problemas, especialmente económicos. La economía del Reino Unido cae a plomo desde hace meses, la inflación supera el 10% y los efectos combinados del Brexit y la pandemia han puesto en jaque a varios sectores ocasionando un gran descontento que se ha podido ver este verano en forma de huelgas y movilizaciones sindicales. No lo va a tener fácil. A diferencia de Johnson, Truss no cuenta con clientela propia dentro del Partido Conservador y las encuestas muestran que disfruta de un apoyo muy limitado entre la opinión pública. Su victoria sobre Sunak no fue precisamente aplastante. Le ganó por sólo 14 puntos. Consiguió el 57% de los votos de los militantes del partido frente al 43% de Sunak. Los programas que ambos presentaron para liderar el partido eran muy similares. Truss y Sunak diferían fundamentalmente en lo relativo a la política fiscal. Truss se presentó como una reformadora y prometió reducir los impuestos de inmediato para impulsar el crecimiento. Sunak, por su parte, interpretó el papel de cauteloso tecnócrata cuyo objetivo principal es controlar la inflación antes de practicar reforma alguna. Entre los votantes conservadores Sunak era claramente el favorito, no así entre los afiliados del partido. En las primarias sólo votaban estos últimos (172.000), así que el resultado final se tenía más o menos claro desde finales de julio, cuando Truss y Sunak se quedaron solos en la carrera. Ahora que ya está decidido el sucesor toca preguntarse qué pasará. Según están las cosas, parece indudable que Truss va a encontrarse con una presión tremenda. Los precios de la energía están por las nubes y se avecina una recesión que tendrá que lidiar ella sola. Los salarios reales están cayendo a su ritmo más rápido en los últimos 20 años y el malestar es generalizado en todo el país. Truss pretende combatir la crisis con un electroshock de medidas liberales que fue desgranando una a una durante las primarias. Quiere, por ejemplo, eliminar buena parte de las regulaciones heredadas de la época en la que el Reino Unido pertenecía a la Unión Europea, facilitar la inversión y bajar los impuestos. Suena bien la receta, pero está por ver que eso le salga con tan pocos apoyos y en un ambiente tan convulso como el actual.

Seguimos con la agenda puesta en los temas internacionales. A una semana de la muerte del líder mundial y Premio Nobel de la Paz, Mijaíl Gorbachov (91 años) nos acercamos a la figura de este hombre que cambió en gran medida el curso de los acontecimientos que derivaron en el fin de la guerra fría con la caída del Muro de Berlín (el derrumbe de las dictaduras del este europeo), el retiro de las tropas rusas de Afganistán y el desmembramiento de las antiguas repúblicas que formaron la unión soviética. También firmó un histórico tratado de desarme nuclear con Ronald Reagan. Probablemente con la vertiginosidad de los acontecimientos del día a día no dimensionamos la historia reciente. Lo cierto es que Gorbachov fue el artífice de esos y otros cambios que tuvieron profundas repercusiones internacionales y domésticas, como las políticas de la Perestroika (reestructuración) y de la Glasnost (transparencia) que tiraron abajo el sistema totalitario de Lenín y Stalin. Gorbachov mostró siempre aversión al uso de la fuerza para resolver conflictos políticos, razón por la cual la Primera Ministra británica Margaret Tatcher veía en él un aliado en la construcción de confianza, pese a sus abismales diferencias ideológicas. Y hablando de la primera Ministra del Reino Unido, justo este martes avanza el proceso para la instalación en las próximas horas de la nueva líder y sucesora de Boris Johnson, la exministra de exteriores Liz Truss de apenas 47 años y una vastísima experiencia política. La líder conservadora, que le ganó la elección a su compañero, el exministro de economía Rishi Sunak, deberá enfrentar una situación interna complejísima, con una inflación que podría llegar al 18% y altos costos de energía, que no le darán tregua más que para formar gobierno. De la encrucijada del otrora socio de la Unión Europea y el contexto económico también afectado por la guerra que lleva adelante Vladímir Putin, el autócrata que arrasó con el legado de Gorbachov, conversamos con el ex embajador de Costa Rica en Londres y ex Canciller de la República, Enrique Castillo.

Liz Truss växte upp i Leeds i norra England och framhåller ofta sin bakgrund som otypisk för en konservativ politiker. Men vid 47 års ålder har Truss en lång politisk karriär bakom sig. Hon har varit minister under tre konservativa primärministrar, nu senast utrikesminister i Boris Johnsons regering. Under sin kampanj har Truss upprepat löften om skattesänkningar. Och på måndagen stod det alltså klart att Liz Truss löften gått hem hos partiets medlemmar och att hon besegrat partikamraten Rishi Sunak i kampen om ledarposten i Tories.Jämförs ofta med Margaret Thatcher"Den nya järnladyn" har blivit ett epitet som återkommer när det gäller Liz Truss. Men åsikterna går isär om hur rättvis jämförelsen med landets första kvinnliga premiärminister Margaret Thatcher egentligen är. Även de många politiska u-svängar som Liz Truss stått för har fått stort utrymme i kampen om partiledarposten, inte minst att Liz Truss helt bytt fot i fråga om Brexit. Hur länge kommer u-svängarna att förfölja Truss när hon nu flyttar in på 10 Downing Street?

As predicted, Liz Truss has beaten Rishi Sunak in the race to become the next prime minister of the UK. She won the Tory leadership contest by a comfortable majority, securing 81,326 votes (57 per cent) to Sunak's 60,399 (43 per cent). Anoosh Chakelian, Rachel Wearmouth, Freddie Hayward and Ben Walker discuss her promises to “deliver” in a muted victory speech, why polls predicted a landslide victory that didn't quite emerge, and the series of daunting challenges that lie ahead for her – including economic crisis and an all-round lack of popular support.

After a long summer of hustings, Liz Truss has finally been confirmed today as the next leader of the Conservative party. As she gets the keys to Downing Street, she'll finally be able to carry out her vision of Sino-British relations. But what is that vision? On the latest Chinese Whispers, Cindy Yu speaks to Sam Hogg, editor of the must-read Beijing to Britain newsletter, about what we know about Truss's views on China so far. Will she declare a genocide in Xinjiang? What is an acceptable level of trade with Beijing? The difficulty for Truss is that she has never had to balance her opinions on China with the wider remit of government (for example, when it comes to the trading relationship that she lambasted her rival Rishi Sunak for pursuing, while at the Treasury). As Sam points out, taking the example of declaring a genocide in Xinjiang (something she has privately expressed support for):  ‘When you officially recognise that a genocide is taking place, that puts an onus on the country that has done so to try and actively stop that, using a variety of means (that could be sanctions for example). With that in mind, one can see why it's a useful campaign pledge, but a difficult policy to carry out once in power'Then she might be held hostage by China hawks on the backbenches – those MPs like Iain Duncan Smith who have lent her his support, but may want to see her be as vocally sceptical of China in Downing Street as she has been so far. In that case, there could be a vibe similar to how the hardline Brexiteers held previous Conservative prime ministers to ransom on seeing through their visions. ‘She's made a series of political contracts with various backbenchers about how hawkish she is going to be towards China. And each of these backbenchers will have a limited amount of patience', Sam points out. We won't have long to find out as she gets her feet under the desk at No. 10 and, in a couple of months, meets with President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit in Indonesia.

ROYAUME-UNI : APRÈS BORIS, QUI ? – 03/09/22 Experts : Philip TURLE - Journaliste britannique, chroniqueur international à France 24 Agnès POIRIER - Correspondante en Grande-Bretagne à L'Express Catherine MATHIEU - Économiste à l'OFCE, spécialiste du Royaume-Uni et des questions européennes Clémence FOURTON - Maîtresse de conférences en études anglophones à Sciences-Po Lille Le vote est terminé, il est crucial. Les quelques 200.000 membres du parti conservateur britannique ont été appelé à voter jusqu'à hier pour désigner leur nouveau leader, celui ou celle qui succédera à Boris Johnson au poste de Premier ministre dès mardi prochain. Le nom du vainqueur sera annoncé la veille, lundi 5 septembre. Selon les instituts de sondage, la ministre des Affaires étrangères Liz Truss est donnée favorite face à son rival Rishi Sunak. Ce serait la troisième femme à faire son entrée au 10 Downing Street après Margaret Thatcher et Theresa May. C'est donc la fin de l'ère Johnson outre-manche. Trois années marquées par une série de scandales et la rupture avec l'Union européenne. Un divorce difficile qui a exacerbé les problèmes économiques : l'inflation est aujourd'hui record et la croissance en berne. Les pénuries de marchandises et de main d'oeuvre se sont multipliées également, alors que les exportations vers l'UE sont maintenant au ralenti. La personne qui remplacera Boris Johnson aura donc fort à faire face, entre un parti cabossé par les scandales et un pays en pleine crise. Le Royaume-Uni est en effet le membre du G7 le plus gravement frappé par l'inflation. Celle-ci pourrait atteindre les 22 % en janvier prochain. Avec des factures d'énergie qui seront 80 % plus importantes qu'un an plus tôt, l'hiver sera rude dans les foyers britanniques. Plus de 129 000 citoyens ont d'ailleurs signé la pétition « Don't Pay UK » qui incite à ne pas régler ses factures d'énergie à partir du 1er octobre. La hausse exponentielle des dépenses énergétiques force déjà des millions de personnes à choisir entre se nourrir ou se chauffer l'hiver prochain. Autre bilan à tirer des années Bojo : celui concernant son vaste programme « Global Britain ». Celui-ci visait à restaurer la grandeur de la Grande-Bretagne post-Brexit, et à lui redonner de la valeur sur la scène internationale. Le développement d'une politique pro-business pour une meilleure attractivité était un des leviers, mais les résultats restent nuancés. Sur le plan géopolitique, Boris Johnson a indéniablement chercher à exister, entre visites surprises à Kiev et unité affichée avec Joe Biden. Mais l'accord de libre échange tant vantée par Johnson avec les Etats-Unis ne parvient pas à se conclure. Les difficultés apparaissent aussi au sein même du Commonwealth, cette vaste organisation intergouvernementale composée de 54 anciennes colonies. L'empire paraît aujourd'hui se déliter, l'île de la Barbade, par exemple, s'est affranchit l'an dernier de la couronne britannique en se déclarant République. Alors, qui pour remplacer Boris Johnson ? Quel bilan faire de son mandat ? Quelle serait la politique menée par Liz Truss si elle lui succède ? Comment le Royaume-Uni peut-il faire face à la crise économique ? Quelle peut être encore la place de la Grande-Bretagne à l'international ?

In this mini-series of the New Economics Podcast, we'll discover how our economy has been run over the past few years - and look at the key battlegrounds for those fighting to change the rules. Over the last few years, neoliberalism – the economic model that has dominated since Margaret Thatcher was PM – has taken a hit. Big spending and state intervention have been the name of the game, as the government scrambled to get to grips with the pandemic. While Boris Johnson gets ready to pack up his things, we still don't know who will be replacing him in Number 10. The two final contenders, Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss, have been described in the press as “channelling the blue-suited ghost of Thatcher”. So, have the last few years solidified a new kind of economic mainstream? Or will Johnsonism be swept aside once the new PM has unpacked their toothbrush? In the first episode of this special mini-series we're asking: has neoliberalism hit the buffers?

New sexual misconduct allegations have been made about a cabinet minister and a top Number 10 aide who serve at the heart of Boris Johnson's government according to a Sky News investigation. They've published testimony from two women who give detailed, first-hand accounts of what they claim happened to them when one was assaulted and the other groped by political figures who are both now in senior roles. Liz Bates is the political correspondent at Sky News and presenter of the Open Secret Podcast. The race to be the next Prime Minister comes to an end of Monday, when either Liz Truss or Rishi Sunak will enter Number 10. Ella Robertson McKay has recently interviewed both candidates as the National Chair of the Conservative Young Women group – which represents female party members under the age of 35. Ella joins Anita to discuss what each candidate is offering to young women and what Ella's members think the winner should prioritise. At the start of lockdown in spring 2020 two friends living in Hastings set up a Facebook group for friends to experience the excitement of dressing up on a Friday and getting read to go out when everybody was forced to stay at home. The “Frock up Friday” movement was born and within three weeks the group had 10,0000 members worldwide and now two years later, they number 15,000 and are still growing. The friends who founded the group call themselves the “Mother Frockers” – Beverli Francis and Suzie Simms – and they'll be joining Anita Rani this morning to talk about their picture book which details many of the fabulous outfits members share, their festival this weekend for online friends to finally meet up in person, as well as their plans for the future. In July the healthcare charity Nuffield Health published data which showed that 47% of women had done no vigorous exercise in the past year. It was quickly pointed out that there might be lots of reasons for this - lack of time and money for example but there are other factors too. Every Body Outdoors is a group of women who are determined to fight for clothing and kit which fits them and they want to see larger and plus-sized people out and doing exercise, Charlotte Petts joins 5 of the group in the Brecon Beacons as they walk and talk about their campaign and their experiences.
