In power for just 28 days - and for 10 of them politics was paused following the death of the Queen - it has been the worst possible start for Liz Truss. A (mini) budget unveiling £45bn of tax cuts without a fiscal framework, precipitating a £65bn emergency bond buying programme by the Bank of England to protect pension funds. The pound tanked, 1,000 mortgage deals were withdrawn from the markets in anticipation of an interest rates spike. And then a prime minister who was not the lady for turning, has announced a huge policy U-turn. So the question for the new prime minister was really a question of leadership - and judgement. How bad is it and, crucially, can Liz Truss win back control? She never had emphatic backing from the parliamentary party anyway - Rishi Sunak was initially their first choice.

Kim Jong Un is the young authoritarian supreme leader of North Korea; Donald Trump the elderly democratic head of the United States. Despite their very public war of words over Pyongyang's nuclear missle program, the two men actually have quite a bit in common. Both came to power with little to no prior experience and, since taking office, have attempted to make up for that inexperience by attempting to boldly assert themselves to skeptical audiences at home and abroad. The ensuing drama has pitted the dueling nuclear-armed egos against each other, and one appears to have gained the upper hand. At age 27, Kim became the world's youngest head of state, following his father's death in 2011. Unlike Kim Jong Il, Kim Jong Un didn't have decades to train for a position that placed him in charge of one of the most rigid, unforgiving political systems on the planet. Kim, now believed to be 33 years old, is no longer an unknown simply filling his father's shoes, nor is he technically even … [Read more...] about Is Kim Jong Un A More Qualified Leader Than Trump?
