Rishi Sunak has told Liz Truss, his rival and the front-runner in the race to be the next UK prime minister, she can’t deliver both support for struggling British households this winter and stick to her flagship policy of tax cuts.

The way to tackle the cost of living crisis, caused by soaring energy and food bills, has become a key point of difference in the two candidates’ campaigns to replace Boris Johnson. Sunak, the former Chancellor of the Exchequer, is pledging more direct aid and Truss stressing the importance of allowing people to keep more of their money.
