Kwasi Kwarteng is flying back to London for crisis talks with Liz Truss amid turmoil in the Tory Party and intense speculation he will have to dismantle key elements of his controversial mini-budget.
The Chancellor cut short his visit to the annual meeting of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Washington DC as Conservative MPs questioned whether he and the Prime Minister can survive the coming days.

“The lies have got bigger and bigger and they’ve doubled down each time and they’re now lying to cover up the lies.”
