With yet another prime minister's resignation, the British government's 10 Downing Street looks like a revolving door. Analysts blame polarization, populism, a flawed system and poor leadership.
After a bruising first six weeks in office, the prime minister replaced her finance chief with former leadership rival Jeremy Hunt. But she still faces a barrage of criticism.
In a move to calm financial markets and her own Conservative Party, Prime Minister Liz Truss canceled planned tax cuts for corporations and replaced Kwasi Kwarteng as treasury head with Jeremy Hunt.
The tax cut was part of a package of unfunded cuts unveiled only days ago that sent the pound to record lows and was widely seen as politically toxic.
For the first time in British history, none of the four most senior Cabinet posts — prime minister, chancellor of the exchequer, foreign secretary and home secretary — are taken up by a white male.
