Host Ailbhe Rea tells the inside story of Liz Truss’ chaotic, historic 49 days in No. 10 Downing Street, via candid interviews with those in the room where it happened.
Speaking publicly for the first time about that turbulent period, Truss’ former special adviser Hugh Bennett and ex-Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng’s former aide Celia McSwaine lift the lid on life inside Truss’ Downing Street — and how it all went wrong in six short weeks. They are joined by Truss’ former speechwriter Asa Bennett, her biographers Harry Cole and James Heale, and her political opponent, Labour’s Pat McFadden. Using their voices alongside multiple off-record-interviews, Ailbhe retells one of the most extraordinary stories in modern British politics — the rise and fall of the 49-day prime minister.
