Out of the Blue: The Inside Story of the Unexpected Rise and Rapid Fall of Liz Truss

  • This event has passed.
Friday 6th October 12:20 - 13:20 | Ballroom

Despite being written off and mocked by even her closest colleagues, Liz Truss slowly but determinedly achieved her goal of taking over 10 Downing Street – only to instantly plunge her administration into chaos and announce her resignation after a record-breaking 44 days. Award-winning political journalist Harry Cole will talk about the rise and fall of Liz Truss, the political landscape left behind and a look ahead to next year’s General Election and how to write a book in just eight weeks about a new Prime Minister – as her government collapses around you.
