What started as a slight polling deficit for the Tories became a gulf. Labour’s lead soared to more than 30 points and ministers privately began putting Truss on notice. The unravelling Truss’s premiership had become a tinderbox. There was no need for ministerial resignations or no-confidence letters – the sense of inevitability that she could survive for only a few more days was overwhelming. That evening, she appointed a new cabinet, but she left Wendy Morton, the chief whip, and Thérèse Coffey, the deputy prime minister, to conduct junior ministerial hirings and firings. The political consequences for her of further undermining trust, transparency and the integrity of government could be huge. The number one trait voters are looking for in a new prime minister is honesty, even ahead of being in touch with ordinary people or a strong leader. Critics began speculating who would last longer – the prime minister, or a lettuce. In an effort to stay out of the fray, Truss delegated decisions to her most ardent supporter, Coffey.

As she was driven towards No 10 on the last leg of her round trip, the car made several detours to wait for a break in the rain in which Truss could make a speech, while a bin bag was temporarily used to protect the waiting, sodden podium. After marrying in 2000, they stayed together when revelations of Truss's affair with a married MP threatened to derail her career a few years later. An overwhelming number of the senior figures brought into the administration had limited experience running a Whitehall department, let alone the country. The entire legislative affairs team – in charge of drafting and timetabling bills – was replaced too. It was like she’d stripped off all the wallpaper, then the paint and floorboards too. There was basically zero institutional memory left,” one Truss-era cabinet minister said.Those who had been leading the campaign to oust Truss knew the moment had arrived. One told Graham Brady, the chair of the 1922 Committee, that there were now enough no-confidence letters from colleagues poised to be submitted to trigger a no-confidence vote. And so on Thursday morning, Brady traipsed across to No 10 to tell Truss she had lost the support of the parliamentary party. Since then the prime ministers' offspring in residence have only been babies or pre-teens and strenuously shielded from media intrusion. I don’t make promises I can’t keep and I am a straightforward person who tells it like it is,” she said at one party event.

Immediately after that mess had unfurled in parliament, half the parliamentary party drifted across to a reception to mark the 100th anniversary of the Carlton Club. Swilling champagne at the private members’ club situated on the edge of Mayfair, each peered at their phones for updates on the government’s imminent collapse. It was silly of Liz not to squeeze every ounce of goodwill out of people by being the one to appoint them, so things got off to a bad start on literally day one,” said one of those appointed that day. By mid-October, MPs were whispering that Truss had until Christmas to turn things around. But that was about to change.

During her Tory leadership campaign Truss said the girls, who reportedly attend state schools, were actively involved behind the scenes. In an attempt to avoid looking like Downing Street had descended into full-scale panic, eight BBC local radio interviews were set up. “They were, objectively, a disaster,” said one of her senior team. Over the course of an hour, interviewers from the radio stations in Leeds (where she grew up), Norfolk (she is the MP for South West Norfolk), Kent, Lancashire, Nottingham, Tees Valley, Bristol and Stoke-on-Trent unleashed the pent-up anger of millions of nervous Britons. The mini-budget was pencilled in for Friday 23 September, the final sitting day of the Commons before recess. Labour’s autumn conference would begin two days later and Truss thought the statement would “blow them out of the water”, leaving the opposition facing uncomfortable questions about whether they would support this tax cut or that.
