Host Ailbhe Rea goes behind the scenes at this week’s chaotic Conservative Party conference in Birmingham, with newly-installed leader Liz Truss already on the ropes.

The conference saw Truss openly criticized by members of her own government and forced to U-turn on a flagship tax cut, just 10 days after it was announced. Ailbhe gives the inside story from the biggest speeches, the fiery fringe meetings and the late-night drinks parties as Tory MPs despair at the new regime.
