Liz Truss invited key Conservative Party lawmaker Graham Brady for talks in 10 Downing Street, fueling the sense that her premiership is on the brink of collapse after a series of humiliating U-Turns.

The meeting is potentially very significant because Brady represents rank-and-file Tory MPs and ultimately decides party rules for leadership contests. With events moving rapidly in Westminster, the unscheduled talks could well mark the beginning of the end for an administration in tatters.
