15 things that lasted longer than Liz Truss as prime minister - from the Daily Star lettuce to long life milk
Liz Truss resigned as Prime Minister on 20 October 2022 - making her the shortest-serving PM in history
Liz Truss resigned as Prime Minister after just 44 full days in office on Thursday 20 October.
Her short time at number 10 means that Truss is now the shortest serving Prime Minister in British history.
After battling an open revolt from the Conservatives demanding her departure, Truss spoke from a lectern in Downing Street on Thursday afternoon (20 October), where she announced she had told King Charles III she was resigning, as she recognised she “cannot deliver the mandate” which Tory members gave her just over six weeks ago.
So, as the second Tory leadership race in just less than four months begins, we thought that we’d take a look at some of the things that have outlasted Truss’ very short reign as PM.
