The former prime minister used a chat in Washington DC final week to say her efforts to slash taxes had been “sabotaged” and the “deep state” was in charge for the failure of her premiership.

In her speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) she stated: “Conservatives are now operating in what is a hostile environment and we essentially need a bigger bazooka in order to be able to deliver.”

Labour says her actions are “incredibly damaging” to democracy and has known as on Mr Sunak to behave.

Chair of the Labour Party Anneliese Dodds additionally accused Ms Truss of “propagating conspiracy theories” and “associating with individuals who have actually praised the far right in our country”. She instructed Sky News: “That’s deeply disturbing, and we’ve not seen any action being taken.”

Labour’s Shadow Paymaster General Jonathan Ashworth, wrote in a letter to Mr Sunak, demanding he take motion.

He wrote: “For a senior politician to engage in spreading such blatant conspiracy theories is incredibly damaging to our democracy, our institutions and social cohesion.

“For a former prime minister to make such remarks, while on an international visit to a country with whom the UK shares a special relationship which upholds liberal values is an unforgivable lowering of the office of prime minister which lessens the United Kingdom’s standing in the world and needs to be acted upon.
