Basically right but list of errors also includes:
- no OBR forecast
- no attempt to show how it was fiscally sustainable
- ignoring context of rates already rising + huge current account deficit
- sacking 'orthodox' top official
- allowing fiscal 'radicalism' briefing all summer

If Truss-Kwarteng had stuck to energy price cap, reversing National Insurance rise + stopping planned rise in corporate tax, adverse market reaction would have been avoided. All widely expected. It was unnecessary cuts in income tax that did it + loose talk of more to come.
