I think he‘s trapped. They didn’t want him, they voted for Truss and the IMF no doubt told the 1922 that she had to go straight away.Yeah I think that's what one of the main problems has been, loads of Tory's voted Tory and loads of LEavers voted Tory, so the result of that was 365 seats and them thinking they could do what they liked, and the far right driving the ship. No wonder it's ended up in probably the biggest cluster **** I've ever known since being able to vote.
Sunak knows he's beat, so is just trying to bluff his way through the hand and hope he hits gold somehow later down the line, but it's unlikely. He'll gradually distance himself from those who have helped create this mess, probably more so after 2025 if he can stay as Tory leader. It will be easier for him then too, as most of them will lose their seats, or face a challenge. Sunak's not as bad as the rest of them, but that's not praise, it just means he's less bad, and he's nothing like the common man, or 99.9% of voters. Wouldn't be surprised if he does a few things which will make Labour's job harder for the next term, his eyes will probably be on 2030, but they'll probably kick him out by then.
He could end up being Tory leader for the biggest kicking they've every had, and having that happen to him as PM, crazy. 95% of that damage is caused by those around him and those preceding him I think, but he seemingly didn't do much to stop it either.
No sympathy for Rishi though half the problems are his own from the lockdown cash splash.
