Married well and probably went to private school but like Blair is relatable provincial middle class. Still an unknown quantity though and could just be this year’s Rory Stewart/Cleggmania/John Moore (a blue eyed boy who caught Thatcher’s eye and was touted as the next PM by every media outlet for about six months. And rose without trace).Samanfur wrote: ↑Sat Oct 03, 2020 2:43 pmAs I've said before: Sunak's the one I'm most worried about.
He's about my age, and he cut his teeth and learned about political operation and presentation whilst Tony Blair was actually popular.
He's Tory enough to do real damage, and slick and smart enough to know how to package it so that people who aren't particularly poitically or media-literate would not only vote to cut their own throats, but thank him for giving them the privilege when they did it.
The only thing that would handicap him is him being a bit too brown for the 'social conservatives'.
