    Isn't there a wide spectrum of Tories. From the left such as Boris and the hard right such as Truss.

    Agreed but Truss was a lurch to the right from a few years of left leaning policies. These two are both centre right so perhaps PM with a more diverse background could be beneficial. I was just pointing out that groups have a bias for people like temselves.

    A tory is a tory. End of.

    As for bias, seems to work in reverse when you have the children of immigrants sending nw immigrants to Rwanda.

    Colour of skin is irrelevant. Depth of pockets is all that counts.

    Corrected it for you. And yes I do believe snobbish elitism is a problem for the conservative party

    Finally connected the dots and figured out who Boris Johnson resembles.

    It had less of an effect on the pound than I expected.

    Sunak has yet to confirm his cabinet. Also, there was an overreaction to Truss's budget no doubt.
