BRITAIN has a new Chancellor of the Exchequer, second only in power to the prime minister. But who is he? No f**king clue whatsoever.
His name is Rishi Sunak
No, not ringing any bells. Not even in an era when any backbench gobsh*te with provocative views on Brexit can build a national media profile, for example, full-time idiot Mark Francois.
He was made chief secretary to the Treasury last July
Didn’t hear about that. Is this like when Chelsea fire their manager and promote the assistant manager way beyond any of their previous experience because really the chairman’s picking the team?
He likes Star Wars, Coca-Cola and Southampton FC
These are not characteristics that make a person stand out in a crowd, much less qualifications to take over control of the finances of the UK.
He’s a household name in India
This is like pop acts claiming to be ‘big in Japan’. It fails to be impressive, and is most likely untrue.
He’s a Brexiter living in a Georgian mansion in North Yorkshire
Common among Conservative Brexiters in government, but not exactly representative of ordinary Brexiters. Some of whom may not necessarily be keen on him for… reasons.
He supports Boris Johnson in all things and will never challenge him
Ah. He is the perfect Chancellor for a new government, a new decade and a new era of soaring British influence and prosperity. Until he isn’t and gets sacked and was rubbish all along.
