He was leading the front page of every major British newspaper.
“Unite or die – a warning to Tory MPs of cynicism,” read the Guardian banner headline under a photo of the 42-year-old Conservative Party leader welcoming the hero to the party’s head office in London.
The report said that Sunak “will become the third Conservative prime minister in less than two months and the fifth Conservative prime minister in six years”, the report said, adding that “he will also make history as the first Hindu to lead the country.” Echoing a similar sentiment, The Mail headline read “A New Dawn for Britain” with the sub-headline: “Rishi Sunak becomes our youngest modern PM – and the first one with Asian heritage”.
Striking a similar flamboyant note, The Sun said, “The force is with you, Rishi” with the main image showing him holding a lightsaber.
However, not all media outlets were happy with Sunak becoming the new Prime Minister of the UK.
In a scathing attack on Sunak, The Mirror in its banner headline asked “our new (unelected) PM” “Who voted for you?” Describing him as “twice richer than the king”, its main story states that he will now “preside over brutal cuts in public spending”.
With the title “Death of Democracy”, Scotland’s Daily Record was even more critical of the craze.
Sunak has a net worth of over 700 million pounds. Besides owning a mansion in Yorkshire, Sunak and his wife Akshata also own a property in Kensington, central London.
Meanwhile, The Financial Times focused on the economic challenges that lie ahead for the former investment banker-turned-politician craze.
“Markets look forward to a ‘sluggish dividend’ in the wake of truss unrest”, it quoted Tory lawmakers as saying they hoped the craze “will reassure markets and help reduce borrowing costs”.
The Times highlighted Sunk’s warning to the Tories that “failure to fix the cracks will ‘finish’. [the] Celebration”.
“The PM aims to bring the warring factions together for a ‘one shot’ to end the economic crisis,” The Telegraph said. Sunak lost the race for prime minister to fellow Conservative leader Liz Truss on 5 September. Truss stepped down last Thursday after serving 45 days in office after revolting in his cabinet over his economic policies.
