Does Rishi Sunak have what it takes to mend broken Britain? He has spoken, now he must go the way
Does Rishi Sunak have what it takes to mend broken Britain?
That’s the burning question I wanted to have answered when we met in the kitchen of his Downing Street flat, and I’m sure Sun readers and TalkTV viewers are just as interested to know.
In the last 30 years I have met nine British Prime Ministers – Thatcher, Major, Blair, Brown, Cameron, May, Johnson, Truss and now Sunak.
They were all very different in character and went through all sorts of different crises.

But none faced the sheer volume of massive obstacles that No10’s current resident has inherited.
The good news is that Sunak has no illusions about the magnitude of the challenge that he and his government face, and he knows it will take a lot of hard work – and luck! – to turn things around.
The bad news is that it all takes time and the patience of severely angry voters, and Sunak doesn’t have the luxury of counting on either before the next election.
By the time we wrapped up our 45 minute conversation I felt I knew our new leader a lot better and I was impressed.
Sunak seemed intelligent, thoughtful, more likeable than I’ve seen him in previous interviews, even surprisingly romantic, and absolutely determined to do whatever it takes to make things right.
He seems like a serious person who knows he’s doing a serious job.
Whether he can rescue the country from our current malaise or save the Tories from election oblivion remains to be seen, but if he fails it will not be for lack of effort.
I suspect voters will like Rishi Sunak more after this interview than before, especially when he talks about his wife.
But sympathy alone will not be enough.
He led the conversation, now he must walk the road or the long-suffering British people will be unforgiving at the ballot box.
