Picking Cain's Brains

<< < (64/64)

Doktor Howl:
Okay, Cain, what's the scoop on Rishi Sunak?  Never heard of him.

Anna Mae Bollocks:
Me either. Everybody seemed to be worried it would be Johnson, Braverman, or Patel. Or Coffey:



This is one of those "The devil you know is better than the devil you don't" things, isn't it?

Cain:

He's twice as rich as the King of England.

Literally that's all you need to know, it tells you everything about him. But for a brief rundown, he's a creature of the banks, he was willing to serve in Boris Johnson's cabinet, he has the same cavalier belief that he is above the rules that Boris Johnson does and he's already mislead Parliament, engaged in antisemitic dogwhistles and re-appointed significant nutters and criminals to high office.

He is more competent than Truss, probably one of the most competent front bench Tories in all honesty. But given their baseline competence, you shouldn't expect much.

Why don't they just say "fuck it" and put Rees-Mogg in?

Cain:
He's pissed off the half of the party that still have holiday homes in reality. Sunak, who is one of those, noticeably banished him to the back benches, because the man's not only malevonent he's useless, even by current Tory party standards. Putting him in power would be even worse than Truss.

Plus, remember, this was an MP stitch-up this time around, and not the party membership. The party membership are insane, which is why they wanted Truss. The MPs actually have to worry about re-election, which is why they rallied around the more moderate and competent candidate, relatively speaking, while everyone else stood down. The candidate they can actually potentially not get wiped out in a future election with, unlike Truss or Rees-Mogg. Sunak did have glowing profiles written about him for his Covid budget measures, after all.
