It’s been a month since Rishi Sunak became Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and so he’s now just three weeks off from staying at number 10 longer than Liz Truss did.
After the mini-budget disaster, Sunak was the safe pair of economic hands needed to calm things down, reassure markets and try to get the Conservatives back on track after disastrous polls.
But how long can the new prime minister keep the country and his party calm and quiet?
In this episode, our political editor Gary Gibbon looks at the first few weeks of Rishi’s administration and whether his statement in the fall will be enough to bolster support and ensure the Conservatives don’t take a beating in the next election.
