Another day, another British Prime Minister.
Now the UK is to be led by Rishi Sunak who was selected as Conservative Party leader without contest after his primary competitors dropped out.
Demographically, he’s the first person of Hindu faith elected to the office, so perhaps it’s somehow fitting that his selection on occurred on the main day of the Diwali Festival of Lights.
Of Punjabi Indian descent, he’s also the first British Prime Minister of colour (at least by many definitions, although back in 1868 PM Benjamin Disraeli was of Jewish heritage).
He’s also the youngest prime minister in over 200 years, being 42 years old.
