Rishi Sunak is the youngest UK prime minister for two centuries and the first British Asian to lead the country. His ascent to power has been impressive but will Sunak's policies be distinct enough from his two recent predecessors – the former mired in scandal, the latter ridicule – to steer the UK out of one of the most torrid political eras of modern times? To discuss it, journalist and broadcaster Philippa Thomas is joined by the academic, pollster and author of forthcoming book, Values, Voice and Virtue, Matthew Goodwin. Plus, columnist for the FT, author of Extra Time, and former head of the Prime Minister's Policy Unit under David Cameron, Camilla Cavendish.
