The PM Rishi Sunak probably thought he was going to have a good day today, but it has turned into a nightmare.
A tweet describing him has now gone viral, but let’s get to his awful day first.
To start with he had to bat away claims that the levelling up fund is being given to more affluent areas…including his own North Yorkshire constituency!
Sunak said he is “absolutely not” embarrassed that the military town of Catterick Garrison in his own constituency has benefited from £19m of funding, No 10 said.
Then he has been called out for his piece to camera without wearing a seatbelt.
If that wasn’t enough he also dodged a question on HS2…
He also defended taking a jet to Blackpool, saying he needs to do ‘lots of things in one day’
It was his third domestic flight in an RAF jet in 10 days.
With all this, and more, in mind one assumes that this Twitter user soaked all that in and then wrote: “Sunak is a very odd mixture of the past 4 Prime Ministers Same suits as Cameron, as robotic as May, as duplicitous as Johnson and as woefully out of his depth as Truss.”
But he wrote it yesterday!
A lot of people agreed…
