Rishi Sunak

Since moving into No. 10 Downing St. in October of last year, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has been plagued by the ghosts of his predecessors, Liz Truss and Boris Johnson, who were both ousted following disastrous forays into trickle-down economics and serial scandals, respectively.

Sunak’s administration has until Thursday afternoon to deliver over Johnson’s Covid-era text messages, diaries, and notebooks to a committee looking at Britain’s response to the pandemic. It is the most recent installment in what seems to be an endless reckoning with Johnson’s disorganised tenure.
