ARE you a Tory party member who’s not keen on Rishi Sunak for a certain reason that’s unacceptable these days? Here’s why you’ll be voting for someone else.
He’s too good-looking
As the newspapers never tire of telling us, Sunak is incredibly good-looking. However we need a PM who won’t distract his colleagues with his male beauty. The last thing you need during a discussion about weapons for Ukraine is Nadine Dorries fainting or Therese Coffey having a screaming orgasm.
Liz Truss is extremely talented
Truss has ‘prime ministerial material’ written all over her. She can pretend to be a fighter pilot, she’s committed to Brexit after changing her mind, and if we need someone to lead the fight against cheese imports, Liz wouldn’t hesitate to deploy the SAS with a shoot-to-kill policy against French cheesemakers.
It’s a very strong field
There’s Penny Mordaunt, who made that hilarious ‘cock’ speech, Jeremy Hunt with his clever strategy of being less rancid than the others, and Suella Braverman, allegedly a qualified barrister. To name but a few. If Sunak doesn’t get your vote, it’s the stiff competition, not because he reminds you of a Muslim coming over here with their smelly food and Sharia law.
He’s used to better things
Sunak and his wife are fantastically wealthy, with numerous luxury homes. Moving to 10 Downing Street would be like living in a cramped, filthy Sunderland council house with a vicious staffie shitting everywhere. To his refined tastes, the best meals from the No. 10 kitchens would taste like a Rustlers microwave chicken burger. Yes, becoming PM wouldn’t be fair on Rishi.
It’s good to back the underdog
Sunak is way ahead in terms of parliamentary party backers, but there’s nothing more British than backing the underdog. What if you want to vote for Kemi Badenoch, who will definitely lose? Not that you will because in your book she might be a pot-smoking Rastafarian.
He’s too clever
Rishi clearly knows a thing or two, having made millions on a stock market bet that contributed to taxpayers bailing out the banks in 2008. Britain prefers a gifted amateur. Or just an amateur. Look how Boris kept us laughing during Covid. Sunak just isn’t the sort of totally inept clown every nation needs in a time of crisis.
You can’t wank over Rishi
The leadership contest still features some top totty for Tory men of a certain age. With sirens like Mordaunt, Dorries and Esther McVeigh (promised the deputy PM job by Hunt) at the top level of government, every trip to the garden shed with your Daily Mail will be a sexual adventure.
