As Rishi Sunak begins his new job this week, he will face the striking dynamic of having three former PMs, all of whom served in the last three years, looking over his shoulder in parliament. Sunak served in the cabinet of Boris Johnson.
Now, Johnson will have a close-up view of Sunak’s tenure from the benches behind him, with Liz Truss, who has vowed to continue serving her constituency of South West Norfolk. Former PM Theresa May denounced Johnson’s behavior during the coronavirus pandemic from two rows behind him in parliament. She also memorably refrained from clapping alongside her colleagues during his final question-and-answer session as PM.
