Europe Editor and Presenter

Rishi Sunak will become Britain’s next prime minister after his only remaining rival in the Tory leadership contest bowed out.

His challenge is both to placate his party, and win the trust of the country.

We spoke to Katy Balls, deputy political editor of the Spectator, and Sangita Myska, who is a journalist and radio presenter.
