Commenting on the appointment of Rishi Sunak as new prime minister, Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said, “Changing the leader of Conservative Party, changes nothing for workers and communities who are being lined up for Austerity Mark Two. Yet again, workers and communities are paying for a crisis not of their making. The economy is broken.
“I will fight unashamedly for workers to get more money in their pockets. Today’s vote means Rishi Sunak will become the third UK prime minister in seven weeks. If democracy means anything to him, he should put his election, by Conservative MPs, to the test by calling a general election.”
