Since the historically short-lived tenure of Liz Truss as prime minister of the United Kingdom (U.K.) came to an abrupt end late last month, the selection of Rishi Sunak as the country’s next political leader has left legacy media aglow with curiosity.
While some outlets like Time Magazine have gone the route of pushing speculative articles asking “Who is Rishi Sunak?” and “What kind of leader will [he] be?” others such as the BBC and The New York Times have published detailed biographies of Sunak’s personal and political life.
“Mr. Sunak, a former chancellor of the Exchequer, is expected to pull Britain back to more mainstream policies after Ms. Truss’s failed experiment in trickle-down economics … [and] is also likely to offer a stark contrast to the flamboyant style and erratic behavior of [former U.K. Prime Minister] Boris Johnson,” the Times article reads.
At 42 years old, Sunak is the youngest U.K. prime minister in modern times, and — most importantly to the race-obsessed press — is the first non-white person to hold the office. A member of the ruling Conservative Party, he previously served as the U.K.’s chief financial minister from 2020 to July 2022 under Johnson.
Noticeably absent from the media’s coverage of Sunak’s rise to power, however, is the lack of the overplayed “far-right” moniker. While many left-wing news firms went out of their way to label figures such as Italy’s new prime minister as some sort of right-wing fascist, the same cannot be said when it comes to their characterization of Sunak.
So, why the vast difference in coverage? The reason, perhaps, is because Sunak — much like most of the Conservative Party’s members — is not an actual conservative that champions national sovereignty and individualism, but a proponent of the very globalist ideology supported by legacy media that seeks to eradicate such principles.
Since taking over as prime minister last week, Sunak has already begun advancing many policies endorsed by leftists throughout Europe and the United States, namely with respect to energy. One of the first actions he took after being sworn into office was to reinstate a government ban on fracking, a safe and efficient way of extracting oil and natural gas from the earth that was permitted under Truss’s short premiership. In 2019, the U.K. had released a manifesto commitment stating that the government would not support the practice “unless the science shows categorically that it can be done safely.”
While seemingly ignoring that his citizens might freeze this winter as a result of Britain’s ongoing energy crisis, Sunak has also started solidifying ties with international organizations promoting climate alarmism, announcing in a Wednesday tweet that he will be attending the United Nations’ 2022 Climate Change Conference to deliver on “building a secure and sustainable future.”
Other actions taken by Sunak in his short tenure as prime minister to further grow the power and scope of Britain’s government include agreeing to a plan that seeks to raise taxes on the country’s citizens. According to a state Treasury official, the coming hike is due in part to the government’s “borrowing [of] hundreds of billions of pounds” during the Covid lockdowns.
Sunak’s Sorted History
Despite being the leader of Britain’s “conservative” party, Sunak’s pimping of “green energy” and big government policies should come as no surprise given his past history of collaborating with globalist organizations such as the World Economic Forum (WEF). Back in 2020, the then-Member of Parliament gave a keynote address at WEF’s Green Horizon Summit to discuss the “need to ensure a positive and fair transition to net zero [emissions] and protect our environment.” During his time as Britain’s chief financial minister, Sunak, a former Goldman Sachs banker, was also at the forefront of pushing a central bank digital currency (CBDC), a WEF-supported policy that could potentially give the U.K. government greater oversight of citizens’ financial activities and lead to the creation of a social credit system.
But Sunak’s concerning past doesn’t stop at the WEF. In recent years, Britain’s new prime minister has made numerous comments suggesting that under his leadership, the U.K. could begin taking a much laxer approach with respect to its relationship with China. In 2020, Sunak said that Britain should be “realistic” and “probably transactional” instead of “starry-eyed” when it comes to dealing with the communist regime, adding that China is going to be a major player in the world economy and that “it would be wrong to ignore that.”
Sunak would go on to give a speech a year later in which he claimed that it would be important for the U.K. to, as Breitbart News summarized, “take advantage of the emerging financial services sector in China through partnerships with the City of London.” Sunak also asserted a need for the two nations to partner on “global issues like health, ageing, climate and biodiversity,” and was pursuing a “complete sea change” in relations with Beijing as recently as January.
Like so many other “right-wing” politicians throughout Europe and the United States, Sunak is just another wolf dressed in sheep’s clothing. The “conservatism” of Britain’s new prime minister is nothing more than a facade for the leftist policies seeking to cripple the ability of citizens to provide for themselves and their families without government involvement. While events like Brexit may have allowed the British people to escape the clutches of globalist bodies like the European Union, they have a long way to go in realizing that the calls are coming from inside their own house.
