London: Even under Prime Minister Sunak, things are looking bad for the Tories – politics

Sitting in the front row of the government benches in the old and sometimes venerable House of Commons, Kemi Badenoch swipes on her iPad in what looks like someone’s smuggled a modern device into a period film. Trade Minister Kemi Badenoch is one of the younger politicians on the Tories’ frontbench. It’s Wednesday of this week, the Prime Minister’s Questions will start in a few minutes, and the chamber is slowly filling up. Then Rishi Sunak enters the hall.
