“Sunak’s crisis cabinet”: what the newspapers are saying after the Prime Minister’s reshuffle | Newspapers


Rishi Sunak’s sudden return to the pinnacle of British politics and the unveiling of his new cabinet dominate the front pages of the UK on Wednesday.

The Guardian headlines “The PM’s reshuffle bet on day one in charge” and leads with an image of Rishi Sunak meeting King Charles at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.

The newspaper writes that Sunak “was committed to bringing ‘integrity and accountability,'” but “played by reinstating Suella Braverman to the Home Office less than a week after she was sacked for a violation of the security”.

Under the headline “I will correct the mistakes, Sunak swears as he brings in the continuity cabinet”, The Time notes that “a third of the ministers” have retained their posts.

The I calls it “Sunak’s Crisis Cabinet”. He says the Prime Minister has stacked his front benches with ‘political rivals’ in an ‘attempt to unify warring Tories’.

But the newspaper quotes a conservative source as saying “all the guys are in the best jobs” and “the sniping won’t stop”.

The Mail splashes with “Leave it to me, Your Majesty!” and a full-page photo of the new prime minister and monarch.

The newspaper’s political editor writes that “Sunak chose a unity cabinet last night as he pledged to ‘fix the mistakes’ made by Liz Truss.”

The Telegraph quotes the Prime Minister on his front page saying, “Mistakes were made. I will fix them”. He says Sunak warned that “‘tough decisions’ were needed as he partly blamed the economic mess on his predecessor.”

The FinancialTimes says “Sunak is facing a ‘deep crisis'”. He notes that Jeremy Hunt was “retained as Chancellor with a focus on stability and confidence” and that there were early signs that Sunak’s election had “calmed the turmoil in the markets”.

The Mirror highlights the scale of the crisis facing the Prime Minister, with the title ‘Meanwhile…in the real world’.

He writes that “As millionaire Rishi Sunak starts working as prime minister, people are desperate about the cost of living. Some basic food products have increased by almost two-thirds in one year.

The Sun says “PM brings back some familiar faces” and “At least I got rid of the other Mogg, Larry” over a photo of Sunak and Downing Street’s resident cat, Larry.

The newspaper notes that “the new Prime Minister has sacked 11 members of his predecessor’s top team, including Jacob Rees-Mogg”.

Finally, the Daily recording Sunak marks a “wee feartie”, a Scottish word for coward. The newspaper writes that “opponents accuse the new Prime Minister of being afraid of the general elections”.
