I got into politics because I wanted to give back to our country, which has given me so many opportunities. I'm proud to be able to share my story with you. Check out my campaign video and join me at https://t.co/idVRwMVc79 pic.twitter.com/L7cypOHNmA

- An unconventional Tory – he has proudly described his roots as the son of a bus driver from Romford
- Not prone to gaffes – a safe pair of hands
- Proudly campaigns as a man from a Pakistani Muslim household (despite not being religious himself) and is a keen ally of the Jewish community
- Another candidate who doesn’t set the world on fire – not a brilliant orator
- Former Remainer
- No huge wins to his name yet – is not a big-hitter
Sajid David is a competent politician, but doesn’t seem to be too much of an actual leader, let alone one who could bring the country together at its most divided time in a generation.
He seems to be a good man, but unfortunately that doesn’t quite cut it these days.
Possible one to watch for the future.
