Pros:

  • 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

Cons:

  • 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

Analysis:

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.
