There’s a new occupant in No.10 Downing Street.
Also, the cabinet of new conservative UK prime minister Liz Truss has a quite lot of female faces.
PM Truss is the third Tory woman to become Britain’s top leader. Earlier women PMs – the late Margaret Thatcher and Theresa May – were/are Tories.
Truss has appointed another woman too, Therese Anne Coffey, as her deputy prime minister.
Liberals in Britain have never appointed a woman as PM or DPM, much less for both jobs together in a bundle — as is the present package with the UK Tory government.

Kwasi Kwarteng (pix above) is the newly minted Chancellor of the Exchequer aka Finance Minister. His parents arrived in the UK from Ghana.
In the previous Tory cabinet, then PM Boris Johnson picked Nadhim Zahawi (ethnic Kurd) and before him, Rishi Sunak (ethnic Indian) as his Finance Ministers.
Note: Nadhim Zawawi has been included in the Truss cabinet
Johnson’s conservative predecessor PM Theresa May had selected Sajid Javid (ethnic Indian) as her Finance Minister.
Liberals in Britain have never appointed a non white as Finance Minister. Nor were the British liberal cabinets ever this ethnically diverse either.

The Truss cabinet has as Home Secretary, pictured above, Suella Braverman (ethnic Indian). FYI: ‘Braverman’ is her married name.
Former PM Johnson’s Home Secretary was Priti Patel, also an ethnic Indian.
James Cleverly (pictured above, left) – whose mother immigrated from African country Sierra Leone – is the new British Foreign Minister.
The Truss cabinet also includes Kemi Badenoch, Alok Sharma and Ranil Jayawardena.
Yet when liberal propaganda portrays conservatives as white supremacists, misogynists and racists, the Sam Harrises of the world swallow such misinformation hook, line and sinker.
Meanwhile in Malaysia, the group most easily taken in by propaganda is DAP supporters.
Dapsters incapable of processing real data
In our country, many pro-opposition Malaysians reflexively believe that the Harapan government was more multiracial than previous BN governments.
This belief is factually wrong.
BN had more non-Malay, non-Muslim MPs than Harapan, actually — see full name list comparison HERE • [‘Where do Nons get their (mistaken) idea Harapan was most ’multiracial’ govt ever?’]
The Badawi cabinet also had more Chinese ministers and deputies than the Mahathir-Harapan cabinet — compare full name lists and their designations HERE • [‘More Chinese cabinet ministers under BN than during Harapan interregnum’]
After Mahathir was temporarily sidelined in 2004, BN chairman Abdullah Ahmad Badawi led the long-ruling coalition to its most multiracial elected representation.
This is because Mahathir was, and still remains, a highly toxic racial element.

Yet Chinese voters were prepared to anoint Mahathir as their PM 2.0 and are currently pinning great hopes on Mahathir protege Syed Saddiq.
And Cina DAP, who claim to be strongly anti corruption, are the staunchest defenders of Saddiq who is in court for corruption charges.
