Dive In


Grateful that my colleagues have put their trust in me today. I will work night and day to deliver our message around the country.

That’s what Rishi Sunak said after he won the latest round of voting to pick the next prime minister of the UK. He now faces a final faceoff with Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, who knocked Penny Mordaunt out of the race. While Sunak secured more votes than Truss in this round, the outcome is very much up in the air. In a recent survey, she beat him 54% to 35% in direct contest.


Stuff to check out: On the latest episode of the splainer podcast ‘Press Decode,’ the team discusses the great bra ban and other bizarre exam rules—and racism in wildlife conservation. Be sure to head over to the IVM website, Spotify or Apple Podcasts to listen to it.
