Rishi Sunak is the 5th UK prime minister in just six years. He is, in fact, the third leader to enter London’s 10 Downing Street in less than two months.

It wasn’t always like this. Before this, the country saw three PMs within a year only twice, the last being in 1834. Before Gordon Brown of the Labour Party became the prime minister in 2007, the UK had only three prime ministers in about three decades.
