Sajid Javid
Sajid Javid

The son of an immigrant bus driver Sajid Javid has come a long way on his journey to become the first non-white UK Home Secretary. A former banker at Deutsche Bank, he became MP in 2010 and since then has served in various Cabinet posts including Cultural Secretary, Business Secretary and Communities Secretary. Javid’s ties to American neo-conservatives has not affected his strong support amongst Tory grassroots and the possibility that he may become leader of the party, and indeed the country.
