UK's Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is set to make headlines as he unveils his staunch views on modern cultural debates. In a forthcoming address to grassroots Conservatives in Sussex, Sunak is anticipated to broach controversial topics such as gender terminology and the broader implications of the "woke" movement.

Defending Traditional Terminology

Sunak, a leading figure in the Conservative party and former chancellor, has explicitly voiced his commitment to safeguarding the terms “women” and “mother”. Citing the Equality Act as a proponent of "woke nonsense", Sunak contends that there is a growing threat to long-established cultural norms and values.

He is quoted as saying, “What’s the point in stopping the bulldozers in the green belt if we allow Left-wing agitators to take a bulldozer to our history, our traditions and our fundamental values? Whether it’s pulling down statues of historic figures, replacing the school curriculum with anti-British propaganda, or rewriting the English language so we can’t even use words like 'man', 'woman' or 'mother' without being told we’re offending someone”.

Championing Parental Oversight

Sunak’s speech doesn't stop at gender terminology. He also touches on the broader issue of education and parental rights. “It shouldn't be controversial for parents to know what their children are being taught in school about relationships,” he is expected to emphasize, thereby arguing for greater transparency in the educational sphere.

The Prime Minister further highlights the importance of grounded beliefs. He states, “We shouldn't get bullied into believing that people can be any gender they want to be. They can't. A man is a man and a woman is a woman.

That's just common sense”. Such remarks hint at Sunak's broader endeavor to establish a clear stance amidst an evolving cultural landscape, especially when it comes to the rights and responsibilities of parents, educators, and institutions.
