The fourth most powerful person in the UK?

Obscure website, Powerful Media’s UK black powerlist for people of African or African Caribbean heritage raised a few eyebrows when released last autumn with the Reverend Rees in fourth place.

Neither Foreign Secretary James Cleverly, now Home Secretary, nor Tory leadership hopeful, Kemi Badenoch, Trade Secretary, appeared on the list despite, on the face of it, being quite powerful.

This has led some commentators to brand the whole fiasco “lefty woke nonsense”. Powerful Media responded by explaining they had inexplicably banned parliamentarians from being listed.

But not mayors too weak to get selected for a seat to become a parliamentarian?
