Year 2022 can be considered as the most challenging year ever in the UK and it will be remembered as a year of history-making events. From the passing of Queen Elizabeth II to the cost of living crisis, from the war in Ukraine to record temperatures, from migrants crisis to government scandals, it’s difficult to recall a rival for such a broad series of moments. Here’s just a list of some, in rough chronological order.

Let’s start with a bit of fun, or rather let’s have a Party…gate! 

The Partygate is a political scandal that involved the English politicians during the COVID-19 pandemic, between 2020 and 2021, but was reported in January 2022. In this period various parties and gatherings were held among the politicians while public health restrictions prohibited them. Among them, the protagonist of this scandal was the, back then, Prime minister of the UK Boris Johnson; whose actions caused him to resign his title of Prime minister. So in the end through all the parties we can say that he had a final bitter toast. 

The following government was not so lucky either. Liz Truss replaced Boris Johnson but she resigned 45 days later. In September and October 2022, the Conservative Party government led by Prime Minister, Liz Truss, faced a credibility crisis. It was caused by the September 2022 mini-budget, loss of support from Conservative members of parliament and a disorganised vote in the House of Commons. On 25th October, Rishi Sunak became Prime Minister of the United Kingdom after meeting with King Charles III at Buckingham Palace. The 42-year-old former treasury chief has been the country’s third premier in under two months, the youngest leader since 1812, and the first person of colour to serve in the role. He is of Indian heritage and Hindu faith. Let’s hope he won’t be resigning soon, no party for him!
