Is this the strongest case yet that we need an autistic and neurodiverse Prime Minster?
Downing Street has become the address with the most Covid breaches in Britain after Scotland Yard issued another batch of "partygate" fines, taking the total to more than 100!

Also, rules and adhering to them and not breaking them can be very important for some autistic people. Is this the strongest case yet that we need an autistic Prime Minster?

I'm uncertain that any autistic (and/or sane) person should/would want the job.
It's a very public and 'social' role, where every decision will be scrutinised, challenged or mocked by other politicians (of all political parties), the media and the general public.
And while there isn't really a decent alternative, the current system seems to encourage politicians to focus on 'whatever gets people to vote for me (again)' rather than 'solving the problems'.
It's further complicated by the fact that most of the 'best options' for dealing with problems typically have some combination of 'cost more money than is available', 'will upset the rich and powerful', 'will lose votes and make me unpopular', or 'will take many years to show any results and/or make things worse in the short/medium term'. And that's just for the problems that *have* known solutions.
If it was to be Elon Musk for eg… I’d be going off grid 🙈😂
