The Conservative Party is Britain’s right-wing voice of tradition: 97% of its membership is white, and they skew older, wealthy and male.
But the party’s next prime minister may well be the daughter of Nigerian immigrants who flipped burgers to put herself through college; it might be the son of an Indian pharmacist who immigrated here in the 1960s; or it could be the third woman that this supposedly old-fashioned party has elevated to the seat of power.
