As Rishi Sunak delivered his final speech outside 10 Downing Street, following a significant defeat to the Labour Party in the UK elections, his wife Akshata Murty stood resolutely by his side. While the discussions primarily revolved around the election results and the future direction of the Conservative Party, social media was abuzz with reactions to the way she stood behind him, drawing eerie comparisons.

Akshata’s choice of attire—a bold red, white, and blue chevron gown known as the £395 Lina Dress by designer Omi Na Na—caught considerable attention and playful ridicule. Many viewers couldn’t help but liken the scene to a moment from a horror film.

“Is it just me or this picture looks like a Korean horror film to you as well,” commented one user, capturing the eerie atmosphere. Another described it as “The ghost of 10 Downing Street,” while a third humorously suggested, “Black mirror episode,” and a fourth added, “Dress = Conjuring part 4. No wonder he lost.”

Amidst the online banter, her dress, with its patriotic color scheme and price tag, became a focal point. Some speculated whether Akshata’s sartorial choice—incorporating the colors of the UK flag—was a strategic move to subtly influence the nation’s evolving political narrative.

“Akshata Murty’s dress is absolutely perfect for the occasion. The multi-layered symbolism is *chef’s kiss*,” remarked one user on platform X, while another joked, “Akshata Murty’s dress is also a QR code that gets you a Disneyland fast pass.” Another wryly noted, “Akshata desperately trying to draw the attention away from her husband in her awful dress.”

Meanwhile, following his significant defeat in the UK elections, Rishi Sunak addressed the nation from the steps of 10 Downing Street, offering a heartfelt apology and acknowledging the public’s demand for change.

“To the country I would like to say first and foremost, I am sorry. I have given this job my all, but you have sent a clear signal that the government of the United Kingdom must change. And yours is the only judgement that matters.”

Accepting responsibility for the Conservative Party’s historic loss, Sunak announced his resignation as both prime minister and leader of the Conservatives once succession arrangements were finalized. The party, facing its lowest electoral tally ever with just over 121 seats, is now at a pivotal point of reckoning and transition in British politics.
