PM can exploit Starmer’s failings
HE MAY weigh little more than 11 stone wringing wet, but Rishi Sunak’s best chance of staying in No10 is to come out fighting.
Rishi Sunak remains the Tories’ only real chance of defeating Labour[/caption]
One of Sunak’s notable successes in office is the passing of the Illegal Migration Bill[/caption]
That is why party chiefs are right to see it as a gloves-off contest with Keir Starmer.
Rishi HAS achieved notable successes in office.
They include last week’s passing of the Illegal Migration Bill — a key weapon to prevent criminals exploiting desperate immigrants risking a Channel crossing.
Compare this with Sir Keir’s record.
Just weeks before taking over as Labour leader in 2020, he backed a campaign calling for 50 foreign crooks NOT to be deported to Jamaica.
Some of these dangerous offenders then carried out further crimes here, including a thug who battered an emergency worker.
Labour strategists are right to fret.
The unexpected Tory victory in Uxbridge proved once again that where there is a compelling financial issue at stake, voters will baulk at voting Labour.
Sir Keir admits the capital’s ULEZ emission zone — which unfairly penalises motorists — is a problem for his party.
This could prove a serious liability as it is rolled out in other parts of the UK.
The millions who own non-ULEZ compliant older vehicles may decide the election.
And they now have proof that Sir Keir could cost them dear.

And you won’t build up a penny in student debt.
Held to account
REFORM UK leader Richard Tice suspects his party’s bank account was shut down for the same unjustifiable political reasons as that of Nigel Farage.
If true, the Treasury letter warning banks to respect their customers’ legitimate views comes not a moment too soon.
Who would have thought that this would need spelling out in Britain, one of the world’s great bastions of free speech?
Shamefully, in 2023, it is all too necessary.
