UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak dispels rumors of resignation amidst criticism over his absence from D-Day commemoration events. Sunak, facing backlash for choosing a TV interview over attending the 80th anniversary event in northern France, issues an apology. Despite facing criticism from both veterans’ groups and his own party members, Sunak remains resolute, emphasizing his commitment to campaigning for the upcoming general election on July 4th.

While polls predict a challenging outcome for the Conservatives against the Labour party, Sunak remains undeterred, drawing attention to his past resilience in the face of adversity. He emphasizes his dedication to fighting for votes and the future of the country during campaign stops.

Sunak’s decision to call an early election, announced unexpectedly amidst Downing Street rain, caught his party off guard, necessitating a swift scramble for parliamentary candidates. Prior missteps, such as a poorly received campaign stop near the Titanic’s construction site, have invited unfavorable comparisons to leadership challenges.

Questions also arise regarding the accuracy of Sunak’s claims regarding Labour’s tax policies, adding to the scrutiny ahead of the Tories’ policy proposal release. Labour, meanwhile, promises no surprises in its forthcoming manifesto for working people, scheduled for Thursday.
