Before the National Election in Britain, PM Rishi Sunak appealed to the voters, said- ‘Trust me’

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s confidence has weakened due to the defeat in local and by-elections before the start of national elections in Britain. Therefore, he has started communicating with the voters of the country even before the elections begin. British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on Monday urged voters to trust him to keep them safe in a dangerous world. He touted his achievements in a political campaign speech ahead of national elections due sometime this year.

With the ruling Conservatives trailing opposition Labor in the polls, Sunak tried to convince voters that they had confidence in him. During a speech at a Conservative think tank, Sunak said only he could defend the country against a “axis of authoritarian states”. He attacked Labour, saying that the opposition party could not match their pledge to increase defense spending or tackle illegal immigration and that only they had “a clear plan” for the future. However, Labor Party leader Keir Starmer rejected Sunak’s allegations.

“The next election our country is going to face is a general election and the choice in that general election is clear. It is an election of the future versus the past,” PM Rishi Sunak told the Policy Exchange think tank. “We have a clear understanding of what the future holds. We have known for a long time that this is a dangerous time in the world, but also a most transformative one…and in such circumstances I am the only one who has bold ideas And a clear plan that would provide a secure future for the country. Labor responded by accusing the Conservatives of overseeing “costly chaos”.

Labour’s national campaign co-ordinator Pat McFadden said: “The only way to stop the chaos, turn the page and start renewal is a change of government.

The Prime Minister’s team is frustrated by what they believe is a lack of appreciation in the government for what they have achieved so far. Sunak used his speech to discuss the policy he has implemented so far, including a pledge to increase defense spending to 2.5% of GDP by 2030.
