Britain faces its ‘most dangerous' years in history, PM Rishi Sunak to warn in pre-election bid

·1 min

U.K. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will declare on Monday that Britain is at a ‘crossroads’ as he seeks to regain support for his ruling Conservative Party ahead of the upcoming general election. In a speech, Sunak will say that the years ahead will be among the most challenging in Britain’s history and that he is the best person to navigate them. Sunak’s political future hangs in the balance following a dismal showing for the Conservatives in local elections earlier this month, as well as defections by Tory MPs to the opposition Labour Party. Current opinion polls put Labour ahead of the Tories.
