Sunak warns of ‘dangerous, transformational’ years in London speech

Rishi Sunak will make a pre-election pitch to voters later this morning, where he is expected to warn that the UK “stands at a crossroads” ahead of “some of the most dangerous years”.

The prime minister is seeking to portray himself as the best person to deal with the challenges after the general election, which is expected to be called before the end of the year.

He will say he has “bold ideas” that can “create a more secure future” for Britons and restore their “confidence and pride in our country”.
