Fix price crisis or lose next election
BORIS Johnson’s government has been mired in Partygate paralysis for nearly six months.
So this week is finally the chance to move on following the release of Sue Gray’s account of wine and cake jollies at Downing Street during lockdown.
That inquiry, while necessary, was a massive distraction, as was the Met’s own £500,000 inquiry.
More blood could be spilled on the No. 10 carpet before the saga concludes, although barring a bombshell, it’s unlikely to set off a major leadership challenge for the Prime Minister
Durham Police are still rightly grilling the two-faced Sir Keir Starmer over his own illicit beer and curry knee-high.
But the prime minister must resolutely move beyond Partygate and tackle the worst cost-of-living crisis in a generation.
With skyrocketing inflation making food and energy bills unaffordable, voters are more worried about where the next pound will come from than who’s pouring the drinks in 10th place.
Boris Johnson needs to focus on cutting taxes and controlling rising prices.
Otherwise voters will never trust him again.
Derail your own future
MILITANT rail unions risk cutting their own throats if they ruin summer with strikes.
The entire industry has been a financial black hole for years.
Taxpayers wasted billions of pounds keeping empty trains running during the pandemic.
Billions more are now being spent on largely abandoned train cars as people work from home.
The government urgently needs to stem these huge losses, and strikes will only exacerbate them.
And the public picking up that bill will be rightly outraged when union barons disrupt England internationals and Wimbledon.
As Transport Secretary Grant Shapps warns, the industry is already on “life support”.
This pointless disruption could prove economically fatal.
Your left-handed money
WHEN Priti Patel announced her Rwanda plan for migrants, we all knew there would be massive opposition.
But today we reveal organizations determined to block the plan have happily pocketed £7.7million in public money over the past four years.
So when we see leftie lawyers dragging migrants off planes, don’t forget that.
We’re the guys they pay for it.
