Huge challenge for any new PM

NOT even Margaret Thatcher faced problems as big or as fundamental as our next Prime Minister.

Credit to Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak for volunteering to tackle them.

But we wonder if even they really understand how bad things have gotten – when nothing seems to be working and even our basic needs are threatened.

Food prices have skyrocketed. Even its supply is facing a potentially ‘apocalyptic’ shock, Bank of England chief says.

Water is low, droughts are looming, and our failing monopolies waste millions of gallons a day while rewarding their bosses with colossal salaries.

Energy costs will double. Millions will not be able to pay.

This winter, power outages and the poorest in homes they can’t heat could be shivering.

And oil companies just shrug their shoulders as they wallow in ruthless profits.

The NHS is on its knees despite its £170billion budget.

Waiting lists are years long. Visiting a family doctor is practically impossible.

Even asking for it is considered a breathtaking impertinence.

Crime increases. The police have given up. They are happier signaling virtue on social media and chasing down Twitter trolls.

When you’re young, forget about home ownership, especially in the South.

Years of cheap money, under-construction, and a rapidly expanding population driven largely by immigration have pushed prices out of reach.

The government is too intimidated by NIMBY voters to build where we need it.

As inflation soars, unions are happily adding fuel to the fire and striking for wage increases Britain cannot afford.

Most of this is not the fault of this government.

The next PM must show ambition to tackle the growing problems

The main causes, apart from rains, are the war of Covid and Putin.

But our new PM MUST have the ambition to address all of these issues over the long term.

We need more nuclear power plants in this decade. We have to frack, regardless of local resistance.

We have to build: new reservoirs, new houses, new hospitals.

Our public services are in dire need of reform: A streamlined NHS with more frontline workers and fewer clipboard sellers.

Unawakened police forces focused solely on crime. A public service that delivers what voters want and doesn’t thwart it.

We need a government strong enough to ignore social media hate fire.

It’s a mountainous challenge. And that’s before we consider climate change and Ukraine.

We’re just grateful it’s still going to the Tories and not Labour.

The bland fence sitter Sir Keir Starmer would have no idea where to start.

Yell at her

HERE’S cause for celebration: England’s lionesses.

What a boost their football exploits have given the nation despite our ailments.

And tomorrow, at Wembley, history awaits.

Come on England!
