Workers sit back as Tories rip each other’s chucks off – the contest must end NOW

zombie fight

THE decision to hold an endless series of regional hunts to elect our new Prime Minister has proved extraordinarily imprudent.

While the questions and answers are often the same at every event, an unnecessary indulgence in the age of the internet and television, the cost of living crisis is reaching more terrifying proportions by the day.

All the protracted Tory leadership battle has done is encourage Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak to tear pieces out of each other while Labour’s Keir Starmer sits back and looks on.

The BBC and government foes have loved every second, knowing the competition is garnering soundbites that will come back to haunt the Tories in the months and years to come.

It will also be more difficult for the victor to unite the party, although given the stakes that could hardly be higher for the country, it is vital that they find a way.

In an ideal world, this zombie competition would end now, MPs would be called from their sun loungers, and Parliament would get back to work early.

Otherwise, we pray that Cabinet Secretary Kit Malthouse will rightly claim that the government has been put on a war footing so that the new Prime Minister can act quickly to save households from the economic avalanche.

Blasted flush

GLASS types half full may have looked at this summer’s flight chaos, financial tightening and hot temperatures and seen a perfect opportunity to re-acquaint themselves with Britain’s seaside resorts.

Lady Luck appears to be holidaying elsewhere, however, and millions of Brits who are staying are now being warned not to swim in the sea at 50 beaches because of the dumping of hundreds of thousands of gallons of raw sewage.

The failure of treatment plants to treat wastewater, which triggered the overflows, was blamed on heavy rains this week.

That rare downpour, of course, came after a record week-long heatwave that triggered droughts and caused half the country to turn into a dust bowl and be hit with hose bans.

So we’d like to ask Ofwat, the jaded regulator that sets scandalously low standards for companies not only on wastewater but also on water wastage:

What types of weather is our leaky, creaking water network prepared for?

Deadly Roads

“UNCLE Tom” O’Halloran was 87 and on a mobility scooter but still tried to help the less fortunate by busking his accordion to raise funds for Ukraine.

And yet his life was taken in broad daylight by a coward with a knife, perhaps in a failed robbery attempt.

The unprovoked attack on Mr O'Halloran was the sixth murder in London in just four days

Disturbingly, the unprovoked attack on Mr O’Halloran was the sixth murder on the streets of London in just four days.

In many ways, it’s the most pointless.
