Time to wake up & appeal to young
HOW refreshing to hear big ideas from Tory leadership hopefuls after years of political stagnation under Theresa May.
Boris Johnson, Dominic Raab and Matt Hancock are staking big claims with pledges to shake up tax, launch big infrastructure projects and tackle rising crime.
Hancock is right to warn that the Tories must wake up and appeal to disaffected younger voters who want to see a proper vision for their future.
The country has been crying out for fresh ideas, but ultimately Brexit will define this leadership election, just as it has dominated our politics for the past three years.
The Tory grassroots want a clear, decisive message from able candidates on the biggest issue facing Britain.
Yet at the moment it looks like a cavalry charge of up to FIFTEEN runners, bulked out with no-hopers and some of the biggest wannabes since the Spice Girls.
Already the Tory Remainer ranks are plotting a Stop Boris campaign and among potential candidates six back No Deal, four reject it and three are in-between.
It is another sign of the size of this Tory crisis that such an absurdly large field of candidates is tolerated.
You would think a party grandee like Sir Graham Brady would be just the sort of old hand to help sort out this mess.
But he seems ready to add to it by throwing his own large-size hat into the ring.
The Tories have no divine right to government and they need to get a grip fast.
This contest is too important for petty ambitions and if they cock this up the voters will never forgive them.
Hope for hero Harry
BRAVE Harry Banks’s fight against cancer has touched hearts everywhere.
So much so that Sun on Sunday readers helped towards the staggering £800,000 raised so that the 10-year-old could get pioneering treatment abroad.
Thanks to your generosity, the sports-mad boy and his family fly out to Spain today to try out ground-breaking new drugs that could save his life.
Harry’s courage and spirit have been an inspiration. We wish him well.
THERE have been tears, a very public snub, back-room rivalries and lashings of last-minute drama.
