TONIGHT Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt face off for the final time, at The Sun’s leadership debate.
They know the Tories have no chance of winning back their majority if they can’t secure the support of Sun readers. And both men should realise they still have lots of questions to answer.
Boris has promised he will take Britain out of the EU on October 31, come what may. Good — but how exactly does he propose to deliver in the face of a Parliament stuffed with Remainers? If his answer is a General Election, then how will he persuade fed-up voters to abandon the Brexit Party?
And what are his tax plans? Will he prioritise cuts for the rich, or start by easing the pressure on the lowest paid?
Jeremy Hunt’s problem is different — he has set out detailed policy plans, but has failed to convince Brexiteers he really is on their side.
After an increasingly aggressive campaign against Mr Johnson, how can he hope to bring the party back together in the unlikely event he makes it to No10?
There is so much at stake. As a new report shows, millions of working-class voters are up for grabs at the next election, and it’s vital the Tories don’t lose them to Labour’s hard-left cult.
Boris and Jeremy, this is your last chance to make your case to the nation. Don’t waste it.
WHAT an unbelievable day of sport!
England won the Cricket World Cup for the first time ever, with a finish that could not have been more exciting.
And at the same time, two of the greatest tennis players in history thrashed out a stunning five-hour duel with more twists than a series of Game of Thrones.
To put the cherry on the cake, Lewis Hamilton triumphed at Silverstone.
For a few glorious hours, the country was again transfixed by cricket. Let’s hope it inspires a new generation to pick up bat and ball this summer.
And there’s further brilliant sport to look forward to in the coming weeks – bring on the Open, the Ashes and more!
