Rishi Sunak slashes Labour lead with massive bounce back in just a week – with his three priorities as PM revealed


RISHI Sunak has today slashed Labour poll lead in a massive bounce back after just one week in the top job.

Labour is now leading by 16 points, an 11 point drop from last week’s 27-point lead, the latest Opinium poll has revealed.

And Mr Sunak’s top three priorities have been revealed ahead of his first full week as PM.

He is understood to wants the Government to focus on crime, the NHS and restoring “economic stability”, the Sunday Telegraph reports.

Research carried out by pollsters Opinium found Tory support has soared by five percent to 28 between Wednesday and Friday.

And Labour is now down six points to 44 per cent.

When it came to the economy, a total of 33 per cent of Brits said they would prefer “a Conservative government led by Rishi Sunak” than a Labour one lead by Keir Starmer, the Daily Mail’s poll found.

It marks a massive shift in Tory support after Liz Truss dramatically quit as PM last Thursday following just 44 days in office.

Her resignation sparked a Tory leadership race, which saw Sunak come out on top.

It comes as the PM’s top three priorities are revealed.

The PM is committed to restoring “economic stability” following Liz Truss’ short tenure.

In his first speech as Prime Minister, Mr Sunak vowed: “I will place economic stability and confidence at the heart of this government’s agenda.

“This will mean difficult decisions to come. But you saw me during Covid, doing everything I could, to protect people and businesses, with schemes like furlough.

“There are always limits, more so now than ever, but I promise you this: I will bring that same compassion to the challenges we face today.”

He also used his speech to promise to build a “stronger NHS” after the coronavirus pandemic, the second point on Mr Sunak’s agenda.

And his third priority is said to be policing.

A source has claimed the new PM wants to stamp out “woke” policing with plans to get more cops on the frontline.
