NEWS STORY : Chris Philp Criticises Sunak Over D-Day Decision


Chris Philp, the Policing Minister, has criticised the conduct of Rishi Sunak, the Prime Minister, saying that he was “surprised and disappointed” by his decision to leave the D-Day commemorations early. He added that the Prime Minister should though be credited with his apology the following morning and added that he felt he had “a good track record with the services”. Philp also said:

“I’m sure he regrets deeply not having attended that event, which is why obviously he rightly apologised. It was a mistake, but he’s recognised that. He’s apologised, and I think we’ll see him bouncing around the campaign trail this week. And I’m sure he’ll be talking to journalists.”
