Despite his apology, Sunak had one thing to ask of the British public as they make their decision on who should be the next Prime Minister of this country.

The Prime Minister told the voters “I think it’s important, though, given the enormity of the sacrifice made, that we don’t politicise this.”

What makes it more worrying for Sunak is that Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, who is the poll’s favourite to take the premiership, also attended the event.

The event started in Normandy, which Sunak and Sir Starmer both attended, before continuing to Omaha Beach, although Sunak decided to head home before this.

This decision will be judged by the public and will only dampen Sunak’s hopes of fending off Labour’s dominance, despite him going home to continue campaigning.
