Sunak pledges to continue until the end of the campaign amid rumours he could throw the towel in

The Prime Minister is attempting to draw a line following the roaring criticism that he left the D-Day commemorations early and have vowed he will continue “until the last day of his campaign.”

Rishi Sunak has faced fierce criticism from the Labour leader and MPs within the Tory Party over his early departure from Normandy which has dogged him over the weekend.

The Prime Minister has tried to dodge questions and has kept his head down over the weekend, PA news agency reported.

Sunak insisted that he will not stop “fighting for the future” the UK after he was asked about rumours he could quit.

PA news agency reported that the Prime Minister told reporters, “People are gonna say what they’re gonna say.

“I am very confident in the actions that we’re putting forward for the British people.

“I’m confident they will deliver a more secure future for people. There are lots of people who want to write me off, write this off, say this campaign or the election is a foregone conclusion.

“They’ve been saying that, by the way, ever since I’ve got this job, right? Not since this election campaign.”

Sunak added, “The reality is I’m not going to stop going, I’m not going to stop fighting for people’s votes, I’m not going to stop fighting for the future of our country.”

He told reporters that he “absolutely didn’t mean to cause anyone any hurt or upset” by leaving Normandy earlier than expected.

Sunak said, “I just hope people can find it in their hearts to forgive me and look at my actions that I have taken as Prime Minister both to support our armed forces with an increase in defence spending but also have a minister focussed on veterans affairs around the Cabinet table, making sure this is the best country in the world to be a veteran.”

Chris Philp, a Home Office policing minister said he was “surprised and disappointed” over Sunak’s decision to leave the 80th D-Day commemorations.
