Brits 'at risk' in a 'more dangerous world' with Labour government, claims Rishi Sunak

Rishi Sunak has said voters will be “at risk” and in a “more dangerous world” with a Labour government because “our enemies notice” if the UK “doesn’t have a plan”.

The Tories have sought to draw a dividing line with Sir Keir Starmer’s party over security after pledging to raise defence spending to 2.5 per cent by 2030.

With the General Election campaign beginning to heat up, the Prime Minister took aim at his political rivals with a lengthy thread on X, formerly Twitter, on Saturday night.

He wrote: “We all know that Labour doesn’t have a plan. But what does that actually mean if they got into power?

“Uncertainty… But what is the cost of this uncertainty?

“An uncertain future has consequences. Our enemies notice.

"The world becomes more dangerous as they take advantage of our weakness.”

He added: “The consequences of uncertainty are clear. No plan means a more dangerous world. You, your family and our country are all at risk if Labour win.”
