British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is facing a horrifying reality in the new year, the Daily Mail writes on January 1.
During his New Year’s address, the Prime Minister said that he will do his best to cope with the current crisis in which the United Kingdom finds itself.
“These are all the challenges of the last twelve years in one bottle. This is a difficult time for our country and our party, and we have less than two years to change the situation. Not every measure we take will be popular. But I can promise that all of them will be made with one goal: to build a country that our children and grandchildren will be proud of,” he said.
Nevertheless, as the tabloid notes, the British prime minister faced a number of difficult problems.
The first question that faced Sunak was the statement of the country’s chief ambulance doctor, who said that due to failures in departments, up to 500 people die every week.
The second shock was the information about the level of migration problems in the UK. It turned out that during the past year, 45,756 migrants illegally entered the United Kingdom across the English Channel, despite all the efforts of the Cabinet of Ministers to prevent illegal migration.
The third major problem that the leader of the British government has to solve is the UK trade union strikes. It is noted that in the near future because of this, railways may again rise. In addition, further strikes by nurses and ambulance personnel are possible ahead.
“This is in addition to a number of other ongoing issues such as skyrocketing inflation and the cost of living crisis,” the tabloid noted.
Earlier, on January 1, Bloomberg, citing government statistics, reported that more than 45,000 migrants illegally entered the UK through the English Channel in a year. It is noted that the last crossings took place on Christmas Day, when 90 people made the journey from France in two boats.
Prior to that, on December 14, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak promised to reduce overall immigration for the next election, but insisted his priority was tackling the small boat crisis that has seen some 45,000 migrants illegally this year. arrived in the UK. The British Prime Minister also made it clear that he intends to reduce the number of foreign students in the country.
