Labour tipped to win as UK elects new Prime Minister

Written by on July 4, 2024

Britain’s political leaders made a final frantic push for votes yesterday on the last day of an election campaign expected to return a Labour government after 14 years of Conservative rule.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak insisted he was still fighting hard despite one of his closest allies conceding that the Tories were heading for an extraordinary landslide defeat today.

The Conservatives suffered a further blow at the 11th hour when The Sun tabloid, famous for backing election winners, endorsed Keir Starmer’s Labour.

Polls overwhelmingly predict that Labour will win its first general election since 2005, making Starmer the party’s first prime minister since Gordon Brown left office in 2010.
