Sunak's D-Day Snub Draws Criticism from Tory Ranks

Rishi Sunak's decision to skip the international ceremony commemorating the 80th anniversary of D-Day has sparked criticism within his own party. Several high-ranking Tory officials have expressed their disappointment and surprise at the Prime Minister's choice to prioritize an ITV interview over attending the event alongside world leaders like Joe Biden and Emmanuel Macron.

Transport Secretary Mark Harper was among the first to voice his disapproval, calling the decision a "mistake" and offering an apology. House of Commons leader Penny Mordaunt, a Navy reservist, echoed this sentiment, labeling Sunak's absence as "completely wrong."

The criticism continued with policing minister Chris Philp, who admitted to feeling "surprised and disappointed" by the Prime Minister's actions. However, Philp also defended Sunak's track record of supporting veterans and funding the armed forces.

The D-Day snub has become a major talking point in the ongoing general election campaign, with Tory candidates expressing concern that it gives Labour a free pass. The incident has also led to speculation about potential resignations within the Conservative Party, with work and pensions secretary Mel Stride being forced to deny plans to quit before the July 4th election.

Sunak has apologized for leaving the D-Day commemorations early, but his decision has undoubtedly caused damage within his own party and fueled criticism from the opposition. The Prime Minister is expected to address the issue further in a short broadcast interview on Monday morning and a BBC Panorama interview with Nick Robinson later in the evening.
