A cracking Evening Standard front page

Quite the front page from the Evening Standard today:

Evening Standard front page, 27 June 2024

We are tearing down a wall by riding a wave on a surfboard while paddling through the air. I hope that is all clear.

(There’s probably a bar chart somewhere in tow too.)

As the story says:

In an exclusive interview with The Standard, the Liberal Democrat leader told how he was aiming for a “game, set and match” triple win in south-west London as his party targets Wimbledon, Sutton and Cheam, and Carshalton and Wallington.

He also hinted that he believes the Lib Dems could pull off some surprises on election night in the London area…

He is quick to throw in the two words, Liz Truss, which polling expert Sir John Curtice says sow doubts in voters’ minds about whether or not they should trust the Tories on the economy.

Another story in the Evening Standard adds:

Election joker Sir Ed Davey may be having the last laugh as his personal ratings have jumped, according to a new poll.

The Ipsos survey for The Evening Standard showed … Sir Ed who has done a series of election stunts including going down a waterslide, falling off a paddleboard and being interviewed on the tea cup ride at Thorpe Park just outside London, has a net satisfaction score of -5, compared to -18 earlier in the campaign.

While this may not seem much to shout about, it is much less negative than the scores for Rishi Sunak and Sir Keir Starmer.

  1. If Prime Ministers were elected on popularity only then our beloved leader Sir Ed Davy would already be this country’s Prime Minister
