Britain is “standing at a crossroads” ahead of “some of the most dangerous years”, Rishi Singh will say in a pre-election campaign for voters on Monday.

In a speech, the Prime Minister will argue that his “bold ideas” can “create a safer future” for Britons.

Labor said the Tories could not solve Britain's problems because “they are the problem”.

Mr Sink's speech in London will focus on security and the wider challenges facing Britain, as he says voters face a tough choice about who will lead the country.

He will say: “I feel a deep sense of urgency because there will be more change in the next five years than in the last 30 years.

“I believe the next few years will be the most dangerous but most transformative our country has ever seen.”

The prime minister is also expected to talk about foreign policy, describing China, Russia, North Korea and Iran as an axis of authoritarian states that threaten the UK. Global Immigration and Artificial Intelligence.

National polling puts Labor 20 points ahead of the Conservatives in general election voting intentions.

The prime minister is trying to present himself as the best person to deal with the challenges after the general election – expected before the end of the year.

He will say he has “bold ideas” that can “create a more secure future” for Britons and restore their “confidence and pride in our country”.

“I feel a deep sense of urgency because there will be more change in the next five years than in the last 30 years,” he said.

Mr Sink will pledge to defend the UK against the dangers of war, a global rise in immigration and “those who seek to undermine our shared values ​​and identity”.

And he will commit to taking advantage of the opportunities presented by technologies such as artificial intelligence.

He will say: “In the next few years, almost every aspect of our lives is going to change, from our democracy to our economy, to our society – to the most difficult questions of war and peace.

“How we act to face these changes – not only to keep people safe and secure but also to realize the opportunities – will determine whether the UK succeeds in the years ahead.

“And that's the choice before the country.”

Downing Street has argued that Mr Sink has a track record of delivering bold solutions during pandemics, from furloughs to the Rwanda scheme – first launched by Boris Johnson's administration.

The prime minister has tried to convince voters that Britain's economic prospects are improving in a bid to reverse the Tories' electoral fortunes.

Meanwhile, Sir Keir Starmer will later meet with Labor mayors – and portray the election as being between “a changing Labor Party… or further chaos and decline under the Tories”.

If Labor wins power, they will hold a round table with mayors about improving regional development.

Sir Keir is expected to tell them: “There is no doubt that this is the key choice at the next election: a changed Labor Party that raises living standards for everyone, everywhere or more chaos. And will fall under the Tories who will never be able to.

“Last week we saw the public turning to Labor as the first step to achieving what Britain needs. And voting Labor is the key to ending the chaos, turning the page and starting to renew all our communities. It's the only way to do it.”

Foreign Secretary Lord David Cameron argued on Sunday that it would be “absolutely right” to hold a general election in the second half of the year to give voters time to see “the economic plan is working”.

Last week's official data showed the economy expanded 0.6 percent during the first quarter, ending the technical recession recorded in the last half of last year.

But Mr Sink has faced repeated setbacks – including the results of the recent local elections. Their troubles deepened with the defection of Natalie Elphick – the second MP to quit the Tories for Labor in as many weeks – against her record of blocking housing and small boat Channel crossings.
