Great Britain

Let’s put aside party politics and join together to pray for Boris Johnson

BRITAIN has been badly shaken by the coronavirus pandemic.

That the life of our recently elected Prime Minister should be in such peril has come as a body blow.

But Boris Johnson has overcome the odds before and can do so again.

In 2008 he surprised many to become Mayor of London, a Labour city. In 2016 he beat the odds again to lead the Leave campaign to an astonishing and unforeseen referendum victory.

And just four months ago, he smashed them to pieces to win a whopping great mandate in the General Election.

With the help of our terrific NHS, we trust that he will beat this too.

Right now, though, he is facing the fight of his life. And he and his pregnant fiancée need the support of the country they love.

So today, let’s put aside party politics. Let’s ignore the vile tweets. And let’s take a moment out of our days to pray for Boris Johnson: father, father to be, and powerhouse Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

Get well soon, sir. The nation needs you.

Give now to The Sun's NHS appeal

BRITAIN’s four million NHS staff are on the frontline in the battle against coronavirus.

But while they are helping save lives, who is there to help them?

The Sun has launched an appeal to raise £1MILLION for NHS workers.

The Who Cares Wins Appeal aims to get vital support to staff in their hour of need.

We have teamed up with NHS Charities Together in their urgent Covid-19 Appeal to ensure the money gets to exactly who needs it.

The Sun is donating £50,000 and we would like YOU to help us raise a million pounds, to help THEM.

No matter how little you can spare, please donate today here

Child support

WE welcome the news that families eligible for free school meals will be given vouchers to buy food over the Easter holidays.

For the children of wealthy parents living in large houses with gardens, lockdown might feel like a holiday.

But to the country’s poorest kids — stuck in crowded tower blocks with little or no access to green space — it is a terrifying, baffling and undeserved prison sentence.

Painting rainbows, watching Netflix cartoons and dabbling in a bit of home schooling is all very well. And we have no doubt that overworked and undersleeping parents are doing their best to comfort and reassure.

But these children will be sorely missing their friends, their playtimes, and all the little things which make life worth living. And because they’re at an impressionable age, their mental health could well be suffering.

Each and every one of them must be given all the support this country can offer.

Drivers in peril

BRITS are fast learning who keeps the nation on its feet.

And bus drivers, who ferry around NHS staff, are up at the top of the list.

But they are paying too high a price for their service. Nine have now died from coronavirus, leaving behind nine grieving families.

If more deaths are to be avoided, bus companies must pull their socks up NOW. Giving drivers proper protection isn’t hard. And there’s no excuse to force them into unpaid holiday when the Government has made it simple to furlough staff.

Our brave drivers deserve better.

Brits around the country clap for Boris Johnson as remains in intensive care battling coronavirus
