Theresa May must now show she's got the chops to lead global Britain out of the EU

May must find some leadership on Brexit

There is a worrying sense of drift in Downing Street.

We haven’t seen enough on vital issues at home, and our negotiations with the EU are turning into such an expensive fudge you’d think Mrs May was setting up a sweet shop for the summer holidays.

There are vital votes to be fought over this week in the Commons.

Win or lose, some Tory rebels will be plotting her successor.

She must prove that she — like the 17.4million people who voted for a brighter future outside the EU — believes in Britain and what it can be.

Transport supremo Chris Grayling looks derailed. His decision to sign off Thameslink’s fines for this year before they’d even run the trains is barking.

He needs to get our trains back on track.

Act now on crime wave

BRITAIN is in the grip of a crime wave and Sajid Javid must get on top of it.

The Home Secretary’s first priority should be to listen to our Beat the Blades taskforce, who today lay out their manifesto for knife-free streets.

A Government that doesn’t keep the public safe has failed its most fundamental duty.

We’re ready for kick-off

The build-up to the World Cup has been more political than ever.

But it is time to put that to one side. Whoever you support, enjoy the football.

Who knows, it may end 52 years of hurt…
