BORIS Johnson and Rishi Sunak today vow to stand united and steer us through the cost of living crisis.
It is a welcome show of unity. But they must get their act together fast if they are to save this country’s tanking economy.1Boris must turbocharge the economy and win back trust of votersCredit: Getty
In their joint article, they highlight the National Insurance changes that will hand back hundreds of pounds to cash-strapped Brits on Wednesday.
But taxes are still rising for millions and the PM and Chancellor are still addicted to disastrous high-spending policies.
They point out that “we need to rebuild and grow the economy”.
Boris and Rishi must take an axe to the profligate State sector, and stop hosing away money on the likes of foreign aid and armies of woke diversity officers.
It’s also time for an end to every hare-brained scheme where the taxpayer foots the bill.

All very worthy, but why should hard-pressed British taxpayers cough up for it?
The PM and Chancellor are fast running out of time.
If they don’t tackle public spending now they won’t be able to make meaningful tax cuts down the line.
Only that will turbocharge the stuttering economy, restore growth and win back the trust of voters.Plane blame shame
IT is a scandal that travellers are still facing chaos at Britain’s airports.
Hundreds of thousands of holidays have already been ruined in recent weeks.
The latest flight cancellations will only deepen the misery as schools break up for the summer.
Ministers have repeatedly told airlines and airports struggling with shortages to get their house in order.
Yes, civil servants have been taking far too long to vet new workers like baggage handlers.
But under new plans announced by Transport Minister Grant Shapps these applications will now be fast-tracked.
Under the new system, most counter-terror checks are taking no more than five days, speeding up recruitment.
As Mr Shapps says, it is now unforgivable if the air industry still fails to deliver.Read More on The SunPRIZE REACTION I won £14m on the lottery as a single mum - I quit work and ditched family
It is high time they stopped pointing the finger at others and got on with the job of ensuring families can enjoy their well-deserved holiday breaks.

Chiefs Urged to Trade Newly-Signed Veteran RB to Division Rival
Getty Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid on January 16, 2022.
Heading into training camp, the Kansas City Chiefs were expected to have a strong competition among the running backs. But that competition has turned out to be much more fierce than previously anticipated.
The higher level of competition among the backs is mainly due to undrafted rookie Isiah Pacheco, who is grabbing national attention for his work on the ground, in the passing game, and pass protection during the first two weeks of training camp.
Can confirm some of the training camp hype on Isiah Pacheco. He definitely passes the eyeball test in person while showing impressive burst and power. There’s a lot of juice to his game.

Pacheco shining this summer puts players like veteran Ronald Jones II, who the Chiefs signed to a one-year, $1.5 million this offseason, on the roster bubble. Jones has struggled to stand out among the other running backs during training camp, which could make his stint in Kansas City short-lived. That’s why one analyst believes the defending AFC West champions could pull off a trade with a division rival to ship away Jones and get something in return.Trade: Ronald Jones to Raiders

Place a ‘No Sweat First Bet’ on the NFL This Week
NFL analyst Justin Melo of The Draft Network wrote about Jones potentially being on the trade block if he doesn’t prove his worth throughout Kansas City’s three preseason games. He suggests that the Las Vegas Raiders could be one of the teams the Chiefs could trade Jones to.
“Fourth-round rookie Zamir White may end up being the Raiders’ lead back before the dust settles on the 2022 season,” Melo wrote on August 11. “White was excellent in Thursday’s Hall of Fame game, carrying the ball on 11 occasions for a team-high 52 rushing yards. Former New England Patriot Brandon Bolden is also in the mix as a pass-catching back. Should Jacobs and/or Drake be released or traded, Jones may qualify as an intriguing buy-low replacement.”
Despite having an unusually high amount of reps during the Hall of Fame Game, Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels was adamant that Las Vegas has no intention of trading Jacobs. Drake is in line to be the team’s primary pass-catching back this season, so trading him away is not likely either. That’s why trading Jones to the Raiders is a long shot at this point.
Crazier scenarios have played out in the NFL, though.Eric Bieniemy Reveals Thoughts on Jones
Speaking to the media after practice on Aug. 7, Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy discussed what he’s seen from Jones thus far in training camp.
“RoJo (Ronald Jones) is doing a heck of a job,” Bieniemy said. “He’s obviously a big man, he’s done some good things running the football.”Play

Despite the praise, Bieniemy does believe Jones has some work to do before he’s the back Kansas City wants him to be.
“He just needs to continue becoming the football player we expect him to be because we expect our guys to do a lot from that running back position,” Bieniemy explained. “The thing that he’s done is he’s accepted the challenge and he’s doing things he really hasn’t done in the past.”
With the defending AFC West champions in their second week of padded practices, they are now prepping to face the Chicago Bears in their preseason opener. That game is set to take place at noon CST on Saturday, August 13, at Soldier Field in Chicago.
Head coach Andy Reid announced on Thursday, August 11 that Kansas City’s starters would play one quarter of football against the Bears. Jones is expected to be one of the running backs getting carries in that game. When those carries will take place in the game remains to be seen.READ MORE:
