British PM Sunak Courts Votes Among Robots at Dawn

LUTON, England (Reuters) – In a bold campaign move, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak sought to connect with voters during an early morning visit to an Ocado distribution center near Luton. Amidst automated packing and bustling staff, Sunak, facing an uphill battle in the upcoming election, engaged with the heart of Britain’s technological prowess.

Sunak, visibly determined despite a grueling campaign schedule, began his day before dawn, observing robots efficiently preparing deliveries at Ocado, a cornerstone of British tech success. Donning a high-visibility jacket, he even joined in picking salad items, later sharing a casual tea with warehouse staff.

The surprise continued as Sunak made an impromptu stop at a motorway service station, queuing with journalists at McDonald’s for breakfast before mingling with supermarket employees. Undeterred by poll predictions, Sunak reaffirmed his commitment in a BBC interview, emphasizing the pivotal choice facing the nation in this critical election.

Throughout the day, Sunak is slated for multiple campaign events, culminating in a late-night rally, as he strives to narrow the gap with Labour leader Keir Starmer, widely expected to succeed him as prime minister.
