One voice stands out about the cost of living crisis and that is Gordon Brown, the ex-Labour PM and campaigner for social justice and greater prosperity for all.

The high esteem in which he is held around the world underlines how much Britain and the rest of the globe were fortunate he was in No10 during the 2008 financial collapse.

He masterminded a rescue plan when the ignorant Tories led by David Cameron and George Osborne would have deepened the damage to living standards.

Mr Brown is again proposing answers and demanding urgent action in the 2022 crisis.

He shames holidaying PM Boris Johnson and Chancellor Nadhim Zahawi plus leadership hopefuls Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak.

The No10 contenders are far more interested in appeasing the tiny 0.2% in the Conservative Party than speaking to the nation.

Britain would be in a better place if Gordon Brown was still Prime Minister.

Age concern

Age does not travel alone as republican Labour MP Dennis Skinner would note, and that applies to the Queen, 96.

We are becoming used to a monarch who has served her country for 70 years now cancelling events as her health falters.

Buckingham Palace is judging whether she is well enough to fulfil obligations but no one should be surprised that the head of state is no longer as sprightly.

People’s mindset on this issue is changing, from the Prime Minister, diplomats and
courtiers to members of the British public.

Instead of expecting the Queen to turn up or greet visitors, we are beginning to be grateful when she can and understanding when she cannot. That transition at least is under way.
