British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said on Tuesday he was aware some people were frustrated with both him and his governing Conservatives ahead of a July 4 election. The Conservatives, who have been in power for 14 years, are around 20 points behind the opposition Labour Party in the polls.

"I'm not blind to the fact that people are frustrated with our party and frustrated with me," Sunak said at the launch of the Conservatives' manifesto, setting out its future policy pledges. "Things have not always been easy, and we have not got everything right, but we are the only party in this election with the big ideas to make our country a better place to live."
