The row comes as the Brexit parties' candidate lists were finally announced with polling day now less than four weeks away.

  • PUT HIS FOOT IN IT

    Boris Johnson tells BBC Breakfast that he last went to hospital for treatment after cutting his foot on a broken cafetiere at a BBQ last year.

    He was jumping up and down to the music, apparently.

    I hate it when that happens.

  • BAGS OF TIME

    Boris Johnson has said the government will have “bags of time?” to a new UK-EU trade deal by the end of 2020.

    The PM told BBC Breakfast it “broke his heart” that the last Brexit deadline was extended but if the Tories win a majority then he can “absolutely guarantee” the next one will be met.

  • WORKING CLASS BRITS BACK TORIES

    Working class Brits are throwing their support behind the Tories more than Labour.

    Boris Johnson’s party has seen a surge in popularity with ordinary people – setting the PM on course to a secure a Commons majority in the general election, a poll suggested on Thursday.

    The number of working class voters backing the Tories has increased from 35 per cent in 2017 to 43 per cent in 2019, a Telegraph poll revealed.

    Labour – seen as the working man’s party – has experienced a dip in support from 42 per cent two years ago to 28 per cent now.

  • FARAGE THREATENS TO REPORT TORIES TO POLICE

    Nigel Farage has threatened to report the Conservative Party to the police after he accused No10 of sabotage as two Brexit Party candidates abandoned his fight for the election.

    The Brexit Party boss accused Boris Johnson's team of offering his MP hopefuls peerages and Government jobs to members of his party in exchange for standing down.

    He fumed: “The system is corrupt and broken.”  

  • NET MIGRATION TO SOAR UNDER LABOUR, TORIES SAY

    Net migration would skyrocket to three times the current level under Labour’s open borders policy, the Tories claimed yesterday.

    Priti Patel has warned voters that “immigration would surge” under Labour because Jeremy Corbyn has “no credible plan”.

    The Tories claim if Labour goes ahead to extend freedom of movement to the rest of the world then it would see annual net migration soaring to 840,000 a year over the next decade.

    That would add a population the size of Manchester and Newcastle to the UK every year over the next decade.
