Boris Johnson to campaign on Brexit, schools and police while Jeremy Corbyn will exploit austerity


BORIS Johnson will fight the election with a campaign based on Brexit, schools and police while Jeremy Corbyn plans to exploit Britains austerity.

The battle lines have been drawn and Brits are going back to the polls this Christmas with the PM vowing to win a tough ballot.

Labour boss Mr Corbyn has called the national vote a chance of a lifetime and said he cant wait take on the Tories.

But Brexit has been put on hold and both parties know they need more than a solid stance on our divorce from Brussels to win over voters.

Mr Johnson started his election policy blitz almost as soon as he walked into No10.

In particular he has vowed to plunge cash into the NHS, extra cops, prisons, and schools.

The PM has made much of the 1.8bn of new money he plans to inject into our ailing health service with 20 hospitals in vote Leave areas from Newcastle to Cornwall – earmarked for refurbs.

The extra cash will provide new beds, cutting-edge equipment, ward improvements and building repairs, the government says.


Boris also plans to create 20,000 new Bobbies on the beat with 2,000 cops on the front-line by March.

The move will cost nearly 1billion over three years in a nationwide programme.

Chancellor Sajid Javid has also been handed 2.5bn to create 10,000 extra prison places, and 100million for airport-style scanners at jails.

England is facing one of the worst shortages of school places in decades and the Tories have pledged 14.5bn to open 30 new free schools.

Boris hopes this will create 20,000 new places for children across the country.

In a three-year funding increase every primary and secondary school in England will receive an above-inflation pay rise for every teacher.

Brexit will definitely be an important part of Bo-Jos campaign and he is expected to play heavily on a people vs Parliament strategy telling voters that MPs are responsible for delaying our divorce from the bloc.

The PM will tell voters he is the only person who can get Brexit done so his government can deliver on the peoples priorities.

One promise that Boris has made is to end freedom of movement “once and for all” after Brexit and “take back control” of Britain’s borders.

This is a policy that could be pivotal in Leave voting areas.


But Labour has targeted the years of austerity under the Conservatives and renationalisation of Britains industries at the heart of their campaign.

Mr Corbyn plans to launch a sweep of renationalisation with the water and energy utilities, train companies and Royal Mail all targeted.

The hard left plans will cost 196bn, as much as the annual income tax take from all UK workers, analysis by CBI claims.

It also claimed that savers and pensioners could suffer an estimated 9billion loss to their holdings.

Labour also plans to abolish the disastrous Universal Credit scheme launched by the Tories.

Mr Corbyn make major changes to the Governments troubled flagship welfare programme within the first 100 days of his Government and ditch it totally within five years.

However, the party has not yet announced what plan it has to replace the scheme.


In another radical move, Labour has plans to introduce a four-day working week if they get into power.

They will reduce the average working week down to 32 hours, but the party bizarrely claims it wont have any loss of earnings.

Jeremy Corbyn also wants to ensure Britains younger workers enjoy a rise in wages increasing the hourly wage to 10.

The policy would abolish the youth rate – which pays 4.35 for 16 and 17 year-olds – after previously announcing a hike from 8.21 for over-25s from 2020.

It would give 16 and 17 year-olds a top up of 2,500 every year.

One of Labours most controversial policies is to abolish every private school in England.


Mr Corbyn also plans to force the school to sell off their playing fields as part of his far-left plan.

Private schools will lose their multi-billion pound tax breaks and be ordered to sell off their buildings under the radical plans.

And as part of their shake-up of education, Labour also vowed to abolish the schools inspector Ofsted.

While Boris plans to plunge funding into hospitals in Leave constituencies – Labour has its own plans for the NHS.

The party revealed plans to abolish ALL prescription charges at their conference this year.

And they announced they would introduce free personal care for the elderly in England – a move which would cost an estimated 8bn a year.

Mr Corbyn has reacted angrily when his Brexit policy has been accused of being muddled .

But his plan is to broker a credible deal with Brussels and then put it to a peoples vote with the other option being remaining in the EU.

Under the Leave option, Jeremy Corbyn says he will spend months negotiating a new deal for the UK to stay an EU customs union and retain a close single market relationship.

He will then put both options back to the public with a second referendum – but has yet to say how the party would campaign.
