Boris Johnson will kick of his election campaign by urging voters to dump Remainer MPs blockading Brexit


BORIS Johnson will sound the election bugle tomorrow by urging voters to dump Remainer MPs blockading Brexit.

In a speech outside No10, he will try to frame the poll as a chance to change the dismal pattern of the last three years and get out of our rut.

Boris Johnson is set to formally kick off his election campaign and will address the nation outside No10 tomorrow

The PM will say it is a choice between getting Brexit done and Jeremy Corbyns toxic plan to waste 2020 with a second referendum.

Today the Labour leader made his own promise to get Brexit sorted within six months of winning power.

But Mr Johnson will say: There is only one way to get Brexit done, and I am afraid the answer is to ask the people to change this blockading parliament.

He will tell No10 staff Im off now to the front the bugle is calling before leaving for the key West Midlands election battleground.

Meanwhile, in other election developments:

  • Commons Leader Jacob Rees-Mogg was sidelined from the campaign for insulting Grenfell victims;
  • MrJohnson upset Tory moderates by binning a pledge to let MPs vote on whether to extend the Brexit transition period beyond 2020;
  • Labour’s Keir Starmer gave a car-crash interview on the partys muddled Brexit policy;
  • Mr Corbyn was accused of peddling a flat-out lie after he claimed a trade deal with the US could cost the NHS 500million a week.

Mr Johnson is expected to formally kick-off the December 12 election campaign with his speech to the nation after seeing the Queen at Buckingham Palace for the last time.

He will use his speech to try and get the Tories back on the front foot after a bumpy start.

In his speech, the PM will respond to Jeremy Corbyn’s claims that he could get Brexit sorted within six months if Labour are voted into power
