BORIS: THE LAST CHANCE TO SAVE BREXIT AND BRITAIN
PRIME MINISTER’S MESSAGE TO DAILY EXPRESS READERS
BORIS JOHNSON today warns Daily Express readers that the General Election is the “last chance” to save Brexit.
In an exclusive interview,
the Prime Minister admitted that, with just three days to go, the race for Downing Street is “very, very close”.
He insisted that getting the UK out of the EU at last can unleash “a golden age of investment and growth” that could boost the economy by £150billion and “bring the country together” after years of division.
And he pledged to fight for every vote to save the country from more Brexit delay and the economic chaos of a Jeremy Corbyn-led hard-Left Labour government.
He said: “Thursday is the last chance, not only to save Brexit but also to save this country from chaos. It’s a choice between progress and chaos, as simple as that.
“It’s a choice between resolution, harmony, moving forward or going backwards, acrimony and division.”
In a wide-ranging interview, he said his partner Carrie Symonds had been a “massive support” to his campaign and mocked Mr Corbyn’s confusion about whether he watched the Queen’s Speech on Christmas Day.
With polling day close, the Prime Minister was passionate about the need to win over millions of voters.
“I think a lot of people are still undecided and we definitely need every vote. It’s very tight. If we get nine more seats, we get a working majority. We lose 12 seats and we are in chaos.”
Using a cricketing metaphor, he said: “We can smash it out of the ground. But we need to remember, this could be a very, very close election. This is one of the elections that could go down to the last over.” Mr Johnson urged voters to consider the “starkness” of the choice between his one-nation vision and Mr Corbyn’s brand of hard-Left socialism.
“Do they really want chaos, confusion and deadlock or do they want a really dynamic Conservative government that will really get on with things, deliver on their priorities and get Brexit done. People go on about trust in politics – look at what I say and what I deliver,” he said, pointing at his record in office as London mayor in cutting crime and building affordable houses while spearheading major projects including Crossrail and the 2012 London Olympics.
“We can bring back some of the spirit that brought the country
