BREXIT AND BRI­TAIN IN YOUR HANDS

Daily Express - - Front Page -

TO­DAY the coun­try has the op­por­tu­nity to give a great Prime Min­is­ter the power he needs to de­liver Brexit and un­lock an ex­cit­ing fu­ture for your fam­ily and com­ing gen­er­a­tions.

This is a truly piv­otal elec­tion. Bri­tain has the chance to es­cape the chaos and the cow­ardice that has gripped West­min­ster, and re­ject the pes­simism, bit­ter­ness and fa­nati­cism which has in­fected Labour and the Lib­eral Democrats.The 2016 Ref­er­en­dum demon­strated that the peo­ple of the United King­dom have greater faith and con­fi­dence in this na­tion’s po­ten­tial than our po­lit­i­cal class.Too many MPs were fright­ened of a fu­ture out­side the Euro­pean Union and con­nived to thwart Brexit.

You are right to feel Boris John­son’s frus­tra­tion and ex­as­per­a­tion at the de­struc­tive an­tics of in­tran­si­gent Re­main­ers. To­day you can en­sure that a ma­jor­ity of the men and women we send to Par­lia­ment are peo­ple who love

this na­tion as deeply as you do and will work night and day to en­sure the prom­ise of Brexit be­comes a re­al­ity.The only way to do this is to vote Con­ser­va­tive and give Mr John­son the ma­jor­ity he needs to lift the coun­try out of its present quag­mire.

We face a choice with global con­se­quences: do you be­lieve Bri­tain’s finest days are in the past and the best we can do is man­age de­cline? Or – as we have done so many times in our proud his­tory – is this the mo­ment for na­tional re­newal in which we re­vive ev­ery re­gion by forg­ing friend­ships and trad­ing part­ner­ships through­out a world rich in op­por­tu­nity?

For too long Bri­tain’s so-called elite has suf­fered from a deficit of am­bi­tion. They have been con­tent to pre­side over stag­na­tion.

The con­se­quences have been ter­ri­ble. Fam­i­lies in once-mighty in­dus­trial heart­lands have watched pros­per­ity evap­o­rate. All that Labour of­fers is the pu­trid pol­i­tics of envy and vic­tim­hood and an eco­nomic blue­print for bank­ruptcy.

Jeremy Cor­byn’s scan­dalous fail­ure to tackle anti-Semitism and misog­yny in Labour ranks, and his ap­palling frater­nising with apol­o­gists for mur­der, should dis­qual­ify him from pub­lic of­fice.

Re­nais­sance

Mil­lions of peo­ple will to­day aban­don Labour be­cause the party no longer rep­re­sents the val­ues of its past lead­ers.

But a vote for Mr John­son’s Con­ser­va­tives is more than a vote to deny Mr Cor­byn and his equally dan­ger­ous side­kick John McDon­nell con­trol of White­hall.

It is a vote for a Tory leader who is ablaze with love for this coun­try, faith in its peo­ple and hope for our fu­ture. He is a leader of great elo­quence, proven abil­ity and true com­pas­sion who will strive to un­leash noth­ing less than a re­nais­sance.

He knows that too many com­mu­ni­ties suf­fer dire trans­port links; he un­der­stands why all chil­dren need a world-class ed­u­ca­tion to thrive. He needs no lec­tures about the cru­cial role of the NHS; and he is de­ter­mined to bring ter­ror­ists and crim­i­nals alike to jus­tice.

With sim­i­lar con­fi­dence and op­ti­mism we should give him the man­date and the ma­jor­ity he needs to res­cue this coun­try from the democ­racy-deny­ing mis­er­abilists who scoff at pa­tri­o­tism and sneer at the de­sire of work­ing peo­ple to re­store sovereignt­y and ig­nite pros­per­ity.

Mr John­son has al­ready de­fied the pes­simists and won an ex­cel­lent Brexit deal. With his team at the helm of the coun­try, a re-United King­dom can start its new chap­ter in a po­si­tion of strength.

That bal­lot pa­per in your hands to­day is the key to un­lock­ing the po­ten­tial of a bright and pros­per­ous Bri­tain.
