Brexit Party Gives Johnson an Election Boost

  Brexit Party Gives Johnson an Election Boost Britain’s euroskeptic Brexit Party said it won’t contest hundreds of Conservative Party-held districts in next month’s U.K. election, boosting Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s chances of re-election. Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage said his upstart party wouldn't field candidates in 317 seats won by the Conservatives in the 2017 election to avoid splintering the pro-Brexit vote and paving the way for anti-Brexit parties to form a coalition to call another referendum. require(["inlineoutstreamAd", "c.

Boris Johnson today branded Naga Munchetty's interview questions 'ridiculous' after the BBC Breakfast presenter quizzed him about his relationship with girlfriend Carrie Symonds and whether he believes he's 'relatable'.

The Prime Minister grew irritated when Munchetty took an aggressive line of questioning about his 'privileged upbringing' and whether he is a 'family man' - and instead tried to steer the conversation back on to his core Brexit messages.

Boris Johnson : Awkward moment Naga asks about girlfriend Carrie and struggles to answer. BORIS JOHNSON appeared on BBC Breakfast today in a lengthy chat with Naga Munchetty , but as the Prime Minister faced a grilling from Naga Munchetty about what makes him relatable as a family man.

Munchetty asked: Have you ever used a mop before ? You ’re not squeezing it for a start.’ Johnson acknowledged he has enjoyed a ‘very happy and wonderful life in many many ways’ whose parents gave him ‘fantastic opportunities’. He said he wants every child in the country to be able to achieve

He also came under scrutiny by the presenter over whether he has ever used a mop and defended the way he makes a cup of tea after viewers mocked his pouring of milk with the bag still brewing. 

At one point Munchetty criticised the Prime Minister's skills with a mop while showing video footage of him helping with the clean-up operation in flood-hit Derbyshire.

Labour's 'communist broadband' plan was spiralling out of control today as John McDonnell admitted parts of Virgin Media, Sky and TalkTalk could be nationalised alongside a huge chunk of BT. 

The shadow chancellor said it might be 'necessary' to bring other providers 'within the ambit' of his new British Broadband organisation - which he insists can offer every household 'free' internet.

The admission could add billions of pounds more to the price tag of the extraordinary policy - which Industry experts had already warned is likely to be five times more than the party's estimate of £20billion. 

Labour wants the state to take over the Openreach element of BT - which is responsible for maintaining and spreading phone and internet infrastructure across the country - with the government dictating the level of compensation.

Former Labour frontbencher Chris Leslie jibed that the party was pursuing 'mass nationalisation for ideological reasons'. 'Why not throw in free Sky TV? Free iPhones?' he said.  

As markets panicked at the prospect of the nationalisation of private assets in which millions of people have shares, TalkTalk put the sale of its full fibre broadband business, FibreNation, on hold.

Shares in BT dived around 2 per cent this morning as traders digested the implications,     

Boris Johnson branded the plan a 'crackpot scheme' that will 'cost many many billions of taxpayers' money'.

She said: 'Give us an idea of what the family man is like. Your partner Carrie Symonds is campaigning, you're a father, you're on the campaign trail.

'Why are you relatable to families up and down the country? How can they relate to you and your family?

The Prime Minister blustered: 'Well I think err... the best answer I can give... of course I've been err... I've had a very happy and wonderful life in many many ways. I was the beneficiary of... my parents gave me fantastic opportunities, they brought me up to do everything I possibly can.

'And what I want for every child in this country is to have a sense that they can achieve their full potential.'

He then tried to steer the conversation back on to Brexit turf, citing the 2016 Leave vote as a barometer for public unhappiness     

But determined to press him, Munchetty interrupted: 'No, no you've come away from... 

Mr Johnson interjected: 'I don't generally talk about my family.'

He has long imposed a blanket ban on talking about his family, and refuses to answer any questions about his children. 

This morning's tetchy BBC Breakfast exchange continued when Munchetty showed Mr Johnson a video of him mopping a wet floor in flood-hit Derbyshire earlier this week.

She said: 'This is why people perhaps don't think you're relatable, have you ever used a mop before?' 

The Prime Minister vigorously defended himself, insisting he knows how to mop and that, despite Munchetty's withering assessment, he had in fact 'squeezed' it.

A Conservative campaign clip showed Mr Johnson adding milk to his brew with the tea bag still inside.

This morning he said: 'What's wrong with that? What are people objecting to?' 

At the end of the interview, Mr Johnson tried to iron out the confusion about whether he was relatable and said: 'Am I relatable? I haven't the faintest idea.

'That seems to be the most difficult psychological question that anyone's ever asked me.'

Munchetty replied: 'Well I'm glad we challenged you,' before the broadcast ended amicably with a handshake. 

Boris Johnson suggests £88billion HS2 rail project linking London and the North WILL go ahead - as he offers £500million to reopen rail lines closed for 50 years 

Boris Johnson suggested today that he will allow the heavily criticised £88billion HS2 rail project to go ahead.

The Prime Minister said it was his 'instinct' not to scrap large infrastructure projects after he was grilled on the north-south link that is running massively over-budget and behind schedule.

He told the BBC he was not 100 per cent' behind the programme but asked if it would be cancelled he said: 'I really do hesitate... that's my instinct.'

It came after the Tories pledged to spend £500million on reopening rail lines axed in the notorious Beeching closures of the Sixties.

The 'Beeching reversal fund' will be spent on reconnecting branch lines to towns cut off from the rail network. 

It forms part of a package of support aimed at communities that Mr Johnson said had been 'left behind.'

The pledge will also be seen as a pitch to parts of the Midlands and the North, where the Tories believe they can win over Leave voters from Labour at next month's election.

Mr Johnson has previously admitted the costs of the HS2 would probably be 'north of £100bn'.

But review this week said it should go ahead despite soaring costs.

An independently-led government review recommends ministers commit to the full proposed network connecting London, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds.

The leaked document admits that it is 'not affordable' within the £56 billion budget set in the 2015 government spending review.

The new estimate of £88 billion is likely to be increased again, the report noted. 

'We will get the numbers down': Boris Johnson pledges to reduce 'very high' unskilled immigration after Brexit ends free movement - but refuses to get into a 'numbers game'

Boris Johnson insisted the Tories would reduce unskilled immigration into Britain today as he said current rates were 'very high'.

The Prime Minister said he was 'a pro-immigration politician' but said that changes would be made if he won the election and went through with Brexit.

His comments in a BBC interview came after hardline Home Secretary Priti Patel yesterday vowed to reduce numbers but declined to commit to 'arbitrary targets'.

Mr Johnson also declined to put a target on immigration levels this morning but said that the current rate was putting a 'strain' on public services and holding down wages.

These claims are disputed by Labour, which is fighting its own internal battle over immigration policy.

Mr Johnson told the BBC: 'When it comes to unskilled immigration, people that don't have a job to come to, we will get the numbers down. 

'And overall as a result it will be lower. I can't give you a figure, but it will be lower. If you'll forgive me I'm not going to get into a numbers game.'

The Tories have abandoned a decade-old pledge to cut net migration to below 100,000 a year. But Ms Patel yesterday said: 'We will reduce immigration while being more open to the highly skilled people we need.' 

When asked about NHS staff and immigration today, Mr Johnson said that the Conservatives were introducing new fast-track visas for nurses, 'not just from other EU countries but from across the world'.

The PM was asked by a caller to the BBC 5 Live phone-in if he felt any shame or responsibility for the state of the NHS.

He said: 'Of course I feel a massive sense of responsibility, I take responsibility for everything the government does, that's my job.

'Let's be in no doubt. I'm proud of everything the NHS does and I'm acutely conscious we need more funding.'

Yesterday a senior Labour frontbencher admitted the party will 'extend' freedom of movement rights if it wins the election as a furious civil war broke out over its immigration policy.

Shadow home secretary Diane Abbott made the admission on Twitter after a trade union kingpin had warned that such a plan could cost it seats in its working class heartlands.

Another shadow minister had earlier refused to say whether Labour would keep or scrap freedom of movement if it took power.

Laura Pidcock, seen as a potential future party leader, branded immigration targets 'arbitrary' and said concerns were a 'false flag' - a deliberate attempt to deceive people.

Unite leader Len McCluskey, a close ally of Jeremy Corbyn, had earlier said the party's official policy of keeping open borders was 'not a sensible approach'.

Ms Abbott later hit back, saying: 'The Labour Party is committed to maintaining and extending Freedom of Movement rights.'
