  Johnson reveals first 100 days plan with election a week away With just a week to the general election, Boris Johnson is already confidently - if not complacently - talking about his plans for the fist 100 days of a majority Tory government. With opinion polls still suggesting a comfortable lead for the Conservatives, the prime minister has announced plans for a Commons vote on Brexit, a Queen's Speech and a post-Brexit budget.Labour has responded by claiming a Tory victory would mean more austerity, privatisation and tax giveaways, while the Liberal Democrats have denounced Mr Johnson's promises as fantasy.

Boris Johnson and the Tories hold a 12 point poll lead over Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party with the general election now just nine days away.

A new survey conducted by Kantar between November 28 and December 2 puts the Conservative Party on 44 per cent overall, a one per cent increase on the company's last poll on November 26.

The numbers will cause alarm in Labour headquarters this morning as the party scrambles to try to overhaul Mr Johnson's massive poll lead.

Labour has been shown to be making gains in a number of polls published in the past few days.

Johnson 'World's Leading Sycophant' To Donald Trump, Says Corbyn

  Johnson 'World's Leading Sycophant' To Donald Trump, Says Corbyn Jeremy Corbyn has branded Boris Johnson the “world’s leading sycophant” to Donald Trump. The Labour leader has made the accusation as the US president is due to arrive in the UK for a NATO summit on Monday. Trump will spend two days in the country, meeting the Queen at Buckingham Palace and other world leaders at the summit in Watford. It is thought Johnson and Trump will hold a joint press conference also as the campaign for the December 12 general election enters its final stretch. Making a speech on foreign policy in York, Corbyn accused Johnson of being too close to the president, saying it was “time to stop clinging on to Donald Trump’s coat-tails”.

The US president flatly dismissed the Labour leader's warning that he wants to open the health service to American companies and push up the price of drugs.

Speaking as he ran the gauntlet of a NATO summit in London with the election campaign in full swing, Mr Trump insisted the US 'wouldn't touch the NHS if you gave it to us on a silver platter'.

Despite initially saying he had 'no thoughts' on the UK ballot, Mr Trump lavished praise on Boris Johnson for doing a 'great job' and made clear he had always supported Brexit.

The dramatic intervention came as Mr Corbyn went all-out to 'weaponise' the US President's arrival as he tries to claw back the Tories' poll advantage. A survey published today gives the Tories a 12 point lead over Labour.

The same poll puts the Liberal Democrats on 15 per cent - up one point on the previous survey - while the Brexit Party is down one point to two per cent.

The poll conducted by Kantar also highlights the extent to which different age groups are divided over the election.

It suggests that if the election was limited to people under the age of 55 then Labour would have a narrow lead over the Tories, 39 per cent to 36 per cent.

But if it was limited to people over the age of 55 the Conservatives would have a 30 point lead over Labour, 53 per cent to 23 per cent.

In terms of the issues which are dictating how people intend to vote, four in ten (39 per cent) said Brexit is the most important thing while one in four (23 per cent) said it was the NHS.

On the issue of leadership the poll represents a significant boost for Mr Johnson.

When asked to choose between the current PM and Mr Corbyn as who would be the best leader for the UK, four in ten people said Mr Johnson and 22 per cent said the Labour chief.

Some 27 per cent chose neither man while 10 per cent said they did not know.

The Kantar poll came as a separate survey carried out by ICM Research gave the Tories a seven point lead over Labour.

A massive YouGov poll published last week suggested the Tories were on course to win a 68 seat majority with the party set to pick up 44 seats from Labour's crumbling 'red wall' in Leave-voting areas.

Len McCluskey, a leading ally of Mr Corbyn, admitted in an interview published yesterday that Labour's Leave-voting heartlands could be the party's 'Achilles' heel' at the election.

The general secretary of the Unite union suggested Labour's stance of staying neutral on Brexit while offering a second referendum was problematic in areas in the north of England and Midlands which voted to Leave the EU in 2016.

Jeremy Corbyn FINALLY says sorry for anti-Semitism in the Labour Party but insists he has 'dealt with it' as he is savaged by Philip Schofield in bad-tempered exchange on This Morning

Jeremy Corbyn finally said sorry for the anti-Semitism crisis that has engulfed the Labour Party - but insisted he has 'dealt with it'.

The opposition leader apologised in a bad-tempered exchange live on This Morning after being pressed by host Philip Schofield.

Mr Corbyn has steadfastly refused in recent days to apologise directly in media interviews in recent days as the issue has reared its head in the election campaign - although he has had sorry previously.

But appearing on ITV's magazine show with Schofield and co-host Holly Willoughby, he was pressed to say sorry, with Schofield asking: 'Why can't you say sorry?'

Mr Corbyn finally relented saying: 'Obviously I am very sorry for everything that has happened.

'But I would like to make it clear that we are dealing with it - I have dealt with it.'

  Boris Johnson will NOT hold official talks with Donald Trump despite President being in the UK for Nato summit after fears it would tarnish his election bid The prospect of Donald Trump's visit has been a nightmare for Tory strategists, who fear that one misplaced comment or Tweet could damage Boris Johnson's electoral fortunes.Mr Trump arrived in the UK tonight ahead of a two-day summit of Nato leaders, starting tomorrow.

The U.K.’ s ruling Conservatives have a 6 point lead over the opposition Labour Party and Boris Johnson is more than twice as popular as Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn as a future prime minister, a ComRes poll for the Express newspaper showed .

The US president flatly dismissed the Labour leader's warning that he wants to open the health service to American companies and push up drugs prices.

Speaking as he ran the gauntlet of a NATO summit in London with the election campaign in full swing, Mr Trump insisted the US 'wouldn't touch the NHS if you gave it to us on a silver platter'.

And despite initially saying he had 'no thoughts' on the UK ballot, Mr Trump lavished praise on Boris Johnson for doing a 'great job' and made clear he had always supported Brexit.

The dramatic intervention came as Mr Corbyn went all-out to 'weaponise' the President's arrival as he desperately tries to claw back the Tories' poll advantage. A poll today found the Conservatives are 12 points ahead.

'Candidates have been withdrawn by the Liberal Democrats, and the Conservatives and by us because of it. We just do not accept it in any form whatsoever.'

Mr Corbyn was embroiled in a row with the Chief Rabbi last week, saying he was  'wrong' to accuse Labour of failing to tackle anti-Semitism - as the party leader refused four times to apologise to British Jews.

In a bruising prime time pre-election interview with the BBC's Andrew Neil, Mr Corbyn said he wanted to have 'a discussion' with Ephraim Mirvis after he accused the left-winger of  allowing the 'poison' of anti-Semitism to take root in Labour.

The Labour leader was challenged over Mr Mirvis's allegation that Labour's claims it is doing everything to tackle anti-Jewish racism was a 'mendacious fiction'.

'No, he's not right. Because he would have to produce the evidence to say that's mendacious,' Mr Corbyn replied.

He insisted he has 'developed a much stronger process' and had sanctioned and removed members who have been anti-Semitic.

But he floundered when Mr Neil detailed specific cases of anti-Semitism by Labour members who faced little or no sanction.

On ITV's This Morning, Mr Corbyn was asked about questions arising over whether Russian disinformation was behind Labour's 451-page unredacted report that revealed the details of talks between UK and US officials regarding a future trade deal between the two countries.

He told the programme: 'I held the dossier up because it had been released, and I've seen it, and at no stage until today when this new conspiracy theory arose has anyone challenged the correctness of that document, the veracity of that document.'

Mr Corbyn added: 'If the document is not accurate, then why is it, it's been out there all this time, no minister has claimed it's inaccurate.

'No Government has, and in reality the minutes are there of meetings which involved Liam Fox in the early stages and officials later on.

'And Donald Trump himself said everything is on the table, including our National Health Service.'
