Boris Johnson in fresh push for UK general election

  Boris Johnson in fresh push for UK general election Prime minister Boris Johnson is to launch a third attempt to secure a UK general election and regain the initiative on Brexit. Mr Johnson will table a parliamentary motion seeking an election under the Fixed-Term Parliaments Act on Thursday night, to be voted on by MPs on Monday. The move will force the Labour party to decide if it will enable the prime minister to hold an election on December 12. If the parliamentary motion is approved, the government will then propose a new timetable to get Mr Johnson’s Brexit deal on to the statute book by November 6.

The Tory election manifesto will promise tax cuts to leave people with 'more of what they earn', Michael Gove has declared.

Exact details of the document are still being thrashed out by ministers ahead of its publication later this month.

But Mr Gove said that, as well as heavily trailed investment in schools, hospitals and the police, it would also include tax cuts and help with the cost of living.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, he said that there would be 'significant new policy in a number of areas, designed to ensure that people who are worried about the cost of living know that the Government is on their side'.

The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster declined to comment in detail, but ministers are known to be working on plans for a massive extension of free childcare for working parents. Mr Gove said: 'It's about making people's lives better.

'And that means taking steps to ensure people can keep more of what they earn. And that people can deal better with some of the cost of living challenges that we face, but also making sure that we have proper investment in public services.

'Boris throughout the leadership campaign made the point that you need a dynamic economy to fund public services but you also need strong public services in order to ensure people have the skills they need and the peace of mind they require in order to contribute.'

Tory tax plans remain a closely-guarded secret.

But Mr Gove confirmed officials are trawling through Mr Johnson's leadership campaign pledges as they put together the manifesto.

These include plans to raise the starting threshold for paying 40p tax from £50,000 to £80,000 and raising the threshold for national insurance from £8,632 to £12,500.

The first would be worth an average £2,400 to the better-off, while the second would be worth around £460 a year to all workers earning more than £12,500. That would also take 2.4million low-paid workers out of the national insurance system altogether.

Experts have warned the two massive tax cuts could cost £20billion. And while Mr Johnson is keen to push ahead with both, he is facing resistance from the Treasury at a time when it is being asked to fund big increases in spending on schools, hospitals and the police.

The Port Authority of Allegheny County says only the driver and one passenger were aboard the bus when it plunged into the hole. The passenger was taken to a hospital for a minor injury and the driver was uninjured.

Mr Gove said there would also be a string of measures on the environment. And ministers are working on a package of measures to bolster 'responsible capitalism' in response to Jeremy Corbyn's attacks on business.

Mr Gove likened the PM to the late US President Ronald Reagan, saying the two leaders shared the 'rare gift' of being able to 'bring a smile to people's faces' because of their own natural optimism.

He added: 'I think people have often underestimated the extent to Boris is – and people use different words – a progressive or one-nation, or centre-ground Conservative.

'He is an optimistic person who believes in the potential of each human to succeed in life and, you know, that's one of his great gifts.

'There are some politicians who bring a smile unprompted to people's faces because they think their country will be better under someone who's got that sense that the sun will rise on a better country tomorrow. Ronald Reagan had it, and Boris has it. It's a rare gift in politics.'

In the 2016 leadership campaign, Mr Gove torpedoed Mr Johnson's bid by warning he was 'not capable' of uniting the country or the party.

But, speaking on the campaign trail in the key target seat of Bristol yesterday, he said he 'already been proved wrong'. He acknowledged he would like to see a return for all 21 of the MPs exiled from the party for opposing No Deal, only ten of whom have so far been allowed back.

But he said Mr Johnson had been a 'good team captain' who had proved wrong even harsh critics such as former international development secretary Rory Stewart by securing a Brexit deal.

Mr Gove said he was 'sorry' the UK had failed to leave the EU on time on October 31. But he said Brexit would be delivered 'within weeks' of a Tory victory, and by January 31 'at the latest'.
