Letwin And Farage Set to go Head-to-Head.

Oliver Letwin and Richard Robinson will be launching the Conservatives Local and European Election Campaigns in Portsmouth on Monday, TBG can exclusively reveal.

The event coincides with Nigel Farage launching UKIP's campaign in the same city on the same day.

TBG can exclusively reveal that at the very heart of the Conservatives campaign is an historic "City Deal" between Group Leader Donna Jones and Cities Minister Gregg Clark that is set to create a whopping 17,000 new jobs in the area.

TBG can confirm that Drayton and Farlington candidate Simon Bosher will say in the manifesto to be launched on Monday that "This deal will help the long-term unemployed get back to work and ensure that people have the skills employers in Portsmouth need."
