EU Launch Legal Action Against UK

SKY News now reporting that EU officials have launched a legal case against the UK for failing to name a new commissioner.

The commissioner would serve in the new European Commission that is due to take over from 1 December.

Officials have given Britain a deadline of November 22 to respond.

In a statement, the executive commission said: "The European Commission has today sent a letter of formal notice to the United Kingdom for breaching its EU Treaty obligations by not suggesting a candidate for the post of EU Commissioner."

EXCLUSIVE: Dudley Brexit Party Candidate Quits At Last Minute

Dudley North Brexit Party Candidate has sensationally quit this evening citing the dangers of Jeremy Corbyn and his left wing loopy attack dogs, Momentum

"It is with a heavy heart I have decided not to contest Dudley North as a Brexit Party candidate.

"I am putting country before party as it is highly conceivable my candidacy could allow Corbyn’s Momentum candidate to win."

"They are simply not fit to govern."

Letter below:

EU Threaten Legal Action

THE EU is not ruling out taking legal action against the UK for refusing to put forward a candidate for European Commissioner before the end of this month.

The EU says this is a "very special and complex situation and an exceptional situation.”

TBG understands that "all options and avenues are being discussed."

Farage Under 11th Hour Pressure

The Times are reporting that Senior Brexit Party figures are pushing Nigel Farage to stage an 11th-hour climb down and pull candidates from Boris Johnson’s top target seats hours before nominations close.

John Longworth, the Brexit Party MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber said: “In order to box clever for Brexit, my personal view is that the Brexit Party should focus its efforts on a limited number of constituencies which it thinks it can win and on constituencies where it can split the Labour vote.”

He has been joined in his call by fellow MEP Lance Forman who said: “I call upon all Conservative and Brexit Party PPCs In Leave voting constituencies to meet and decide who will be the most popular and allow the weaker one to stand aside.”

Boris Refuses To Send EU Commissioner

TBG can reveal this morning that a major row is brewing in both Westminster and Brussels that could see Britain sensationally kicked out of the EU even before a vote has been cast.

As we reported on Facebook last night, Boris Johnson is refusing to appoint an EU Commissioner.

Boris says it’s against election rules.

What’s more, the Deadline of Nov 11th has apparently already been missed.

Boris’ argument is that "the UK should not normally make nominations or put forward candidates for senior international appointments (including appointments to European institutions) until after the election."

TBG can’t wait for Brussels response later today.

Only last night Donald Tusk said that campaigners should never give up on stopping Brexit.

Belinda De Lucy told TBG “Demoralising voters and our faith in the ballot box by wearing us down, telling us our vote didn’t count because we weren’t educated enough to vote like them, is one of the most destructive by products of the Remain campaign.”

Chaos In Canterbury

THERE is absolute chaos in both Labour and the Lib Dems in Canterbury after a unilateral alliance sensationally backfired, TBG can sensationally reveal.

It’s all over the national party’s decision to find a candidate to replace Tim Walker who stood down earlier today to give Labour’s Rosie Duffield a chance to unite the Remain vote and beat the Conservatives.

Duffield was sensationally linked with a move to the Lib Dems herself just weeks ago.

A local source has told TBG that the local party members had a vote amongst themselves.

They decided not to field a candidate.

However, this was overruled by Lib Dem’s HQ.

Thus meaning that local members have until Thursday to select a new candidate.

There are four local Lib Dems who are approved candidates.

However, not a single one is willing to stand.

Thus meaning that the national party will now have to impose a candidate on Canterbury from outside the city completely.

Lucas Attacks Swinson In F Word Tirade

CRACKS have opened in the Remain Alliance between the Lib Dems and Green Party.

It follows a sensational attack on Jo Swinson on a political web site.

Green Party Leader Lucas is said to have fumed at Swinson by saying that their position of revoke “is taking party interest above national interest to such an unforgivable degree.”

Lucas went on; “To be honest, if you wanted to send a message to 17.4 million people that you don’t give a f*** what they have just said, why don’t you just say so?”

Flick Drummond To Stand In Meon Valley

TORY Remainer Flick Drummond is to be the party’s candidate for Meon Valley in the 2019 General Election, TBG can reveal.

Drummond sensationally lost Portsmouth South In 2017 despite winning it in 2015.

The Meon Valley seat became vacant when Sir George Hollingbery announced he was standing down last week.

In 2017 Hollingbery had a majority of 25,692.

Go One Step Further Nigel

The assurances given by Boris Johnson that have, to a certain extent, won over Nigel Farage, have won over me too.

The Leave Alliance is a huge step forward but now the Brexit Party have done it for the 317 Conservatives seats I beg them to go one step further.

There are 50 seats that the Conservatives are targeting to win a comfortable majority to get Brexit done including Portsmouth South.

Nigel Farage should pull out of those seats too,

Otherwise we could well be left with another hung Parliament caused by a split Leave vote and even though a second referendum would be off the table, minor parties could still pull the strings.

So I will be voting Conservative in this election and I urge everybody else in the News area to do the same.

Election Game Changer - Farage to Fight Remainer Seats Only

NIGEL Farage has given Boris Johnson a huge boost by pulling out his candidates in the 317 seats the Conservatives won in 2017.

Even the pound rose as the Brexit Party Leader declared his “unilateral” alliance in what is without doubt a game changer for the General Election.

Question marks still remain over Labour marginals that the Tories would need to win to get an outright majority though.

Mr Farage says the decision “prevents a second referendum from happening.”

He says he’s “putting country before party.”

“We will concentrate our efforts into every seat held by the Labour Party and the rest of the Remainer parties.”

Boris Johnson has said he has "absolutely not" done a deal with Nigel Farage.

The Prime Minister said: "I'm glad that there's a recognition that there is only one way to get Brexit done and that is to vote for us and to vote for the Conservatives."

Corbyn Problems Mount Over Nuclear Deterrent

Jeremy Corbyn’s problems as regards Britain’s nuclear deterrent mounted this morning after a car crash interview with Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry was aired on ITV.

Thornberry said “It is impossible for any human to say whether they would be prepared to kill millions” before adding that she is not prepared to say 'one way or the other' as to whether she would use nuclear weapons to protect the country.

A Downing Street source told TBG “If Corbyn is unable to make crucial decisions to keep our country safe, he’s not fit to be PM.”

“The fact Thornberry is openly speculating that her leader could be overruled by committee on matter as fundamental as using nuclear deterrent shows just how weak he really is”.

Trott In A Pickle

TBG can sensationally reveal that a former advisor to David Cameron who was recently chosen as the Conservatives candidate in Sevenoaks recently attacked Boris Johnson and predicted he would not get changes to the Withdrawal Agreement.

Brexit Party Candidate Stands Down In Telford

“We cannot allow the Labour Party into power by default.”

“The Brexit Party and Nigel Farage have done so much to change politics for good.”

Conservatives Resign Antony Calvert

The Sunday Times are reporting that The Conservative Party has resigned as a candidate in the key marginal seat of Wakefield after The Sunday Times unearthed evidence of his controversial past remarks about food banks and feminism.

Antony Calvert, a Tory candidate in the Labour-held seat of Wakefield, said ahead of the 2015 general election that “if ever there was a reason to be involved in public office” it was to expose “ludicrous” claims of food poverty in the UK. He also said Labour’s Harriet Harman had to stop “banging on about wholly and utterly irrelevant feminist issues”.

Natalie Elphicke To Replace Husband As Tory Candidate

TBG can sensationally reveal a truly amazing turn of events in Dover last night where Natalie Elphicke has been chosen to replace husband Charlie as Tory PPC.

Charlie had the Tory whip withdrawn after allegations were made against him but that hasn’t stopped wife Natalie from taking over instead.

More Labour Chaos

THERE'S even more Labour chaos today.

The latest Labour Candidate under pressure is West Derby’s, Ian Byrne.

TBG has heard that LBC has unearthed some abusive social media posts from him directed at female politicians.

He also suggested that Boris Johnson's mum had been "raped by Jimmy Savile.”

Liz Truss told TBG - “This is a man has stood on a stage with Jeremy Corbyn.”

“The Labour leader continually calls for a kinder, gentler politics but has continued to preside over a culture of sexism, misogyny and abuse within his own party.”

The above is his election leaflet that has some very high profile endorsements.

Last night the Labour candidate in Clacton, Gideon Bull, quit over anti Semitic remark.

TBG has also uncovered this tweet [left] showing support for Chris Williamson.

A Labour candidate in Aberdeenshire has also quit following a row over anti-Semitism. Kate Ramsden stood down in the Gordon constituency after the Jewish Chronicle highlighted a blog post from her.

Another Scottish Labour candidate, Frances Hoole, has also been dropped over a social media post attacking her SNP opponent.

Boris Announces New NHS Visa

ON Day 3 of the Conservative Campaign In the East Midlands, the Prime Minister is pledging a new ‘NHS visa’ to make it easier for doctors and nurses from around world to work here in Britain.

NHS workers will also get extra points under a new Australian style immigration system.

Medical bodies have welcomed the news but say should go further.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock told TBG - “From it’s inception the NHS has recruited globally.”

“This new visa will make it easier for us to hire the finest doctors and nurses from other nations to come and work in the NHS so that patients can receive the best possible care."

Tories Want Investigation Into Remain Alliance

Remember our stories over the last two days as regards the Remain Alliance?

Well, the Telegraph are reporting that the Conservatives have called on electoral watchdogs to investigate a Remain pact in 60 constituencies where Liberal Democrats will work with the Greens and Welsh nationalists to keep out Tories and Labour.

The pact, brokered by campaign group Unite to Remain, will see Lib Dem candidates get a clear run in 43 seats where the Green Party or Welsh nationalists will stand down in a bid to boost the number of Remainer MPs and block Brexit.

Richard Tice To Stand For Brexit Party In Hartlepool

RICHARD Tice has just announced he will be standing as The Brexit Party candidate for Hartlepool, TBG can sensationally reveal.

Tice, who was linked with a move to the Conservatives told TBG - “Delighted to announce that I’ll be standing as the Brexit Party’s candidate for Hartlepool.”

“I have a track record of getting things done and know I can deliver for the town.”

“I’ll battle for a proper Brexit, more money into Hartlepool and more jobs for the people here.”

Remain Alliance Formed In Portsmouth South As Greens Stand Down

AS part of the Unite to Remain Campaign that TBG scooped on via our Facebook page last night, the Green Party have today sensationally pulled out of the contest for Portsmouth South, TBG can reveal .

Gerald Vernon Jackson couldn’t control his glee at the news on Twitter earlier.

However, it’s provided a huge headache for Tory candidate Donna Jones who has begged the Brexit Party to pull out so as she can have a clear run too.

The 60 seats where the Remain Alliance have just gone LIVE HERE.

Ex Labour MP Labels Corbyn An Extremist And Tells Supporters To Vote Boris

TBG finished off last night by promising more Labour moderates were off today and we are delighted to say that as we reported on Facebook earlier, Labour hasn’t let us down

TBG can sensationally reveal that the former Labour MP Ian Austin is the first of the moderates to announce he is standing down at the general election.

Stay tuned to our Facebook page for the rest as the stories break.

Austin urged voters to follow him in backing the Conservatives.

Austin tells today’s Times that Jeremy Corbyn is “completely unfit” to be prime minister.

He said that - “voting for anybody other than Boris Johnson risks Corbyn getting into No 10 and I think that would be a disaster for Britain.”

“Jeremy Corbyn is an extremist,”
he said.

“He’s allowed the Labour Party to be poisoned by extremism and racism, he supported terrorism, he can’t be trusted with our defence and he always picks the wrong side.”

“To lead our country you’ve got to be able to say you love Britain and I do not think he is a patriot.”

“He has sided with our country’s enemies, whether that’s supporting the IRA or saying Hamas and Hezbollah are his friends.”

Round Up Of The Day: Labour In Turmoil

If you have been following our Facebook feed from TBG Towers throughout the day and thought the Tories were having a bad day then tonight you might think twice about it.

Because a potential civil war has erupted inside Labour.

It came as Tom Watson dropped the ultimate campaign bombshell of announcing not just that he’s quitting as Deputy Leader next month but quitting politics altogether.

In short, Watson said “After 35 years in full-time politics I've decided to step down and will be campaigning to overcome the Tory-fuelled public health crisis.”

“I'm as committed to Labour as ever.”

“I will spend this election fighting for brilliant Labour candidates and a better future for our country.”
And just to rub the salt in the wounds, tonight former Labour MP Chris Williamson announced he’s off too.

Except that’s he’s going to stand against the official Labour Candidate in Derby North first!

Labour’s troubles actually started this morning when, shortly after Jon Lansman got selected to stand in Luton North, they pulled out their Remainer candidate in Leave voting Bassetlaw.

Sally Gimson has been accused of “inappropriate behaviour in a Labour Party meeting” after being selected just a week ago to replace John Mann.

TBG understands that the real reason allegedly is that Sally Gimson has been forced out to make way for a left wing candidate to keep Momentum happy.

One Labour source told TBG “You get dropped for being rowdy in meetings, but not for being a racist or an anti Semite it seems.”

The polls haven’t got much better for Labour either.

A new Ipsos MORI poll gives the Conservatives a seventeen point lead whilst a You Gov poll taken after the Jacob Rees Mogg fiasco shows them still eleven points in front.

The reason for the lead holding up?

Well, Ipsos Mori also found that a huge 75% of the people questioned are dissatisfied with him Jeremy Corbyn and just 15% are satisfied.

And all that before even more Labour moderates are expected to throw in the towel tomorrow.

EXCLUSIVE: Tory On The Chicken Run

TORY Mims Davies, who stood down in a top Lib Dem’s target seat just days ago, is now on the short list for a safe Tory seat, TBG can sensationally reveal.

Mims Davies stood down as MP for Eastleigh just after midnight.

The full Shortlist out for Mid Sussex is:

Virginia Crosbie
Mims Davies
Henry Newman

Ironically, Nicholas Soames did a chicken run to Mid Sussex from Crawley in 1997.

Labour Sack Bassetlaw Candidate

LABOUR have just sacked their Remainer candidate in Leave voting Bassetlaw, TBG can sensationally reveal.

Sally Gimson has been accused of “inappropriate behaviour in a Labour Party meeting”.

She was selected just a week ago to replace John Mann.

The accusation is that she has been forced out to make way for a more left wing and Leave supporting candidate.

A Labour source told TBG - "You can get dropped for being rowdy in a meeting bit for for being a racist it seems"

Boris Launches Election 2019

Boris Johnson has dissolved Parliament and launched the Conservatives General Election Campaign

Boris says if he gets a working majority he will get parliament working again.

He pledged on day one that he will start getting his Brexit deal through so that it happens by January 31st.

The PM said come with us who want Britain to stand tall in the world, or choose Corbyn who sided with Putin when Russia launched a chemical attack on our shores.

Boris said it’s parliament’s fault Brexit isn’t done, it’s MPs’ fault there’s another delay and that he’s been forced to hold this election.

Essentially, vote for me and I’ll sort it out and get on to the good stuff.

TBG thinks it’s definitely a parliament verses the people election and Boris is on the people’s side.

Welsh Sec Alun Cairns Quits Over Rape Trial

UK cabinet minister Alun Cairns has quit after claims he knew about a former aide's role in the "sabotage" of a rape trial.

Alun Cairns is still prospective Conservative candidate for Vale of Glamorgan though.

The Conservative majority over Labour in 2017 was just 4% and is already regarded as highly marginal.

Lib Dems Bragging At New Poll Lead

PORTSMOUTH Lib Dems wasted no time in spreading their good poll news.

This morning this advert has appeared in the Portsmouth News.

It trumpets Gerald Vernon Jackson as a hard working council leader and “Armed Forces Champion.”

The news comes after TBG sensationally revealed on its Facebook feed last night that the Brexit Party candidate has pulled out following Tory candidate Donna Jones tweeting Nigel Farage begging him to stand down.

Lib Dems Legal Threat to ITV

TBG can sensationally reveal that the Lib Dems are giving ITV until Thursday 5pm to include Jo Swinson in its election date in what appears a letter before action.

Brexit Party Candidate Joins Conservatives

Brexit Party candidate for Dudley South Paul Brothwood has quit the party and endorsed Conservative MP Mike Wood.

The ex-UKIP councillor says he fears votes for the Brexit Party could help to elect a Labour-Lib Dem government.

Brexit Party Deputy Offered Safe Tory Seat

THERE'S a big rumour doing the rounds this morning that Richard Tice was offered a safe Tory seat if he jumped ship from the Brexit Part, TBG can sensationally reveal.

Rumour is he was offered Melton Mowbray, where Alan Duncan is standing down.

ERG boss Steve Baker tells Twitter, “I've always believed that Richard Tice would make a great Conservative MP.”

“Easily at minister of state level already.”

Last week Tice told Sky News that his only objection to Boris's deal was the "potential length if the transition period."

Tory Brexiteers Go On Attack

TBG can sensationally reveal that a huge row has broken out at the heart of Brexit.

It’s between Tory MP Steve Baker and Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage.

With Farage set to announce 500 candidates for the General Election today, Wycombe MP Baker accused Farage of “setting out” to create a “weak and indecisive” hung Parliament.

Baker told the Telegraph, “Nigel Farage’s critique [of the Brexit deal] is wrong.”

“Whilst there are some compromises people like me have to swallow, Boris’s deal is a path to a great future.”

“But we will not succeed if Nigel Farage creates a hung parliament by dogmatically pursuing purity.”

Farage had earlier told Andrew Marr: “If Boris was going for a genuine Brexit, then we wouldn’t need to fight him in this election.”

The row broke out after Tory brexiteer Mark Francois told LBC that Farage is putting Brexit at risk and has lost the plot adding, "Even Bill Cash supports the deal!"

Tories to Give Workers £460 National Insurance Tax Cut

THE Conservatives are planning to raise the national insurance threshold if they retain power.

They plan to raise it from £8,632 to £12,500 per year.

The idea was first raised by Dominic Raab when he stood in the Conservatives Leadership Contest.

Such a move would save the average worker £460.

The move would leave 2.4 million fewer workers paying the levy.

Boris Johnson told TBG - “I think we should be looking at lifting people on low incomes out of tax, lifting the thresholds for national insurance and I would remind you that that’s where my priority is."

“When I was Mayor of London we led the way, for instance with the London living wage and I think lifting NI contribution thresholds would be another good thing to do."

Lib Dems Won't Stand Against Soubry

TBG can sensationally reveal that the Lib Dems have pulled out of Broxtowe too this morning.

Decision was apparently made at a national level and has caused a stir.

Once again though, the Greens ARE contesting the seat.

An official announcement about more pro-Remain pacts is expected in the coming days.

TBG understands that Dominic Grieve’s Beaconsfield constituency is also been under consideration.

Mark Lancaster Standing Down

A sensational 59th MP has today announced he is standing down at the General Election

After almost 15 years as MP in Milton Keynes North, Mark Lancaster is off.

He was elected in 2005 and had a majority of 1,915 in 2017.

Lancaster said on his web site - “It has been the greatest honour of my life to have served as the Member of Parliament for Milton Keynes North for nearly 15 years.”

“Like so many others I have fallen in love, not only with the place but the wonderful people, from all walks of life, that make Milton Keynes one of the best places to live, work and play in our great country.”

“However - after much soul searching and deliberation, I have decided that now is the time for me to stand down.”

“This has not been an easy decision, but all good things come to an end.”

“Whilst I would have dearly loved to have seen my constituents wishes delivered and Brexit finally secured on my watch, an early General Election has brought me to the conclusion that, after 15 years, now is the right time to seek new challenges.”

“It is time for somebody else to pick up the baton.“

Sandbach Causing Trouble In Lib Dem’s Already

AFTER spending the last two years causing chaos in the Conservatives Antoniette Sandbach is now causing chaos in the Lib Dem’s instead by failing to back their revoke policy amid fears of a growing internal schism on the issue, TBG can sensationally reveal.

When questioned on whether she supported revoking Article 50 if her party came to power, she said her new party would have to “win a majority” to do so and insisted her preferred outcome was still a confirmatory referendum.

She told Saturday’s Telegraph, “I think what’s being offered now in the deal is so far from what was promised that we should go back and check that this is really what Britain wants.”

A Lib Dem source warned that there was a “sense of uneasiness” about cancelling Brexit among some candidates.

“Many will be leading with the People’s Vote message on the doorstop,” they said.

Former MP Norman Lamb is also uneasy.

He thinks that proposing to cancel Brexit without a referendum would leave half the country "angry and feeling that the social contract has been broken.”

Electoral Pact on Isle of Wight

THE second pact of the 2019 General Election is about to be done, TBG can sensationally reveal.

It’s on the Isle of Wight where Bob Seely currently has a majority of 21,069.

Labour finished second then, the Greens third with the Lib Dem’s a distant fourth.

This time though the Lib Dem’s are sensationally pulling out to let the Greens have a clear run.

A statement sent to Lib Dem’s members last night and leaked to TBG said this:

“We will not be standing in this General Election on the Island.”

“The Liberal Democrats nationally have decided that a electoral alliance with the Greens to maximise the remain vote is the best cause of action on the Isle of Wight.”

“I am disappointed that you and other Islanders will not get the chance to vote for the Liberal Democrats given our unique policies and I realise that many of you will be unhappy about the lack of choice but I would urge you to recognise the critical issue of Brexit and know that our small step back will help other Liberal Democrat candidates around the UK.”

“We hope you can respect what has been a deeply difficult decision taken by the local and national party.”

“In 18 months everyone will have a chance to vote for a Liberal Democrat Council and I would ask you to attend the meeting on the 6th November, make your voice heard and help us build towards a renewed Liberal Democrat Island.”

It’s understood that local members are to instead sent to help Portsmouth South candidate Gerald Vernon Jackson in the four way marginal seat of Portsmouth South.

Farage Throws Down The Gauntlet

TBG always knew that there was going to be a catch to the story we ran yesterday. Now we know what it is

AT the Brexit Party General Election Campaign launch this morning Nigel Farage said “the real deal is a LEAVE alliance.”

He urged Boris Johnson to reconsider the terms of the deal itself, likening Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal to a car that has “a shiny bonnet but a rubbish motor.”

Under the new slogan “Drop the Deal” Nigel Farage says that if Boris Johnson will drop the deal and go for a Canada style free trade deal then he would back an alliance with the Tories.

But will he take the plunge and stand for Parliament himself?

Well, as things NOW stand, Nigel Farage says the Brexit Party will contest every seat in England, Wales and Scotland with 500 candidates lined up and ready to go on Monday.

Mr Farage said there may be seats where they won't compete against those willing to leave on a free trade deal or WTO terms.

He said they have until November 14 to decide.

Farage says there are 150 Labour seats that the Conservatives can't win but could form “a non aggression pact.”

He said that, “Boris Johnson's deal is not Brexit.”

“It is a bad old treaty and simply not Brexit.”

“It is can kicking for three years.”

“We are committing to negotiating for up to 3 years in line with the political declaration.”

“Thus meaning we are aiming for regulatory alignment.”

“Monsieur Barnier is rather more brilliant at negotiating than our side.”

As a result, the Brexit Party will be taking on the Tories in target seats including Portsmouth North, Portsmouth South and Chichester.

Mr Farage also says he sees a number of Labour seats as “top targets” allegedly including that of Yvette Cooper.

The Brexit Party will consider on a local basis, not campaigning against “friends.”

This means sitting MPs who publicly renounce Boris Johnson’s Withdrawal Agreement.

Mr Farage said Donald Trump is a “fan” of Boris Johnson but says the President is no fan of the government’s Brexit deal.

The Conservatives have reacted to Mr Farage.

A Downing Street spokesman told TBG - “A vote for Nigel Farage risks letting Jeremy Corbyn into Downing Street via the back door and the country spending 2020 having two referendums on Brexit and Scottish independence.”

“It will not get Brexit done.”

“It will create another gridlocked Parliament that does not work.”

Even so, Mr Farage says they’ve already been approached to make informal arrangements with candidates who want a “clean break Brexit.”

A Labour source told TBG there are 30 to 40 seats where they believe the Brexit Party standing could split the pro-Brexit vote and give Labour a better chance of winning.

They include Lincoln, Great Grimsby, Wakefield, Don Valley, Portsmouth North and Portsmouth South.

One Cabinet minister reckons the Brexit Party actually might help them win some seats because they take voters who would never vote Tory from the Labour Party anyway.

Sandbach Joins The Lib Dems

ANTOINETTE Sandbach has joined the Lib Dems, TBG can sensationally reveal.

The Liberal Democrats have announced the MP for Eddisbury and former Conservative will contest her seat as the Liberal Democrat candidate in the coming General Election.

She said she was “excited and liberated” to join the Lib Dem’s.

She accused the Government of going towards a “head long no deal” saying it was the “final straw.”

“I’m standing as a Liberal Democrat because of the values of the party.”

“I could have chosen to stand as an independent but I want to stand for a progressive centre-ground liberal party.”

“And I see the two main parties being stuck in the past and floating off to two extremes.”

“The Liberal Democrats reflect my values.”

“The polarisation over Brexit has led to a change in the way that we act.”

“We used to have a reputation for being polite and listening to each other with respect.”

“I think it’s a shame that that has been lost.”

Trump: Bad Terrible Things Will Happen Under Corbyn

DONALD Trump sensationally intervened in the UK General Election less than 24 hours after it was confirmed.

In a sensational interview with LBC hours before the Brexit Party declare their intentions for the General Election campaign, President Trump said that Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage should combine and become an “unstoppable force” to prevent Jeremy Corbyn taking Britain to “bad places.”

The US President said the Prime Minister and the Brexit Party leader would make a “terrific” team if they could agree a pact before the general election.

In an interview on Mr Farage’s radio show, Mr Trump said: “I wish you two guys could get together”

“I think it would be a great thing.”

“You would really have some numbers because you did fantastically in the last election.”

Trump’s intervention forced Downing Street to issue a statement and Jeremy Corbyn to jump on the bandwagon.

Mr Farage’s half-hour LBC radio interview with Mr Trump was timed to coincide with the Brexit Party’s election launch tomorrow, at which Mr Farage will reveal how many candidates he is fielding, his strategy and whether he will himself stand to be an MP.

TBG understands that as things stand the Brexit Party intend to field 27 candidates in Labour stronghold seats with Yvette Cooper their top target.

Mr Farage once again offered Mr Johnson an electoral pact, saying he would be “right behind him” if he switched to a no-deal Brexit.

The Prime Minister has repeatedly insisted there will be no deals with the Brexit Party.

Turning to the Labour leader the US president added: "Corbyn would be so bad for your country, he'd be so bad, he'd take you in such a bad way.

"He'd take you into such bad places. But your country has tremendous potential, it's a great country."

Boris In Bury Boosting Schools

BORIS Johnson has today travelled on to the Abbots Green Primary Academy in Bury St Edmunds.

The PM joined a reception class where he told the children “be careful with fireworks” and said that “animals don’t like them.”

Boris then joined a Year 2 class who were doing a project on London, past and present.

At one stage he was shown a picture and quipped “that was when Ken Livingstone was in charge, before a time of considerable improvements.”
