Boris Up North

BORIS Johnson was in Sunderland today making a pitch for votes.

He said: “I will make sure Sunderland’s voice will be heard in the corridors of Westminster and Whitehall like never before.”

“We will give Sunderland and the rest of the north the investment it deserves.”

The PM's next call was Sunderland where the former Labour MP Gisela Stuart was out backing him again.

Sunderland was the first city to indicate Britain was heading for Brexit in 2016.
