Brexit will be ‘decided’ if voters back Conservatives, says Boris Johnson
In his own final message to voters, Boris Johnson told a rally that the country can enjoy Christmas dinner knowing Brexit is “decided” if voters elect a majority Conservative government.
But he warned that the general election remains on a “knife edge”, adding: “Today is our chance to unite as a country and put the uncertainty to bed so people can get on with their lives.
“Just imagine how wonderful it will be to settle down to a turkey dinner this Christmas with Brexit decided – and how awful it would be if Corbyn and Sturgeon were in Downing Street advancing their plans for two more referendums.
“Let’s stop the chaos and stop the referendums. We can secure a majority Conservative government if we win just nine more seats.”
The former London mayor said he had a “simple message” for voters – including those who had never ticked the box next to a Tory candidate’s name on the ballot paper before.
“Give me a majority and I will finish what we started – what you instructed us to do – three and a half years ago,” he said.
