Boris Johnson begs voters to avoid ‘nightmare’ Labour government as he heads to polling station

Boris Johnson has pleaded with voters to avoid the “nightmare prospect” of a Labour government in a video recorded on his way to the polling station.

Encouraging the public to vote Conservative, the former prime minister told the camera: “[There’ll be] more wokery, more illegal immigration, more pointless, powerless kowtowing to Brussels and of course, ever-higher taxation.”

Just days ago, Mr Johnson joined Rishi Sunak on the final leg of his campaign trail in a bid to avoid a “supermajority” from Keir Starmer’s Labour.
