All Conservative election candidates pledge to back my Brexit deal

Sink or swim Boris Johnson visited flood-hit regions but was accused by residents of showing up too late

Former Tory shadow home secretary Ann Widdecombe spoke on LBC yesterday to reveal that she was prepared to "swear on the Bible" that she had been offered a role in the next phase of Brexit allegations.

He said when that failed, people working "deep inside Number 10" had tried to bypass him, going directly to senior Brexit Party figures and suggesting eight of them could be made peers if they could persuade him to withdraw more of his candidates.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that all Conservative Party candidates in the December 12 election have pledged to back his Brexit deal, opening the door to getting the agreement passed through parliament if the party were to win a majority.

The letter, responding to the news that the police are assessing an electoral fraud and malpractice claim into No 10 offering Brexit Party members peerages, goes on to say an independent internal inquiry "would be an opportunity to show the party has nothing to hide".

Asked about the Conservative Party's denials, and whether his comments amount to him saying the Tories are lying when they deny the claims, Mr Habib said: "I'm saying they're being economical with the truth for sure".

"Both allegations are now being assessed", it said in a statement, noting its special enquiry team is responsible for investigating such cases.

London's Metropolitan police say they are investigating allegations that Brexit Party candidates were offered jobs or peerages if they would agree not to run against Conservative candidates in next month's election. "Both allegations are now being assessed", the force said.

The Brexit Party leader is in the city on Monday to film a BBC Question Time special where he will answer questions from the audience, then the following day he will be at the Great Northern Hotel next to the station.

"I can't imagine for a second that this is true", he said of Widdecombe's accusation.

Labour party chairman Ian Lavery also called for an investigation, saying: "This could be political corruption of the highest order and, in addition to that, it could be seen as criminal activity". "With the Conservatives in the pocket of Nigel Farage, and Jeremy Corbyn stuck in the 1970s, we are the only ones standing up for you".

Mr Lewis informed Sky's Ridge on Sunday right this moment: 'No-one has been provided jobs or something like that.

A separate poll for SavantaComRes also said support for Johnson's Conservatives was the highest since 2017 with his party on 41 per cent with Labour on 33 per cent.

The Liberal Democrat President, Sal Brinton, has also urged the Conservatives to "cooperate fully with the police so they can clarify these allegations".

Suspicions that individual Brexit Party candidates were coming under pressure to stand aside were heightened after the prospective candidate for Dudley North announced he would not be running.
