Frankly, I am sick about the antisemtic, pro-jihad turn the UK took. I don’t understand how Jews can stay in England. They must flee because with or without Corbyn, because the Labour (and its Jew hatred) are not going away.

- Fifteen former Labour MPs took out an advert in newspapers across the north of England urging voters not to back Corbyn.
- The Prime Minister’s press secretary was embroiled in a row for swearing at a Good Morning Britain reporter asking for an interview. Shortly afterwards, Johnson appeared to take refuge in a fridge.

The analysis A fridge too far
We are coming to the end of the last proper day of campaigning in this election. Tomorrow the broadcasters won’t be able to show anything more that clips of people voting, while us print hacks will be writing about how ‘turnout is brisk’. It’s been an odd final day, in keeping with this odd week. The most striking thing about it – besides Boris Johnson apparently hiding in a fridge – has been how reluctant the two main party leaders have been to do the traditional eve-of-poll broadcast interviews. Neither Johnson nor Jeremy Corbyn went up to do the Today programme this morning, preferring instead to focus on campaign activities. Good Morning Britain, which has been trying valiantly to get an interview with the Prime Minister for months now, went along to Johnson’s morning session to ask him once more. Johnson and his aides gave GMB more than they could ever have hoped for, with his press secretary Rob Oxley swearing at the (live) camera, before Johnson solemnly walked into a fridge. The Conservatives have since clarified that he wasn’t hiding in the fridge, but was going in there for a briefing before he started delivering milk to voters.
Either way, Johnson’s last few days of campaigning have not gone well, not just in terms of visuals, but also in terms of results. If YouGov’s latest and last MRP before the election is anything to go by, the Conservatives have been losing support as the campaign has progressed. Last night’s ‘nowcast’ found a narrowing of the party’s lead, with Johnson now predicted to win a majority of 28. A majority is a majority, and given the election started with no one really knowing what might happen, the Tories won’t argue with that. But of course there’s the possibility – acknowledged by YouGov – that we could actually be in hung parliament territory if there is a snowballing effect from the figures they’ve produced. We had a meaty discussion of what the MRP means with YouGov’s Marcus Roberts and James on today’s Coffee House Shots podcast.
James points out on Coffee House that it is no surprise this election is going down to the wire, when you consider what’s at stake. But tomorrow will tell us if Johnson has successfully realigned British politics or if this country is still stuck, with no party able to win outright. Turnout might be brisk tomorrow, but there’s still a chance our politics could remain sluggish for a good while longer.
