Johnson has tried to focus minds on the potential of an uncertain result and a divided Parliament, which would endanger his plan to lead the U.K. out of the European Union on Jan. 31. He started his day by helping load milk and orange juice bottles onto a delivery vehicle in West Yorkshire.
“This could not be more critical, it could not be tighter — I just say to everybody the risk is very real that we could tomorrow be going into another hung parliament,'' he said. ”That's more drift, more dither, more delay, more paralysis for this country."
Meanwhile, the main opposition Labour Party said the narrowing in the polls showed that momentum was moving in their direction. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn campaigned in Scotland and urged people to elect a government that will “give real hope."
“In this city of Glasgow, which has some of the poorest people in this country, which has wards which contain the lowest life expectancy all across this country, they need an end to austerity,'' Corbyn said. “They need a U.K. government that will invest all across the country."
