NO MR NIGE GUY

NIGEL Farage has accused the Tories of 'dirty tricks' and threatened to call the police over claims a number of his Brexit Party candidates were offered peerages and top jobs to withdraw from next month's election at the last minute.

The row comes as the parties' candidate lists were finally announced with polling day now less than four weeks away.

    BROADBAND FOR ALL

    Labour has promised to give every home and business in the UK free full-fibre broadband by 2030, if they win the keys to No10.

    The party plans to nationalise part of BY and introduce a tax on the tech giants to cover the enormous £20bn cost.

    Shadow chancellor John McDonnell told the BBC: “It's visionary I accept that, but other countries are having these visions and we're not.”

    FARAGE HITS BACK

    Nigel Farage has threatened to report the Conservative Party to police after he accused No10 of sabotage.

    It comes after two Brexit Party candidates abandoned their fight for the election.

    The Brexit Party leader accused Boris Johnson of offering his MP hopefuls peerages and Government jobs in exchange for standing down.

    No10 sources hae rubbished the claims as “b******s”.

    It comes after Rupert Lowe, who was hoping to stand for Dudley North and Andy Wood, due to fight for Hove, pulled out of the race just before the 4pm nomination deadline.

    Their late move means that Mr Farage is now not allowed to replace them in time.

    CORBYN DANGER

    Joanna Lumley is among 24 stars and figures to warn that electing the Labour leader would mean giving up the fight against anti-Semitism.

    The bombshell letter, which was published in The Guardian, reads: ” To ignore it [anti-Semitism] because Brexit looms larger is to declare that anti-Jewish prejudice is a price worth paying for a Labour government. Which other community’s concerns are disposable in this way? Who would be next?

    “Opposition to racism cannot include surrender in the fight against anti-Semitism.

    “Yet that is what it would mean to back Labour and endorse Mr Corbyn for Downing Street.”

    It does not go on to endorse any other parties.
