General Election LIVE: Boris Johnson on whistle-stop tour of UK after Labours Tom Watson quits


BORIS Johnson will go on a whistle-stop tour of the UK today as the campaign turns to the economy.

The PM will visit Northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland as the Chancellor Sajid Javid and Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell battle it out over who is best to run the country’s finances – and who will control the money in your pocket.

It comes just hours after the huge news that Labour’s Tom Watson is quitting politics – as an MP and the party’s deputy leader.
