Q: Hi Boris, you alright? PM: I’m good, how are you? Q: What’s been on your mind today? PM: Well, I can’t hide it from you, I’ve been thinking a bit about this general election campaign. Q: How do you typically start your day? PM: I tend to get up pretty early and then I go down and take the dog for a walk, and dog does his business and so on and so forth,
that’s my start to the day. Q: What’s the most surprising thing you’ve found about being PM? PM: I was pretty incredulous the other day when I found out I couldn’t actually get a Thai curry to deliver to Number 10 because of the security problems, the security is too tight. Q: And on that subject, fish and chips or a Sunday roast? PM: I think fish and chips on a cold night on a beach, you can’t beat it. Q: Why are we having this election? PM: We’re having this election because basically the whole political system is paralysed, and we have a fantastic Brexit deal that we did, nobody said we could do it, but we did, and then parliament refused to knock it through. So we’re stuck in the EU when the people voted to leave, so we need to have an election. Q: This one divides opinion, but Marmite, yes or no? PM: Marmite? Yes. Q:: What do you think are the biggest challenges facing our country? PM: Look, this is an amazing country. It’s going gangbusters in so many ways. We lead the world in so many technologies, but our political system is blocked at the moment. And that’s the thing that we need to address, we need to get a new government, a new majority government, and I hope a Conservative government, and move this thing on. Q:Now, I know you’re a very busy man, but when did when was the last time you cooked and what did you make? PM: The last time I cooked was last night and I made steak and oven chips, which were very good. Q: What’s your favourite band? PM: Look, this is either The Clash or it’s the Rolling Stones. and mainly I listen to the Rolling Stones nowadays, so you can make of that what you will. Q: What would you say to someone who’s wondering who to vote for at this election? PM: I would say it is a very, very simple choice. You can either go with Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party and be in no doubt that if you vote for any other of the minor parties, you will end up with a coalition of chaos with Jeremy Corbyn at the lead, at the head. And that will not only be an economic catastrophe for this country, it will also be a political disaster because their program, would you believe it, is for another Brexit referendum, another referendum next year, spend the whole of the next year in a referendum on Brexit, a referendum on Scotland, to say nothing of the economic catastrophe involved in a Corbyn-led, socialist, semi-Marxist Labour government? Or you can go with us, get Brexit done with our deal, which is ready to go, oven-ready, slam it in the microwave, it’s there. Get it done in days and take the country forward. We’re investing massively in the NHS, the biggest investment for a generation, massively in schools, in policing, 20,000 police we’re putting out on the streets of this country. We’re going to be doing a huge infrastructure revolution for the whole of the UK, gigabit broadband across the whole of the UK, and we can pay for all that because we’re the party that understands the importance of a dynamic market economy. So that’s my message, vote for us, vote for a compassionate, One Nation Conservative government that understands the symmetry between a free market economy and great, great public services. Let’s get Brexit done and unleash the potential of this whole country. See you later.
