Boris Johnson news: General Election email revealed from Tory MP Damien Hinds’ Instagram a | UK | News

Since taking over as Prime Minister, Mr Johnson has repeatedly refused to announce a general election before the proposed October 31 Brexit date. Contradicting those assurances, however, Tory Mp Damien Hinds recently revealed an email with the subject line, “GE2019 team thoughts…”. Mr Hinds, who was Education Secretary up until last month accidentally showed the email on his Instagram page.

Within the email, the first line can be read and says, “Hi all I hope this isn’t unhelpful at this point (!) but I had had in mind that…”.

Following the revelation, the email was later deleted amid the anticipation that Mr Johnson will indeed bring a vote to the public.

Despite the leaked email, Mr Hinds said that the email was a mere “techno snafu” and said that there was “nothing to see here”.

Some in the political sphere, have hit out Mr Johnson’s recent pledges on crime, the NHS and police numbers as merely being announcements to win over the public.

Within his pledges, Mr Johnson has promised to spend £100million to improve security and cut crime.

The new Prime Minister has also promised a programme to create 10,000 additional prison spaces.

Moreover, in order to tackle the falling number of police in the UK, Mr Johnson has also pledged to hire an extra 20,000 police officers by 2022.

While on a recent trip to a prison in Leeds, the Prime Minister promised to tackle crime in the UK.

He added: “I don’t want to see prisons just be factories to turn bad people worse. We need to be making sure that they are educated and there’s not a culture of gangsterism and drugs in the prison system.

Mr Johnson also insisted that he thought jails were in fact, “factories for making bad people worse”.

When asked recently on whether he could guarantee that there would be not election before the end of October, Mr Johnson was adamant.

He added: “The British people voted in 2015, in 2016, in 2017.

“What they want us to do is deliver on their mandate, come out of the EU on 31 October.”
