Boris Johnson 'most unfit individual to ever enter Downing Street'

David MacMillan

BBC Tees

Just spoken to Labour’s shadow transport secretary Andy McDonald.

He says a Conservative majority "fills him with dread".

He says austerity will carry on at pace and "all the deprivations that go with it".

He adds Boris Johnson is “the most unfit individual to ever enter Downing Street".

He says the reasons for Labour’s defeat are complex but the Conservative's simple message on Brexit got through, aided by the focus on it in some parts of the media, to the exclusion of other issues.
