Dominic Cummings warns General Election will be ‘tight’
Boris Johnson’s top adviser Dominic Cummings has warned Brexit supporters that the General Election is “much tighter” than the opinion polls suggest.
Despite the polls consistently giving a clear lead to the Tories, he said there was “a very real possibility” of another hung parliament on December 12.
He said that voting for Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party in key Conservative target seats in the Midlands and the North of England risked handing victory to Labour.
Writing on his blog, Mr Cummings – who is credited with masterminding the successful Vote Leave campaign in the 2016 referendum – said if there is no Tory majority, the other parties would combine to stop Britain leaving the EU.
He said Labour and the SNP would combine to “cheat” a second referendum by giving the vote to EU nationals in order to secure a Remain vote.
“You will see many polls in the coming days. Some will say Boris will win,” he wrote.
“Trust me, as someone who has worked on lots of campaigns, things are MUCH tighter than they seem and there is a very real possibility of a hung parliament.
“Without a majority, the nightmare continues. ALL other MPs will gang together to stop Brexit and give EU citizens the vote. It’s that simple.”
