Ahead of the United Kingdom's elections, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has shared a video of himself delivering groceries to residents of Leeds.
In the video (which was shared by the prime minister on Twitter on Wednesday, 11 December), Johnson told voters they would get more if they voted for his party.
“Good morning folks! Up early delivering groceries in Leeds – and we’ll deliver more if you vote Conservative tomorrow,” he tweeted.
Johnson had in October called for an election to end months of a political impasse over the UK’s bid to exit the European Union.
Itt was previously reported that a Brexit deal was agreed upon between the UK and the EU team at a meeting of European leaders in Brussels on Thursday, 17 October.
The UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted to confirm the development, saying: “We’ve got a great new deal that takes back control.”
It was also reported that British members of parliament (MPs) overwhelmingly voted to reject previous prime minister Theresa May's Brexit deal.
The Brexit deal was rejected by 230 votes, the largest defeat for a sitting government in history. The deal - which sets out the terms of Britain's exit from the European Union (EU) on March 29 - was rejected by the MPs with a margin of 432 votes to 202.
Subsequently, a vote of no confidence in the government - which could lead to a general election - was tabled by Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn.
