Liberal Democrat Leader, Jo Swinson, has today written to Boris Johnson asking him to publicly reject the endorsement of his campaign by Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, also known as Tommy Robinson.
Jo Swinson said:
“Tommy Robinson spreads hate and division, poisoning our communities by setting people against each other.
“The fact that Tommy Robinson backs Boris Johnson tells you everything you need to know about today's Conservative party.
“If you want to stop the Conservatives, stop Brexit and stop Tommy Robinson's preferred candidate for Prime Minister, then vote for the Liberal Democrats.”
