In a speech outside Number 10, the prime minister said if his party wins the election they will stop the "paralysis" in Parliament and deliver Brexit in January. Mr Johnson also slammed his Labour rivals, saying theta victory would lead to a "horror show" of further Brexit delay. Mr Johnson confirmed he met the Queen at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday morning, marking the official start of the election period. Mr Johnson, who only called the election eight days ago, claimed that he "doesn't want a general election", saying "no one wants to have a general election in December". He continued: "However, we've got to the stage where we have no choice because our parliament is paralysed, it's been stuck in a rut for three and a half years.
