Tories go on hiring spree as they ramp up preparations for General Election after Brexit


    THE Tories are plotting a hiring spree as they ramp up preparations for a General Election.

    Conservative associations have fired out a slew of job adverts on Twitter as Boris Johnson gears up to battle Jeremy Corbyn after Brexit.

    The vacancies have been posted in the past five days and include campaign manager roles for constituencies across the country.

    Seven ads have been posted by the Tories so far with some offering salaries of up to £27,500, reports Guido Fawkes.


    The PM has been on a policy spending spree since he came to No10, announcing funding for the NHS and police as well pledging to clamp down on crime.

    A boost in popularity, dubbed the Boris Bounce, has seen the Tories storm in front of the Brexit Party, a recent poll revealed.

    ComRes polling for the Daily Telegraph showed that the Tories are on 31 per cent, with the Brexit Party trailing behind in 16 per cent beside the Lib Dems.

    Labour are behind on 27 per cent.

    Among Leave voters Boris’ party leads with 46 per cent of the vote.


    Boris has denied he is preparing for an election stating it is “the last thing” he wants before delivering Brexit.

    While shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott said Labour is in talks with the Lib Dems and SNP to oust Johnson with a no confidence vote.

    But he plans to ignore any potential challenge by Tory rebels and Remainer MPs to ensure he pushes through our divorce from the EU by the deadline of October 31.

    However, John Bercow last night vowed to refuse to let Boris take Britain out of the EU by suspending Parliament.

    The Commons Speaker said he would fight any attempt to prorogue Parliament with “every bone in my body”.

    While Boris denies his election plans – he has been carrying out a policy blitz with high profile promises to woo voters.

    On Wednesday the PM announced a £2.5billion splurge on popular new crime-fighting initiatives, that also include toughening up sentencing and 10,000 more prison places.

    Boris visited Leeds prison, where he said: “We cannot allow our prisons to become factories for making bad people worse.

    “We will stop the drugs, weapons and the mobile phones coming in, so we can safeguard victims, protect staff, cut violence and make our prisons properly equipped to reform and rehabilitate.”

    Earlier this week Bo-Jo pledged £1.8bn to the NHS – including 20 hospitals earmarked for improvements.

    The cash would go towards providing new beds, cutting-edge equipment and building repairs.

    Johnson also said he wanted more Bobbies on the beat and plans to recruit 20,000 more police officers in a move that will cost £1billion over three years in a nationwide programme.
