By Crimson Tazvinzwa///Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s maiden election campaign in dissaray after it emerges a minister in his cabinet used a fake video to discredit his opponent.

Mr Boris Johnson’s election campaign launch marred by the resignation of one of his ministers, a gaffe about the victims of a deadly blaze at Grenfeel Tower in London and a doctored video of an opponent released by his party.

 

The PM  called for a snap December 12 general election in a bid to ‘break the Brexit deadlock’ that he says has paralysed Britain for more than three years.

Conservative Party Chairman James Cleverly spent whole Wednesday defending distributing a doctored video clip of a rival Labour Party politician instead of touting Johnson’s election campaign launch.
