#Johnson sets out immigration plans as Conservatives hit two-year poll high

Setting out their post-Brexit immigration policy, the Conservatives said they would treat European Union and non-EU migrants the same from January 2021, including a five-year wait to obtain welfare payments and a surcharge to access health services.

A United Kingdom police watchdog is investigating claims that Johnson gave special treatment to Arcuri while he was mayor of London between 2008 and 2016. "Extension to extension. Marching business up to the top of the hill, only to march them down again", he will say, according to advance extracts.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that all Conservative Party candidates in the December 12 election have pledged to back his Brexit deal, opening the door to getting the agreement passed through parliament if the party were to win a majority.

Lord Falconer said he has seen evidence that the claims are correct, telling BBC Radio 4's Today Programme: "I've seen evidence from Ann Widdecombe that is a film in which first she says first of all that somebody from Number 10, not Boris Johnson, not Sir Edward Lister, not Dominic Cummings, first of all pushed her not to stand with, quote, "moral arguments", then came back and pushed her not to stand on the basis that she be given a place in the negotiating team".

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said yesterday he was putting on hold further cuts in corporation tax and told voters he would pump the money into services such as health instead, addressing a central issue in the Dec 12 election.

Corbyn also said he would not form a coalition government if his party fails to secure a majority in parliament. Last week, the party said that if it formed a government, it would part-nationalize telecoms provider BT and provide free internet access to all Britons.

Corbyn told attendees that Labour's plan would help end uncertainty for businesses as it "won't be ripping up our main trading relationship".

Investors reacted positively to signs of political cohesion within the Tory government, with increasing certainty over Brexit providing a boost for the pound to U.S. dollar exchange rate. "And I think many of you know that, because you know things can't go on as they are", he said.

Both major parties came in for criticism Sunday from Carolyn Fairbairn, director general of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI). "Not just in the future but right now", she said.
