ACTOR Laurence Fox will have something to smile about tonight as its revealed he beat Boris Johnson in a popularity poll if an Election was to be held.
The rebellious actor, who has just launched a new political party to ‘Reclaim’ Britain’s culture won the poll with 63.7% after we polled 3,877 readers.
We asked: “If an election was held tomorrow… who would YOU vote for?.
Boris received 31.9%, Labour leader Keir Starmer knocked up a measly 4.4% and Fox won with more than half with a whopping 63.7%.
Fox says his new political movement “promises to make our future a shared endeavour, not a divisive one”.
He told the Sunday Telegraph that he wants to reform publicly funded institutions, from media to education, so they are “free from political bias”.
Last night, he branded Boris an “authoritarian” Prime Minister as the PM refused to U-Turn on his disastrous 10pm pub curfew and local lockdowns that have caused the hospitality sector to lose a staggering 60% drop in revenue since his clusterf*ck curfew began.
“I wonder what Boris the libertarian Telegraph columnist would make of Boris the authoritarian Prime Minister.” Tweeted Fox.
A campaign has also been launched to #CancelTheCurfew to save the hospitality industry.
Laurence, 42 has blasted Health Secretary Matt Hancock calling for an alternative strategy to let Brits return to their normal lives.
He said that Brits could not trust Hancock as he had “moved the goalposts so far?”
The actor turned politician says that a better strategy would be to “shield the elderly and vulnerable, continue to maintain responsible social distancing and good hygiene, respect our individual liberty and let us return to our lives.”
Meanwhile, data released by the government shows that between 14 August and 20 September, just 3% of Covid outbreaks were attributed to hospitality venues, compared to 42% in schools.
‘[Hospitality venues] are vilified as breeding grounds for the virus, yet Public Health England’s own figures show this is not true. In fact, the latest figures show that we have one of the lowest infection rates outside of the home,’ Cancel The Curfew campaign organisers wrote in a letter to the Prime Minister.
‘We are asking to open our doors. To be allowed to do what we do best whilst keeping our staff and customers safe. We are asking for your permission to keep the hospitality industry alive.’
