Boris Johnson could win the Tories a giant 140-seat majority in 2022 if he is made the Prime Minister, a new poll claimed today.

The former foreign secretary is the only person among the ten Conservative leadership candidates to be able to thrash Jeremy Corbyn and kill off Nigel Farage's Brexit Party, a survey of 2,000 voters says.

Fellow Brexiteer Dominic Raab is the only other candidate projected to beat Jeremy Corbyn - but would still be 57 seats short of a majority.

The projections published in the Daily Telegraph today also show that the worst performing new Prime Minister would be Rory Stewart, who would only win 51 seats.

Jeremy - Corbyn - Majority - Circumstances - Liberal

Jeremy Corbyn would not win a majority in any circumstances with the Liberal Democrats picking up Remainer votes and the Brexit Party hoovering up Leave voters, according to the polling.

Martin Baxter of Electoral Calculus told the Telegraph that Mr Johnson's aim must be to win 33 per cent of the vote - because he would win the next election due in 2022.

Tory Remainers vowed to join forces with Labour in Parliament today in a bid to stop Boris Johnson pursuing a No Deal Brexit.

In a dramatic move last night, timed to coincide with Mr Johnson's leadership launch, Jeremy Corbyn will force a Commons vote on a plan designed to make it illegal for Theresa May's successor to take Britain out of the EU without a deal.
