This is the explosive moment former Labour MP Ian Austin urges voters to back Boris Johnson. Austin, who announced that he was standing down as MP for Dudley North, told the Today programme that Corbyn is ‘completely unfit to lead our country’. He said that despite being a Labour party member since he was a teenager, he was urging voters to back the Tories on 12 December:

‘I have got to be honest. The country faces a big choice. There are only two people who can be prime minister on December 13th: Jeremy Corbyn or Boris Johnson. And I think Jeremy Corbyn is completely unfit to lead our country, completely unfit to lead the Labour party

I joined the Labour party as a teenager…so it has really come to something when I tell decent traditional patriotic voters that they should be voting for Boris Johnson at this election.’
