The countdown to the U.K. election has entered its final days






The countdown to the U.K. election has entered its final days with Britons waiting to find out who will control the country’s departure from the European Union — an event that will have profound changes in Britain for decades to come. Prime Minister Boris Johnson remains the favorite to win on Thursday, although his lead has narrowed in opinion polls in recent weeks. Speaking to Sky News on Sunday, Johnson said he was nervous about the narrowing polls and said he and his Conservative Party were “fighting for every vote.” The Conservatives’ lead differs between polls but numbers over the last week have given the party a lead of between nine and 15 points ahead of its rival Labour.
