When asked if he feared the possibility of Nigel Farage standing in the election, Rishi Sunak said voters should only have two choices on July 4.

Speaking at a campaign event in Oxfordshire, the Prime Minister said: “At the end of the day, on July 5, one in two people will be Prime Minister, either Keir Starmer or me. A vote for anyone who is not a Conservative candidate is just a vote to put Keir Starmer at No.10.

“So if you are someone who cares about tackling migration, both boats and legal migration, if you are someone who wants a more proportionate and pragmatic approach to net zero that allows people to ‘save money, and if you’re someone who wants to lower taxes, only conservatives are going to deliver those things. And that’s the choice in this election.”

He added: “Who would they rather see in No 10 on July 5, working on these issues? Is it Keir Starmer or is it me?
