BORIS Johnson is allegedly trying to delay May’s local elections to stop a wipeout of local Tory seats, it has been claimed.

The Prime Minister is undemocratically trying to subvert the will of the people and is using the COVID crisis as an excuse to delay elections. Yesterday, a Tory MSP defected to Nigel Farage’s new Reform UK party, which aims to tackle the BBC, the unelected House of Lords and the Tory response to COVID-19. Several local elections – including those for London Mayor and for the devolved assemblies of Wales and Scotland – will be delayed once again. #coronavirus #tyranny
