BORIS Johnson is on course for an 68-seat majority as the latest polls show the biggest Conservative Party lead over Labour in two years.
With less than three weeks to go until the December election, the Tories are tipped to secure 359 seats and Labour just 208 according to a Telegraph poll.
If today’s prediction comes true then it would break the parliament deadlock and put Mr Johnson in position to get his Brexit deal passed in the Commons.
Meanwhie, the PM’s plans will see the Tories spend just £1 for every £28 splurged by the leftie leader.
Mr Johnson wants to spend around £3billion on extra day-to-day spending compared to Mr Corbyn’s £83bn, as revealed in yesterday’s Tory party manifesto.
Mr Blair today warned his own party would “pose a risk” to the country.
He said it would be “unwise” for the UK to support Labour getting the keys to Downing Street.
Mr Blair said he will still vote Labour – but hit out at Mr Corbyn’s left-wing agenda.
He said during a Reuters event in London that “the problem with revolutions is never how they begin but how they end”.
And he refused to say if Mr Corbyn is fit to lead Britain.
He said: “My differences with Jeremy Corbyn have been pretty well documented and my views haven’t changed, let me put it like that.
“But I think if the polls are right there is a negligible chance of a Labour majority.”
The analysis by the Electoral Calculus puts the Tories winning 359 seats, Labour 208 and the Liberal Democrats securing 20.
Mr Johnson called for the election in order to break the Brexit deadlock in parliament over the past two years.
If Mr Johnson wins he will plan an emergency Queen’s Speech and bring his Brexit Bill back just before Christmas – ahead of the January deadline.
A Downing Street spokesperson said: “The new Parliament will be summoned to meet on Tuesday 17 December, when the business will be the election of the Speaker and the swearing-in of members.
“Should this Prime Minister return, the State Opening of Parliament and the Queen’s Speech will follow on Thursday 19 December.”
The Conservatives lost their 12-seat majority after former-Prime Minister Theresa May called an election in 2017, forcing the party to form a coalition with the DUP.
Ex-PM David Cameron failed to secure a majority in 2010 and formed a coalition with the Lib Dems, but in 2015 managed to form a government with a slim majority.
Apart from the two years under Mr Cameron, Mr Johnson is on track to form a Conservative majority government for the first time in almost a decade.
