BORIS Johnson will go on a whistle-stop tour of the country today as the election campaign turns to the economy.
The PM will visit Northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland as the Chancellor Sajid Javid and Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell battle it out over who is best to run the country's finances - and who will control the money in your pocket.
And today Corbyn has been hit by another crisis – as a second ex Labour MP said they would not back him to be PM.
John Woodcock joined Ian Austin to blast the Labour boss at the launch of a poster attacking his campaign to be PM today.
The poster states: “Jeremy Corbyn: A disgrace to his party, a disgrace to this country.”
Mr Woodcock, who represented Barrow and Furness, quit the Labour party earlier this year but chose not to stand in the election as his partner is having a baby.
He has since been made the government’s czar to tackle violent extremism.
Mr Woodcock said: “There are one of two people who are going to be prime minister after an election. It is Boris Johnson or it is Jeremy Corbyn.”
“We pleaded with our friends in the Labour Party to face up to this choice, not to leave it until too late.
“Now all of that to an extent is water under the bridge, but we have arrived in a campaign where one of two people are going to be prime minister.”
He continued: “The choice to keep Jeremy Corbyn away from Downing Street, to stop him getting his hands on the levers of national security and defence has to be to vote Conservative in this election and that's what I'll be doing as well.”
COMRADE CORBYN DOES IT AGAIN
Jeremy Corbyn hailed the work of an anarchist who inspired the assassination of US President in his speech to Labour supporters in Liverpool.
The hard left boss quoted the late political activist and writer Emma Goldman who said “if I can't dance, it's not my revolution” as he delivered an election stump speech to his party faithful this morning
Anarchist Leon Czologosz assassinated the 25th President of the US William McKinley in 1909 after hearing a speech by Goldman who said “all rulers should be exterminated.”
DILYN OUT AND ABOUT
Boris and Carrie's sweet pooch Dilyn is out and about with Carrie today on the campaign trail.
Boris' other half has taken some time off work to get pounding the pavements and get the vote out for the Tories.

ON THE BUSES
Jeremy Corbyn has launched Labour's election battle bus as he hits the road on the campaign trail.
The “It’s Time For Real Change” bus (catchy) will be unveiled in Liverpool today.
After, Mr Corbyn is off to Lancashire where he will be attending a rally in Manchester this evening.
Boris Johnson and the Tories are not popular in either city.
Maybe this is finally a big red bus Boris will not be happy to see…
Sajid Javid is making his big pitch on stage for turning on the spending taps to pay for a splurge on schools, hospitals and pay for Brits.
As he and shadow chancellor John McDonnell head up North to try and hoover up swing voters, the Chancellor ripped up Tory borrowing rules to he can spend more on what Brits want.
He's set out a new set of fiscal rules- but warned that Labour would “make the country sick and unhealthy again.”
In a rousing speech in Manchester he said: “Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell are like the anti-vaxxers of economic policy.
“Not only did they reject the treatment needed to heal our economy and get the deficit down by four-fifths.
“They now want to take every step imaginable to make the country sick and unhealthy again.”
