Boris Johnson laid out his plan for his first 100 days in office as the U.K. general election enters its final week, including delivering a budget and getting Brexit “done” by Jan. 31. The prime minister also committed to securing a trade deal with the European Union by the end of next year.

Labour pointed to nearly 3,500 “days of failure” under the Tories, and said more of the same won’t work as it plugged its plans for hiring new teachers and tackling the housing crisis. But leader Jeremy Corbyn is struggling to shake off allegations of antisemitism in his party.
