Austin Mitchell: 'This is the most uncertain UK election ever'

From Sunday Morning, 7:15 am on 8 December 2019

At 85, former Labour MP Austin Mitchell has witnessed and been part of more elections than even he might care to remember. The former MP for Grimsby from 1977-2015 remains sharp as a tack and is picking a narrow victory for Boris Johnson, who he'd like to have a beer with, in this week's UK election.
