A FESTIVE decoration made miserable reading for Boris Johnson as a General Election approaches.

The haunting Halloween coffin predicted No. 10 would soon be receiving a visit from Prime Ministers past with the words RIP Boris emblazoned across the front.

These were accompanied by a painting of a skull and crossbones, topped with the leader’s signature blond mop of hair.

There were also two dolls strung up from a metal railing using cobweb-like material.

The decorations were spotted in Norfolk Road, Brighton.

This follows the announcement that a General Election will be held on December 12 with politicians in the Commons voting by 438 to 20 at a third reading to approve the one-page Bill enabling it to take place.

A total of 16 Sussex MPs voted on the bill with all Conservative party members in favour of the election.

But Hove and Portslade Labour MP Peter Kyle and Brighton Pavilion Green MP Caroline Lucas voted against the election.

But Brighton Kemptown Labour MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle voted in favour of the election.

Boris Johnson pushed for the election hoping to strengthen his party’s position by securing a majority, allowing him to deliver Brexit. But, judging by their seasonal arts and craft project, this resident did not fancy his chances.
