Boris defies growing calls for him to quit and says he’ll fight next election
The Metro says the prime minister has said that he will not step down as Tory leader, and intends to fight the next general election.
It comes after calls for him to resign following a fine for breaching Covid rules that he put into law.
He made the comment on a flight to Gujarat in India today, where he seemed to want to talk about anything other than partygate.
Asked by journalists travelling with him whether he would fight the next general election as the Tory leader, the Prime Minister replied: ‘Of course.’
