Boris Johnson may face biggest rebellion so far over new Covid rules
The Guardian says Boris Johnson faces the biggest rebellion of his premiership on Tuesday over new Covid restrictions amid warnings he has galvanised previously loyal MPs against him.
Critics have warned that up to 100 MPs could oppose plan B changes across a series of Commons votes, forcing the government to rely heavily on Labour for them to pass.
Dozens of backbenchers – and some junior ministerial aides – have expressed opposition to requiring people attending large events to prove their vaccine status or a recent negative test result. Some are poised to rebel or abstain despite never having voted against restrictions before.
