Boris Johnson’s future: Tory MPs stepping back from challenge – minister
BBC News says Conservative MPs are starting to “step back” and think twice about a leadership challenge against Boris Johnson, a minister has said.
Conor Burns – the government’s minister for Northern Ireland – said colleagues were now choosing to wait for the report into the No 10 lockdown parties.
It follows a dramatic day in Westminster with calls for the PM to quit and a Tory MP defecting to Labour.
No 10 has insisted the prime minister will fight any leadership challenge.
