Boris Johnson set to face vote of confidence

Published

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to face a vote of confidence, with the Chairman of the Backbench Committee saying he has received the threshold of 54 letters needed for a vote.

A ballot will now be held between 6-8pm local time, and the votes will then be counted immediately afterwards.

An announcement will then be made.

“This is what I thought would take place,” UK Health Secretary Sajid Javid expressed. But it’s not what I think actually the country needs.

“I hope there isn’t – you have to be prepared but I think that what the country wants is for the government to get on and focus on the job.”

Tory MP Jesse Norman and former Treasury Minister, has announced that he has written to Sir Graham Brady calling for a no confidence vote.

“I have supported Boris Johnson for 15 years – very sadly I can no longer do so.”

Johnson’s tenure as Prime Minister has been marred by controversy and a lack of public support, most recently via the investigations into breaking his own COVID-19 lockdown laws.
