PRIME Minister Boris Johnson has won his confidence vote after the majority of Conservative MPs backed him in tonight’s poll.
Mr Johnson had 211 voting for him and 148 voting against him.
The vote was announced early this morning after a sufficient number of letters of no confidence meant the threshold had been passed.
Earlier today, Mid Worcestershire MP and Sports Minister Nigel Huddleston said he would be backing the PM in the vote
“He has apologised for what happened in Number 10 and is making changes
“He got the big calls right, eg furlough, vaccinations and Ukraine
“We must focus on the people’s priorities including cost of living and levelling up, not on ourselves.”
The number of no confidence letters came after the ‘Partygate’ scandal which has plagued the party over the past few months and the long-awaited publication of Sue Gray’s report into the lockdown get-togethers at Number 10, along with pictures and details of what happened at the gatherings.
