BREAKING: Boris Johnson to face Vote of Confidence this evening
Boris Johnson is set to face a no confidence vote in his leadership as Prime Minister tonight between 6-8pm.
It has been confirmed that at least 54 MPs (15% of Conservative MPs) have written to the chair of the 1922 Committee, Sir Graham Brady, calling for a vote.
A Downing Street spokesman said:
"Tonight is a chance to end months of speculation and allow the government to draw a line and move on, delivering on the people's priorities.
"The PM welcomes the opportunity to make his case to MPs and will remind them that when they're united and focused on the issues that matter to voters there is no more formidable political force."
