TWO other Tory MPs confirmed last night that they had tabled letters calling for Boris Johnson to resign.
And a third said the Prime Minister should trigger a vote of confidence to end the Partygate saga once and for all.
A call for his resignation came from former Attorney General Jeremy Wright, who said breaking the lockdown on Downing Street had done “real and lasting damage” to the Government’s authority.
Elliot Colburn, Newbie MP for Carshalton and Wallington, confirmed he also submitted a letter.
Nickie Aiken suggested Mr Johnson should undergo a vote of confidence to end speculation.
Meanwhile, a fourth Tory MP, Andrew Bridgen, confirmed he had returned a letter to backbench Sir Graham Brady after withdrawing it when Russia invaded Ukraine.
At least 26 Tories now say they want one vote from all Conservative MPs.
Rebel leader Tobias Ellwood said some colleagues would “deny” the looming election defeat if Mr Johnson stayed No. 10.
But as tensions mounted in Westminster, an ally of the Prime Minister branded his critics a “bunch of armchair generals delivering watery criticism and cozy recommendations without a coherent plan or alternative vision, team or leader”.
The prime minister is planning a major riot in the coming weeks with a big speech on the growth of the economy to get a grip on the cost of living.
Meanwhile, Labor and the Lib Dems are calling for a formal inquiry into a second lockdown meeting allegedly held by Mr Johnson’s wife Carrie.
No. 10 did not deny that she met with two male assistants on the Prime Minister’s 56th birthday and refused to say whether it would have broken any rules.
