As Tory MPs quit, who’ll stand with Johnson if he ever gets the election he wants?

Claire Perry: On her way out – but how many Tories will follow her example?

After Jo Johnson, the deluge: Conservative MPs are lining up to quit as candidates in any future election in a mass display of disloyalty to Boris Johnson.

Claire Perry might say she backs BoJob’s Brexit strategy but she is unwilling to campaign under his banner and that tells us everything we need to know.

Michael Fallon and Nick Hurd (who?) are also on their way out – and more may follow.

They may be top of the opinion polls at the moment, but it seems the Conservatives are self-destructing.

Former Tory minister Claire Perry announced her intention to quit as MP if there’s a snap general election but said she backed Boris Johnson’s ‘brave’ Brexit strategy.

The Wiltshire MP, who campaigned to remain in the EU, tweeted her support for the PM – but her resignation has sparked fears of a mass exodus.

Sources say 10 more could announce plans to quit rather than fight for their seat if Britain heads to the polls, The Sun reports.

Her announcement comes after former Defence Secretary Michael Fallon and London Minister Nick Hurd said they also wouldn’t stand in an election.

    Are the tories finally self imploding? It took a self serving Eaton educated “rich boy” less than 4 weeks to do it.
