The Conservative party doesn’t miss the “drama” of Boris Johnson, Grant Shapps has said.
Chatting with Laura Kuenssberg on Sunday, 11 June, the energy secretary was pressed on whether more MPs would quit in solidarity with the previous prime minister.
Mr Johnson announced his resignation as MP on Friday (9 June) after launching a scathing attack on the Commons Privileges Committee probe into whether he misled the Commons over the Partygate scandal.
Mr Johnson’s allies Nadine Dorries and Nigel Adams resigned after the previous PM’s statement.
“It’s extremely hard to predict the long run,” Mr Shapps said.
