Labour will table a no-confidence vote in Boris Johnson’s Government today, as Sir Keir Starmer attempts to capitalise on the fallout of the Tory leadership contest.
The Opposition party are set to table a motion for a vote to happen tomorrow.
Sir Keir vowed to take motion if the Conservative party didn’t force Mr Johnson to face down as Prime Minister yesterday.
Labour said it was untenable for the incumbent of No10 to stay in his position while the Tories held a leadership contest.
Sir Keir said last Friday: “In the event that they don’t do away with him then Labour will step up and convey a vote of no confidence.
“He must go. He can’t cling on.
“They can’t inflict him on the country for the subsequent few months.”
