Boris Johnson PMQs – Watch LIVE now as PM faces another grilling & may be knifed by own his MPs in ‘Pork Pie Plot’

IT’S D-Day for Boris Johnson as he faces a PMQs grilling before his own MPs knife him with a series of letters of no confidence.

Mr Johnson is currently facing another fiery PMQs against Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer where he is being grilled on the lockdown party crisis that continues to engulf the government.

The PM was dealt a significant blow less than 30 mins before PMQs when MP Christian Wakeford defected from the Tories to Labour, offering a blistering resignation where he described Mr Johnson’s recent behaviour as “disgraceful”.

Dozens of other newly-elected Conservative MPs – many of them also from the northern ‘Red Wall’ constituencies that famously switched from Labour to Tory in 2019 – have threatened to trigger a no confidence vote this afternoon.

The attempt to unseat the Prime Minister has been dubbed the ‘Pork Pie Plot’ and requires at least 54 Conservative MPs to turn against him by submitting letters explaining they have no confidence in Mr Johnson.
