Tories who want PM to resign ‘facing intimidation and blackmail’, MP warns

Videos
A Conservative MP has said Tories who have expressed a lack of confidence in Boris Johnson have faced intimidation from the party and should contact the police if they have been blackmailed.

William Wragg, chair of the public administration and constitutional affairs committee, said a “number of MPs have faced intimidation” after declaring, or assumed to have declared, their desire for a vote of confidence in the PM.

He said it is “not the function” of the government whips office to breach the ministerial code by “threatening to withdraw investments in constituencies funded by the public purse”.
