Boris Johnson survives leadership vote but 41% of his MPs have “no confidence” – BBC News

The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has survived a vote of no confidence in his leadership but failed to win the backing of a large number of his own members of Parliament.

More than 41% of Conservative MPs refused to back him remaining as Prime Minister and voted that they had “no confidence” in his leadership.

211 Tory MPs supported the Prime Minister while 148 voted against him.

The result means Mr Johnson will remain in office but with seriously weakened authority.
