A Conservative MP, who belongs to Boris Johnson’s own party, has called for the PM to be replaced with a “national government”.
Last night, Johnson announced unprecedented rules to enforce social distancing – banning all public gatherings of more than two people.
As a result of these exceptional changes to our way of life, Tory MP George Freeman has called for a coalition government of all the major parties to steer us through the crisis.
The prospect of letting Labour into Downing Street will undoubtedly strike fear into many Tories.
We suspect Freeman might be on the end of a quite blunt phone call from the Conservative chief whip this morning.
Although, given Boris Johnson’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak so far, there’s no denying he could use a bit of help.
