Cupboard allies rush to shore up Boris because it emerges he went SWIMMING in Rwanda after Tories suffered crippling double by-election blow and was ‘blindsided’ by get together chair Oliver Dowden’s resolution to give up… as No10 says he WON’T reduce brief overseas tour

Cupboard allies scrambled to shore up Boris Johnson in the present day as he vowed to ‘preserve going’ regardless of Tory chair Oliver Dowden dramatically quitting within the wake of the get together’s double by-election pummelling. 

The PM mentioned he would ‘hear’ after seismic ends in Tiverton and Wakefield, however tried to minimize the large blows as a tough ‘patch’ for the federal government.

Nonetheless, Mr Johnson – who’s greater than 4,000 miles away at a Commonwealth summit in Rwanda – is going through a recent risk to his place after Mr Dowden walked out saying he shared the ‘misery’ of activists concerning the run of unhealthy outcomes.

It has emerged that the premier went swimming at his lodge in Kigali instantly after studying of the defeats, with sources admitting he was then ‘blindsided’ by the outgoing minister’s resolution.

Moderately than stating his persevering with loyalty to the premier in his resignation letter, Mr Dowden mentioned he ‘stays loyal to the Conservative Occasion‘. Aides didn’t reply to questions on whether or not he nonetheless helps Mr Johnson as chief.

Senior figures mobilised to restrict the harm this morning, with deputy PM Dominic Raab insisting the get together should ‘relentlessly focus’ on coverage and Priti Patel saying the federal government is ‘cracking on with the duty’.

However Mr Dowden’s exit – which got here simply minutes earlier than he was on account of begin broadcast interviews and as a minimum paves the way in which for a reshuffle – ratchets up strain following the bombshell ends in West Yorkshire and Devon. The contests had been misplaced by giant margins after months of sleaze and financial woe which have bedevilled Mr Johnson’s premiership.

The Conservatives gave up the beforehand ultra-safe, Brexit-backing seat of Tiverton and Honiton to the Liberal Democrats, with Richard Foord successful by greater than 6,000 votes in a seat the place the get together got here third in 2019.
