Conservative MPs said retaining their seats at the next general election will “no doubt” be difficult following the double by-election loss.
The party lost their former stronghold of Tiverton and Honiton to the Liberal Democrats and surrendered Wakefield to Labour at the by-elections on Thursday night.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson acknowledged that the results are “tough” but vowed to “keep going” – despite the losses dealing another blow to his authority.
Meanwhile, Conservative Party co-chairman Oliver Dowden quit, saying he and Tory supporters are “distressed and disappointed by recent events”, telling Mr Johnson: “Someone must take responsibility.”
So who is going to come out and support the PM?
Over to you Nadine…
It wasn’t missed that her World War 11′ gaffe had Twitter in hysterics.
