LONDON (Reuters) – British Conservative Party lawmaker Jesse Norman, who was previously loyal to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, said on Monday he was joining calls for a confidence vote in Johnson’s leadership.
“I have always been deeply committed to public service,” Norman, a former junior finance minister, said in a letter to Johnson that he published on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR).
“But recent events have served to clarify the position this country is in under your leadership, beyond any doubt; and I am afraid I can see no circumstances in which I could serve in a government led by you.”
UK lawmaker Norman says he can’t back Johnson in any circumstances
