PRIME minister Boris Johnson on Friday (17) suffered a crushing by-election defeat in a constituency never previously lost by the Conservatives, a result which raises questions about his leadership.

The Tories won the seat in North Shropshire, central England, by a massive majority in 2019, but that was wiped out by the Liberal Democrats in Thursday’s (16) vote in a result that will intensify the mutinous mood among Conservative MPs.

Tory candidate Neil Shastri Hurst lost to Helen Morgan of the Liberal Democrats.
