LOCAL MP Ian Liddell-Grainger has added his voice to those calling for Prime Minister Boris Johnson to step down - and will be casting a proxy vote against him in tonight’s ballot.

The Bridgwater and West Somerset MP is currently in Sierra Leone, where he is co-chairing the Africa Regional Conference - and has no way of returning to the UK in time to vote personally.

He said today: “I have already made my view clear both to the prime minister himself and to the chairman of the 1922 committee, a member of which will be submitting my vote.

“I believe he should step down for the good of the country. That is the only way to resolve this intolerable situation which is damaging both the government’s ability to govern and the UK’s reputation on the world stage.

“And even if the Prime Minister survives tonight my views on his position and the step I believe he should take will remain unchanged.”
