Lichfield’s MP says he will be supporting Boris Johnson after a vote of confidence in the Prime Minister was confirmed.
The poll of Conservative MPs will take place later today (6th June).
At least 180 Tory MPs would need to vote against Mr Johnson to see him outed as party leader.
Former Minister Jesse Norman is the latest Conservative MP to publicly speak out against the Prime Minister, highlighting a number of issues including the planned sell-off of Channel 4 and the controversial proposal to send refugees to Rwanda.
But Michael Fabricant has confirmed on social media that he will not be one of those seeking to oust Mr Johnson.
“I will be suppporting him [Boris Johnson].
“Reading Jesse Norman’s statement, this vote has more to do with political direction than Partygate.
“I respect Jesse, but I support our stopping cross-Channel illegal immigration, the sale of Channel 4 to strengthen it, and a tough line with Russia.”Michael Fabricant
