BORIS Johnson´s Government has lost its majority after a Conservative MP this afternoon defected to the Liberal Democrats.

The Government has maintained a flimsy majority only with the backing of Northern Ireland´ unionist party the DUP since former Prime Minister Theresa May gambled her job at the 2017 General Election.

Tory MP for Bracknell Dr Phillip Lee crossed the floor to cheers of approval from the opposition benches and joined the Lib Dems after handing his written resignation to the Prime Minister.

Dr Phillip denounced the Conservative Party he served for 27 years as a ´narrow faction´ where an individual is measured by ´how recklessly one wishes to leave the European Union´.
