Conservative Whip Gareth Johnson announced to resign from this role of discipline enforcer just ahead of tomorrow’s crucial Brexit deal vote.

Johnson said “over the last few weeks, I have tried to reconcile my duties as a Whip to assist the Government to implement the European Withdrawal Agreement, with my own personal objection to the agreement”.

He added that “I have concluded that I cannot, in all conscience, support the Government’s position when it is clear this deal would be detrimental to our nation’s interests.”
