Another Tory MP has thrown in a letter of no confidence to Sir Graham Brady the chairman of the 1922 Committee and has called on him to resign.

Andrew Bridgen told his constituents that he has submitted the letter of no confidence due to more damning “revelations over the past week.”

Bridgen warned that the number of letters that has been submitted could now be close to triggering a vote of no confidence following revelations from the Sue Gray report.

The Tory MP wrote, “I did believe that during the initial stages of the Russia/Ukraine war that it would be wrong to have a leadership contest.

“There have, however, been further revelations over the past week and there is obviously and rightly still a lot of anger about the culture in No 10 during the lockdown period.

“I and colleagues have put in a letter of no confidence over the past few days and it may well be the numbers are close to triggering a vote of no confidence.

“This would give the parliamentary party the opportunity to register whether they believe Boris Johnson is the person to continue leading the party or not.”

On Monday Tory MP Jeremy Wright and Elliot Colbrun also told the Prime Minister to quit.

Colburn announced on Monday that he has submitted a letter of no confidence to Sir Graham Brady the chairman of the 1922 Committee and has not released any statement.

Wright wrote a 2,303 letter on his website demanding that Johnson quits following the fallout from the Sue Gray report and the partygate scandal.

Wright wrote, “I fear that these events have done real and lasting damage to the reputation not just of this Government but to the institutions and authority of Government more generally.”

Wright who was Theresa May’s and David Cameron’s Attorney General said he cannot be sure if Johnson had misled Parliament, he added, “Trust matters because it is sadly likely that a government will again need to ask the citizens of this country to follow rules it will be difficult to comply with and to make sacrifices which will be hard to bear, in order to serve or preserve the greater good.”
