Nadine Dorries has slammed Tory MPs who have been plotting to remove Liz Truss from Number 10. The Brexit-backing Mid Bedfordshire MP took to social media to take aim at her Conservative colleagues, including those who helped oust Boris Johnson from Downing Street.

James Wallis, who was elected to represent voters from the swing seat of Bridgend in 2019, added: “I have written to the Prime Minister to ask her to stand down as she no longer holds the confidence of this country.”

However, Ms Dorries previously suggested Ms Truss should call an early general election if she wants to ditch Conservative policies which helped get Mr Johnson elected in 2019.

The 65-year-old Liverpudlian said: “Widespread dismay at the fact that three years of work has effectively been put on hold.
