UK's Johnson loses parliamentary majority as MP joins Lib Dems

Writing on Twitter, Tory MP Phillip Lee - who is an ardent supporter of the United Kingdom remaining in the European Union - announced his resignation citing concerns around the "direction of the Conservative Party". Every penny you contribute goes directly to our writers for their work.

"To these rebels in his own party, he said, effectively, "I'm going to kick you out if you defy me.' And this would effectively end their careers", NPR's Frank Langfitt explained on Morning Edition Tuesday before the day's tumult in the House of Commons. It was also an honour to serve as a Government Minister for two years working to improve our justice system".

Lee, who had been the Tory MP for Bracknell since 2010, has defected from the Conservatives to the Liberal Democrats ahead of crucial votes on blocking an October 31st no deal. "I will not implicitly condone these things by being party to them".

"That is why today I am joining Jo Swinson and the Liberal Democrats".

Fiorentina to sign Liverpool teen Duncan
Liverpool pledged to seek a resolution with Duncan and described Rubie's allegations as "inaccurate" and "inflammatory". Bobby Duncan's move from Liverpool to Fiorentina looks as if it will finally happen before Monday's deadline.

"Dr Lee said in a letter the Tories "had become a narrow faction in which one's Conservatism is measured by how recklessly one wants to leave the European Union". Lee, who had been a Tory for almost three decades, said the party has become "infected with the twin diseases of populism and English nationalism". However, each of us must stand and be counted and ultimately do what we think is in our country's and constituency's best interests.

"More widely, it is undermining our country's economy, democracy and role in the world".

Mr Johnson replied: "I'm glad you have given me occasion to remind the House there are in fact 700 more doctors in the NHS since the vote to leave the European Union and, actually, just in the last six seeks we have been able to announce another £1.8 billion going to 20 new hospital upgrades around the country in addition to the £34 billion extra that the Conservatives are putting into the NHS".

His defection turns the government into a minority administration, even with the support of 10 DUP MPs.
