MPs reject 3 day recess for Conservative Party Conference.Watch
So Johnson loses again. MPs reject something that is perfectly normal.
Guess they'll be no conference womanising for Johnson. Maybe he can find a young entrepreneur looking for a grant to fill this hole in his life?
I am no Tory supporter but the simple answer is because that is what happens every year.
This vote is just so one of them can. Sadly for them, that party doesn't have a majority.
So the Labour Party are allowed to have their week long conference in Brighton but conservatives aren’t allowed theirs??
Nothing stopped the the Conservative Party conference taking place over the last few weeks.
Boris/JRM could have just brought forward the standard vote to recess for the period. They chose not to, this is an inadvertent consequence of that decision.
Also, you might remember that the Labour Party Conference was cut short due to Parliament reconvening.
