UK PM Urges ‘Unity, Resolve’ From Rebel MPs Ahead of Vote on COVID Tier System to Avoid Lockdown 3

Boris Johnson has warned that England will face another national lockdown unless MPs unite and vote in favour of the government’s new coronavirus restrictions, which might place 99 per cent of the country under the toughest Tier 2 or 3 curbs from Wednesday. writes the Daily Telegraph.

Facing a brewing revolt from backbenchers over the three-tier COVID-19 alert level system that comes under a House of Commons vote on Tuesday, in a letter published on Sunday evening, Johnson directly appealed to the rebels in the COVID Recovery Group (CRG). He said that there was β€œevery reason” to hope and believe β€œthe worst is nearly behind us, so now more than ever is the time to demonstrate unity and resolve.”
