Boris Johnson will be aiming to pass his new Covid restrictions through the House of Commons on Tuesday night, including extending the face covering mandate and introducing Covid passes for major indoor events. But some Tory MPs have revealed their intention to turn their back on the Prime Minister.

Downing Street is trying to push through compulsory face masks, as well as new rules on self-isolation and the introduction of Covid passports.

Mr Johnson has previously described the new restrictions as “balanced and proportionate”, but some backbench Tories disagree.

Brexit-backing Steve Baker appeared to be one of the most vocal rebels, claiming that the PM’s planned restrictions were creating a “miserable dystopia”.

He previously estimated that “at least” 60 Conservative MPs will be voting against the Government on Tuesday.

It’s still not entirely clear whether the backbench Tories will be actively voting against the Government, or simply abstaining from the vote.

Either way, more than 80 MPs have already voiced their discontent over the measures, according to The Spectator.

Mr Johnson could be facing up to the largest pack of rebels from within his own party since taking over from Theresa May, back in 2019.

It’s believed that some of the rebels will be voting against the Government in protest at the PM’s leadership.

The PM has most recently come under fire for reportedly hosting a Christmas quiz at Downing Street last year, when the rest of the country were in lockdown.

A host of other parties were believed to be taking place across the festive period, and the Cabinet Secretary has been tasked with investigating the reports.

Meanwhile, Mr Johnson’s flat refurbishment was also found to break electoral law.

The verdict brought allegations of sleaze back into the public eye, with the Conservative Party fined £17,800 in addition.
