The MP for Bury South was ousted moments after announcing he had defected to the Labour Party

Christian Wakeford has been removed from the Tory MP’s Whatsapp group chat, minutes after he announced plans to defect to the Labour Party.

The vocal critic of Boris Johnson had confirmed earlier this week he had submitted a letter of no confidence in the prime minister, citing Johnson’s poor leadership and disgraceful conduct.

It’s thought the MP for Bury South made the decision to defect to the Labour party late Tuesday evening after the chief whip threatened to remove him from his seat following a week of public criticism of the Johnson.
