Portsmouth MP responds to result of vote of confidence in government

Responding to the result of the vote of confidence in the government tonight, the Member of Parliament for Portsmouth South, Stephen Morgan, said:

“This Tory government is running scared after blocking Labour’s no confidence motion in the Prime Minister.

“Instead, it moved the goalposts to keep him presiding over his zombie government, as Tory Ministers distract themselves in their bids to replace him. Meanwhile, the country faces a national emergency, a spiralling cost-of-living crisis and worsening backlogs caused by his government’s economic and political failures.

“Portsmouth and the country do not need a fourth Conservative Prime Minister in six years. We need a fresh start and a Labour government that will always act in the national interest.”
