DORSET MPs have publicly withdrawn their support for Boris Johnson, as the Prime Minister fights for his political life following two cabinet resignations on Tuesday night. 

Chancellor Rishi Sunak and the health secretary Sajid Javid both spectacularly quit the government on Tuesday. 

As the Daily Echo went to press, many Tory MPs across the country have been calling for the PM to resign, including North Dorset MP Simon Hoare.

Speaking with the Daily Echo, Mr Hoare said: “If Boris has any self-respect or any interest in the wellbeing in the country and its reputation, and the wellbeing and interests of the longer-term reputation of the Conservative party for once in his life, he is going to have to go.  

“His role is hollowed out, with a weakened government. It is not sustainable and I am not prepared to put my name to it.”  

Mr Hoare added the rules of the 1922 Committee should be changed to get the PM out, stating that he has written to the chair of the committee Graham Brady MP asking for the change. 

“He’s either going to be kicked out or carried out. This is the end of the days kind of stuff, in a Roman Empire sort of way.”

Poole MP Sir Robert Syms said it will be “very difficult” for Boris Johnson to survive as Prime Minister. 

Sir Robert added: “Clearly there is still quite a lot of upset about the way the Prime Minister is handling things and the one strength he has had so far is he has kept his cabinet loyal to him. 

“The fact they have gone today does mean it looks like it is going to be very difficult for the Prime Minister to survive.” 

Sir Robert has submitted a letter to Graham Brady MP calling for a change of the rules at the 1922 Committee and called for a second vote of no confidence.

We attempted to contact the remaining MPs across the conurbation. 

Taking to Twitter, Tobias Ellwood, MP for Bournemouth East, said following Mr Javid’s resignation: “It’s indeed time for a new direction.  

“Let’s handle this change responsibly. The nation is watching.” 

Conor Burns, MP for Bournemouth West, gave his “ongoing and full support” to the PM whilst speaking in the House of Commons on Tuesday. He appeared on BBC's Politics Live to defend the Prime Minister on Wednesday lunchtime.

Sir Chris Chope, MP for Christchurch and Michael Tomlinson, MP for Mid Dorset and North Poole have not publicly spoken out or returned our calls.
