BORIS Johnson could be brought down within days of apropos PM with dual Tories on “defection watch”, it emerged today.

The celebration also fears a no-confidence suit that Jeremy Corbyn could list as shortly as a new PM takes power.
Remainers Phillip Lee and Guto Bebb are seen as a Tory MPs many expected to burst ship.
Both have denied that they devise to join a Lib Dems if Boris becomes leader.
But Dr Lee said: “I am not certain how most longer a conservatism that we paint can adhere on in there.”
