Boris Johnson LIVE: Rebels about to unleash new secret recordings – plot to oust PM erupts


Conservative MP Philip Dunne has described the claims that Boris Johnson intimidated his Tory critics as “very strange”. 

Asked if there should be an inquiry, the former minister told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “I find it a very strange allegation, and I was a whip myself.

Mr Dunne was a whip for three and a half years adding: “Obviously the whips try to persuade colleagues to support either the Government or the opposition depending on which side they’re on, but I’ve never come across anything as described like that.

“I find it very strange.”
