David Davis warns Tories can expect 'year of agony' if party doesn't swiftly oust Boris

David Davis (left) sensationally told the Prime Minister (middle) to 'in the name of God, go' in the Commons on Wednesday shortly after one of the newest Tory MPs defected to Labour. The former Brexit secretary, 73, then followed his dramatic declaration with a series of further explosive comments in a newspaper interview, in which he claimed the party is 'dying a death of 1,000 cuts'. He was then nearly run over by a taxi as he dodged further questions from a TV reporter later that evening. Mr Davis told the Telegraph: 'Boris will not leave Number 10 unless he's dragged out kicking and screaming. Very few inhabitants of Number 10 go voluntarily. That's why I felt the need to give him a nudge.' Others are prepared to follow the veteran's lead, according to The Times newspaper, which reported more are set to join the handful that have so far publicly called for Mr Johnson to step down as party leader. One privately told the newspaper that they had already decided that Mr Johnson must go, but that it would be appropriate to wait for Sue Gray's (right) report into Downing Street parties to be published. But there is concern about what the report will say, with some in the party fearing the report will be more damaging to the PM than expected, despite Downing Street briefing MPs that Mr Johnson should survive the fallout. However, the so-called 'Pork Pie plotters' - a collection of recently-elected MPs who have turned on the PM in recent weeks - are beginning to back off - for now at least, after failing to achieve their target of 54 no-confidence letters by the end of the day. 

Prime Minister's daughter Romy had Covid 'quite badly' but is 'on the mend', source says

Downing Street announced last week that a member of his family had tested positive for the virus. It did not state who the relative was but it is understood to be his daughter Romy (left, with Carrie, and centre with older brother Wilfred, 20 months). Mr Johnson (inset) did not appear in public for several days after last week's announcement, reappearing only on Tuesday when he gave an interview to Sky News about 'Partygate' revelations engulfing the Government. He appeared emotional and downcast - potentially partly explained by the personal strain on his family. A source said she had suffered with the virus 'quite badly' aged five weeks but was now 'on the mend'.

Tory in-fighting turns ugly as two are branded hypocrites for partygate criticism

Tory turncoat Christian Wakeford (left) - who defected to Labour yesterday after months of attacking Keir Starmer's party - was branded 'Christian Wineford' over his drinking. The Manchester Young Conservatives (inset) claimed he vomited from drinking too much tequila at a lockdown-busting party. And Dehenna Davison (right and inset bottom), who has been blamed for stirring up discontent among the 2019 intake of backbench Tory MPs, was accused of 'often being on the whisky and Coke in the afternoons'.

David Davis couldn't have looked more pleased if he'd sparked a cigarillo in self congratulation: HENRY DEEDES watches the former Brexit chief calling for Boris Johnson's resignation 

HENRY DEEDES: Boris Johnson didn't even bother turning to face his wannabe assassin. Because the moment Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle yelled 'David Davis' toward the end of PMQs it was obvious to everyone crammed into the Commons' throbbing bear-pit what was coming next. Keen observers of the Westminster mad house will know that whenever a Conservative leader is tottering, Mr Davis's sniper's bullet is rarely far behind. Should breakfast TV bookers ever require a Tory to indulge in some early morning talk of mutiny, Basher's yer man. As the old rascal rose, he even tilted his gaze towards the press gallery as if to say, 'Watch this, lads'. Standing tall on his toes, Davis began.

Excitable members of the so-called 'Pork Pie Plot' of rebel Red Wall MPs had briefed journalists that the PM would be facing a vote of no confidence by early afternoon - and 5pm at the latest.

A close ally of the PM said last night that Mr Johnson was 'delighted' about Mr Wakeford's move as it has given the party a common enemy, while a senior Tory MP said it had 'united' the backbenches.

First flights carrying aid are on their way to volcano and tsunami-stricken Tonga

Aid agencies have warned that Tonga is facing imminent water and food shortages after crops and drinking sources were inundated with salt water and ash from the devastating volcanic explosion (pictured bottom-inset) which triggered a 50ft tsunami.

The delivery of supplies will be contactless and the aircraft is expected to be on the ground for up to 90 minutes before returning to New Zealand. Tonga is COVID-19 free and is concerned that aid personnel may bring the virus.

Boris tells civil servants to get back to their desks and 'show the lead' as WFH guidance

The Prime Minister (left) yesterday announced plans to scrap all Covid restrictions by the spring as the Omicron wave continued to recede, with Covid cases, deaths and hospitalisations all down on last week. While measures such as Covid passports and compulsory face masks are to be dropped from next Thursday, staff are being encouraged back to offices and other workplaces immediately. Within minutes of his announcement, civil servants were told via a Cabinet Office email that they should being to return to work, with other departments expected to communicate similar memos today. There are no plans for targets, however, on how many staff are back at desks and how many days a week they are expected to be in the office. The PM insisted the move was vital for younger workers in particular, who would struggle to build up the necessary skills, experience and networks from home. Mr Johnson said that 'across Whitehall, we need to show a lead and make sure that we get back to work, everybody gets back to work'.

Britain could send MORE weapons to Ukraine as Defence Secretary Ben Wallace pledges

Britain may add to the 2,000 anti-tank missile launchers sent to Ukraine this week to try and thwart any Russian invasion, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said last night. It comes as Russia has amassed an estimated 127,000 troops at the border with Ukraine along with tanks and other weapons in apparent preparation for an invasion. In an exclusive interview, Mr Wallace said: 'I will keep the question of sending more defensive weapons to Ukraine under close review. I do not rule anything out within helping Ukraine deliver self-defence. The UK is determined to stand by Ukraine, its sovereignty and our mutual interests. We have been helping them build defensive capacity for eight years now and we decided to step up that assistance in light of Russian aggression. Britain stands by its allies.' Russia last night accused the UK of fuelling tensions in the region with the weapons deployment.

How Germany's greed for gas, and another grubby deal with Moscow, could plunge Europe into

MARK ALMOND: History teaches us that aggressors are emboldened when a blind eye is turned to the rights of weaker societies. It was exactly this kind of appeasement that nurtured and helped fuel Hitler's aggression. While Putin's Russia may not be a new Nazi Germany, it is hard to miss today's alarming parallels with the recent past. The West could inadvertently help ignite a new and devastating conflict should a ruthless Russian leader believe he can restore his country's imperial greatness without the risk of a wider war involving Ukraine's friends... No subject has the coalition German government at loggerheads more than the escalating crisis in Ukraine - and with it Germany's complicated relationship with Russia. At the heart of the dispute is Nord Stream 2, Russia's new gas pipeline running from Russia to Europe across the Baltic Sea: built, filled with gas but not yet approved for operation. If and when it is switched on, the pipeline will prove vital for German industry and heating the country's homes, but it will also increase Europe's reliance on Russian gas overall - a major concern to the U.S.

A spokesman for Mr Hayler told the Sun:  'Kieran is very saddened by these false allegations, and is happy to fully assist the police and co-operate fully to ensure he is quickly vindicated. But he is keen not to get into a public dispute and would prefer to rectify this matter with the police as quickly and calmly as possible, and continue to focus on his own life and future.'

Roseanne Barr's daughter lifts lid on 'R-rated' reality of her family's TV-perfect life

Jenny Pentland, 45, opened up about how the ABC series 'Roseanne' was based on her family in an excerpt from her new memoir, 'This Will Be Funny Later.' Her mother played Roseanne Conner, 'a prime-time friendly version of herself,' while her father was the inspiration for Roseanne's husband Dan. The characters of Becky, Darlene, and D.J. were based on Pentland, her sister Jessica, and her little brother Jake.

Watch the birdie! Endangered Philippine eagle chick is fed by a hand puppet designed to look like its parent in surreal footage from conservation centre

The seven-week-old eaglet, named Chick 29, is being cared for at the Philippine Eagle Center in Davao, Philippines and is being 'puppet reared' to help prepare the young bird of prey for the wild. Footage, taken on January 17, showed the white-feathered chick being fed from a pair of large tweezers through the mouth of the puppet.

Drunk Dukes of Hazzard wannabe JUMPS his car over a US motorway bridge... but gets it horribly wrong as he flips over on landing 

An unidentified Michigan man, 25, launched his car over a bridge that runs over US 131 on the afternoon of January 14, flipping it. The man drove up an embankment near exit 68 before dangerously launching his vehicle over the bridge, leaving behind what appears to be his front bumper. He was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Police have reported that the man was intoxicated at the time and would receive a medical evaluation and a blood test to confirm. Once the evaluation comes back, police will decide if they want to arrest and place charges on him.
