Latest by-election results: Boris Johnson braces for defeat as Wakefield and Tiverton results await


RObin Corden, 42, an account manager for a flooring company, had brought a banner to the tally of the Tiverton and Honiton by-elections which read: ‘The party is above the Prime Minister.’

He told the Press Association: “I think the greased piglet that is our Prime Minister was very happy to have the vote of confidence ahead of the two by-elections here and in Wakefield.

“Many more backbench MPs would have voted without confidence had they witnessed the election annihilation that took place today.”

Mr Corden added: ‘Boris Johnson grew up not far from here in Winsford (Somerset), we in the Vale of Exe, which has such beautiful orchards, feel embarrassed to have produced such a rotten apple.’

Asked if he believed the Tories had really suffered ‘annihilation’, Mr Corden replied: ‘I hope so, I am a Green and voted tactically.’

He continued: “I decided I couldn’t live with myself if I woke up tomorrow morning and the Tories had won by a very narrow margin, so I gave up my political loyalties to send a message to the Conservatives that their days are numbered.”
