Liz Truss will vote against Rishi Sunak’s new Brexit deal this afternoon as the Tory rebellion facing the Prime Minister over his Windsor Framework continues to grow.
A source close to the former premier said Ms Truss will oppose Mr Sunak’s deal with the EU, joining Boris Johnson who has already announced that he will be voting against it.
Meanwhile, Priti Patel, the former home secretary, and Sir Iain Duncan Smith, the Tory former leader, are also going to vote against the framework. Tory Brexiteer MPs now believe the revolt against Mr Sunak could be in the mid-20s.
The framework should still clear the Commons with relative ease because Labour has committed to backing the Government.
However, if the Tory rebellion is large enough to require the Prime Minister to rely on opposition MPs to get his deal through it would represent a damaging blow to Mr Sunak’s premiership and take some of the shine off his framework.
