UK Conservatives lose two by-elections, dealing blow to PM Johnson

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party was defeated in two parliamentary by-elections on Friday after a historic collapse in support. The losses suggest that the electoral coalition Johnson brought together at the 2019 national election may be fracturing after months of scandal and amid a growing cost-of-living crisis. Johnson has come under intense pressure to resign after he was fined for breaking Covid-19 lockdown rules.
