The Tory party has been warned it is “sleepwalking to a defeat at the next election” unless it dumps Boris Johnson after two disastrous by-election defeats.

Conservative peer Gavin Barwell, who was Theresa May’s chief of staff in Downing Street, urged other cabinet members to follow the lead of Oliver Dowden who resigned as party chairman in the wake of losses to Labour in Wakefield and a massive defeat in Tiverton and Honiton to the Lib Dems.

Johnson loyalist Dominic Raab attempted to rally support for the Prime Minister who faces a backlash from Tory MPs while he is abroad.READ MORE:Boris Johnson vows to 'keep going' after double by-election humiliationSpeaking from Rwanda, where he is at a Commonwealth conference, Johnson said that he will “listen” to voters but vowed to “keep going”.Raab described the Conservative party losses in the by-elections being the result of a “perfect storm”.Speaking on the Today programme on BBC Radio 4, he said: “My view is that the by-elections, both of them, were the result of the perfect storm of very difficult local scenarios, given the situations of the previously sitting Conservative MPs, plus the national headwinds, first of all, inevitably, for a mid-term government, but also, frankly, the distractions that we’ve had.“I think the Prime Minister put it well: we need to listen very carefully, we need to take that feedback.“I think with Tiverton, the most striking thing is how many of our supporters didn’t come out.
