Wycombe residents are "60 to one against the Prime Minister", MP Steve Baker has said, amid ongoing fury surrounding lockdown parties at Number 10.

The Wycombe MP told reporters on Monday it was "impossible to say" if Boris Johnson would lead his party into the next general election amid a situation as "volatile" as this, adding that he would "still prefer if Boris Johnson were a roaring success" but thinks people may be "too angry to forgive".

He described his constituents as "absolutely furious". "My constituents at the moment are about 60 to one against the Prime Minister," Mr Baker said, according to the BBC.

"I've listened very carefully to members of my [Conservative Party] association, too. There are some very strident voices in my constituency demanding that I support the Prime Minister.

"What I would say is I made my view very clear at the beginning of December: that there must be one rule for all."

A string of allegations of Covid lockdown rule-breaking parties are adding pressure on Mr Johnson, who is facing calls to resign from some Tory MPs amid widespread voter anger at reports that the rules were flouted by Number 10.

Mr Baker said: "People are very upset and angry. I spoke to a man this morning whose wedding plans were very much scaled down, and he didn't mind that, but he does mind what he described as hypocrisy and he was extremely angry."

The MP would not comment on whether or not he was one of the Tory MPs who have apparently submitted around 20 letters of no confidence in the PM's leadership.

He said Conservative MPs are "mostly waiting" for top civil servant Sue Gray's investigation to be published to see what she says before condemning the Prime Minister.
