Facts

Nadine Dorries claimed that Mr Johnson "has the confidence of the country." A poll carried out by Savanta five days earlier in the wake of the publication of the Sue Gray report showed that 65% of Britons wanted Boris Johnson to resign.

Verdict

Dorries’ claim that Boris Johnson "has the confidence of the country" was the latest of a long series of fabrications and false statements from the Culture Secretary.

We approached Nadine Dorries' office and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport to give her a chance to comment, but received no response.
