MILLIONS of Brits will be plunged into draconian Tier rules after MPs voted by 291-78 to pass the rules - but Boris Johnson faced his biggest backbench rebellion yet.
55 Tory MPs voted against and 17 more abstained rather than support the Prime Minister in his biggest blow since last year’s Election.
Around 10 former ministers and several high profile Tories including Iain Duncan Smith, David Davis, Esther McVey and Jeremy Wright voted against.
Labour abstained on the move, prompting Mr Johnson to brand Sir Keir Starmer “absolutely invertebrate”.
But the win came at a cost to the PM of dozens of fuming backbenchers.
Tory MPs queued up to slam the restrictions in a testy six hour Commons session.
