The Covid Recovery Group and other Tory tribes – A guide | Lucy Fisher analysis

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “The Covid Recovery Group and other Tory tribes – A guide | Lucy Fisher analysis” – below is their description.

Boris Johnson is facing severe pressure from many quarters as he charts a path out of lockdown from the coronavirus pandemic – most worryingly from his own backbenchers.

That’s according to The Telegraph’s Deputy Political Editor Lucy Fisher.

As part of a new video series, Westminster Source, she says the backbenchers are “surgical in their approach, highly organised [and] are actually inflicting defeats and forcing u-turns on the government”.

She adds: “As one senior Conservative said to me just last week, there’s a real sense in the party that MPs are grumpy and disconnected, and it’s in that stage when people can start to organise behind the scenes.”

Watch the video above to see Lucy Fisher’s breakdown of the various Tory tribes – including the Covid Recovery Group – and how they could harm the government’s attempt to get through a packed policy proposal suite.
