From fridges to Kigali...

The day before the 2019 general election, Boris Johnson made headlines by 'hiding in a fridge' in Pudsey to avoid a TV interview. Today he's is seeking distraction from party wobbles in rather hotter climes.

For the usual suspects, who have already called for Boris Johnson to go, these votes have solidified their view.

But the ones to watch are those who have so far, publicly, been loyal but are now weighing up their options.

I understand PM has been in touch with senior members of his cabinet this morning as - I’m told - he regularly is. Seemingly no wobbles from No 10 team here in Kigali - PM was up & about exercising as usual & no plans to cut short trips to CHOGM, G7 & NATO

New: The Prime Minister says: 'It's absolutely true we've had some tough by-election results, they've been, I think, a reflection of a lot of things, but we've got to recognise voters are going through a tough time at the moment.
