London, Sep 4: Britain Prime Minister Boris Johnson lost the majority in House of Commons on Tuesday after a Member of Parliament left Conservative and joined Liberal Democrats.

Philip Lee, an MP of Conservative took his seat on the opposition benches as the PM addressed the Commons, BBC reported.

In a letter to the prime minister, Mr Lee said the Conservative Party "had become a narrow faction in which one's Conservatism is measured by how recklessly one wants to leave the European Union".

Speaking in the Commons, Mr Johnson told MPs, he wanted a negotiated exit from the EU and insisted there was "real momentum" behind the talks.

Even after three years since the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union in a referendum, the outcome of the Brexit crisis remains uncertain. Till yet no deal has been finalised even as the final date, October 31 to leave the EU, is fast approaching. (UNI)
