Boris Johnson Survives No Confidence Vote: 211-148

The New York Times reports:

Prime Minister Boris Johnson survived a dramatic no-confidence vote on Monday, a too-close-for-comfort result that leaves him badly wounded and sets off a volatile period in British politics as he fights to stay in power and fend off potential challengers in his Conservative Party.

The vote, 211 to 148, fell short of the simple majority of Tory lawmakers needed to oust Mr. Johnson as party leader. But it laid bare how badly his support has hemorrhaged since last year, when a scandal erupted over reports that he and his aides threw parties at 10 Downing Street that violated the government’s lockdown rules.
