British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is facing opposition from lawmakers in his own Conservative Party.

On Tuesday, Johnson proposed legislation requiring vaccine passports, re-implementing face masks and mandating COVID vaccines for workers. The bills were all passed, but only with the support of the opposition Labor Party participating.

In the biggest rebellion since becoming prime minister in 2019, 60-100 members of Parliament (MPs) voted against proposals from different parties.

“I respect the feelings and concerns of my colleagues about restrictions on their liberties and human liberties, but I believe the approach we are taking is balanced. and proportionate and appropriate for this country,” Johnson said.

The uprising shows a huge rift in the ruling Conservative Party and the burnout of COVID measures in the UK
