The uproar over the No 10 lockdown parties leads most front pages for another day. The Daily Mirror is one of several papers to report on a group of Tory MPs who are plotting Boris Johnson’s downfall. The rebellion – nicknamed the “pork pie plot” because one of the Tories involved is the MP for Melton Mowbray – means Mr Johnson’s premiership is “in the balance”, the paper says. It quotes one Tory as saying: “His time has gone.”

The Times also reports on the “growing revolt” of 20 Tory MPs. The group – who won their seats at the last election – are preparing to submit letters of no confidence this afternoon after Prime Minister’s Questions, the paper says. One cabinet source tells the Times that it is “pretty sickening”, adding: “They were only elected because of [Boris Johnson]. It’s nuts,” says the source. Mr Johnson held meetings with some of the 2019 intake last night, the Times adds as MPs ‘plotting Johnson’s demise’,

The Guardian also says the mood of Tory MPs is “hardening” against Mr Johnson and there is open talk of how to oust him and who should replace him. The paper calls the PM’s interview yesterday “disastrous” and quotes one frontbencher as saying: “The mood has turned dramatically. He’s in real trouble.” The inquiry from Sue Gray is due to report back next week, the paper adds.

The Daily Mail accuses the Red Wall Tory MPs of “panicking” and turning on the man who got them elected. It reports that the group discussed submitting letters of no confidence to the 1922 committee en masse today. Ministers are outraged, the Mail says – saying that the rebellion comes as Covid curbs are about to end and figures are showing a “post-Covid jobs miracle”.

For the Daily Express, the whole situation is a sorry state of affairs. It says Mr Johnson apologised a total of 10 times during an interview about the party row on Tuesday.

The Metro also focuses on Mr Johnson’s interview when he denied he was warned the No 10 garden party might break the rules. Its headline quotes the PM as saying: “Nobody told me it was against the rules.” The paper adds that Mr Johnson also appeared “close to tears” as he publicly apologised to the Queen over other events held on the eve of the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral.

But the Daily Telegraph says Mr Johnson’s denial did not explicitly rule out the possibility that he may have been aware of concerns about the gathering before it went ahead. Looking ahead to today’s announcement on Covid rules, the Telegraph reports that the PM is set to lift Plan B measures including the guidance to work from home – although some mask-wearing rules could remain.

The Daily Star’s take on the story – which it calls a “pants on fire crisis” – portrays Mr Johnson as Pinocchio. The PM says he did not know he had broken lockdown party rules “even though he made the actual rules”, the paper says. “Then his day got even worse,” it adds, citing comments from “brainless” Justice Secretary Dominic Raab and Chancellor Rishi Sunak who did not unequivocally back him.

The i newspaper also picks up on the reaction from Mr Johnson’s colleagues – calling Mr Sunak’s endorsement “lukewarm”, and reporting that Jeremy Hunt did not rule out a run for the party leadership.

The Sun also references the “pork pie plot” to oust Mr Johnson on its front page. But its top story is on showbiz rather than politics, reporting that Strictly dancer Nadiya Bychkova has split from her fiance.

And the announcement that Microsoft is planning to buy major games company Activision Blizzard in a deal worth $75bn (£55bn) makes the top story for the Financial Times. It’s the biggest ever deal by the tech company, the FT points out. Shares in other game publishers increased sharply amid expectations of more deals in the sector.

Many of the papers make grim reading for the prime minister. 

There is derision from some for his continued insistence in an interview yesterday that he was unaware he was doing anything wrong when he went to a drinks gathering in the Downing Street garden during the first lockdown. 

“No one warned me party was against the rules, says man who set the rules,” is the headline for the Independent.

The Daily Star echoes that view and carries a mocked up front-page picture of Boris Johnson as Pinocchio with a nose so long it almost stretches the width of the front page.

Most of the other titles focus on the growing rebellion Mr Johnson is facing from within his own party. 

“What a sorry state! New MPs plot to oust PM” is the Daily Express’s headline, as it points out that opposition to the prime minister appears to be concentrated in the 2019 intake of Tory MPs. 

The Daily Mail suggests the sentiment among some Mr Johnson loyalists is “fury” at what’s become known as the “pork pie plot” because one of the MPs involved represents Melton Mowbray. 

The Financial Times describes Downing Street as being “nervous” about a possible “northern rebellion”. 

But it also quotes an unnamed cabinet minister who says of the plotters: “They are inexperienced. It won’t amount to much.”

That assessment is contradicted by an unnamed 2019 Tory MP, quoted by the Daily Telegraph, who attended a rebel meeting. 

They tell the paper: “Did everyone talk about being angry? Yes. Do people think this is potentially terminal? Yes. Are there people looking to move? Of course they are.”

Boris Johnson is likely to face more questions about his leadership at Prime Minister’s Questions later

The Daily Mirror says Mr Johnson’s premiership is “in the balance.” But it quotes another unnamed Tory who is even blunter. “His time has gone,” they say.

The Telegraph says the prime minister is set to announce the lifting of England’s Plan B Covid restrictions today. 

It says the cabinet will approve plans to scrap work from home guidance and Covid passports – though some mask wearing will be retained. 

The Times says the prime minister is preparing to declare “the end of coronavirus restrictions”. 

It reports local Covid testing centres will start to shut from spring, both to save money and as part of a long-term strategy of “living with the virus.”

The Guardian focuses on a report by the Commons Public Accounts Committee which suggests rural areas are being “left behind” in the rollout of next-generation-speed broadband. 

It says 150,000 homes have been deemed too expensive to connect to the network. 

And finally, the Times – among others – reports on some of the latest musings of the lead singer of one of most successful bands of recent times – Bono. 

The frontman of U2 has revealed he dislikes most of the band’s songs, his own voice – and even the band’s name. 

Bono says he and his bandmates had originally hoped U2 would sound “futuristic…like a spy plane” but says it turned out to “imply acquiescence”. 

“No”, he says, “I don’t like that name.”
