Lawmaker in UK PM Johnson's party defects to opposition

A lawmaker in Boris Johnson's Conservative Party on Wednesday defected to the opposition, dealing a blow to the British prime minister as he faces a growing rebellion in his own ranks and demands for his resignation.

"I would like to welcome Christian Wakeford to the Labour Party," Keir Starmer, leader of the opposition Labour Party, said in a statement.
