A YouGov poll for The Times shows that 34 per cent of voters would back the Tories, up two points in a week.

This is the highest since March 25, four days before the Brexit deadline Theresa May missed, which triggered a sharp drop in support. The Tories have a 12-point lead over Labour on 22 per cent. The Liberal Democrats are on 17 per cent — down three points in a week — losing all of the gains since the European parliament elections in May. The Brexit Party is on 13 per cent and the Greens 8 per cent.

With 40 per cent of votes, Mr Johnson was backed to be the best prime minister and 20 per cent backed Jeremy Corbyn. The survey was carried out on Tuesday and yesterday, before and after the prorogation announcement.
