MESSAGES of support for the Prime Minister Boris Johnson have been pouring out of Oxfordshire today.

Oxfordshire’s MPs of all political allegiances have sent their best wishes to the PM after he was transferred to intensive care while battling COVID-19 last night.

Layla Moran, Lib Dem MP for Oxford West and Abingdon, said her thoughts were with the prime minister and his partner Carrie Symonds, and ‘anyone with family members in intensive care.’

She said: “This must be so scary. I hope the Government can now stop this pretence that all is fine and concentrate on getting him well and reassure the country.”

She later wrote on Twitter: “There are no political parties tonight. Only bated breath and good wishes.”

Anneliese Dodds, Labour MP for Oxford East said she was really concerned to hear Mr Johnson had been admitted to intensive care.

She said: "I just want to wish him all the best, I really hope that he is going to be out of intensive care soon and that he'll make a full recovery."

Wantage MP David Johnston said he wished the PM 'a speedy and complete recovery'.

He added: "Whatever your politics, we all want to see our Prime Minister come through this as quickly as possible so he can continue to lead the country through the current crisis."

Henley MP John Howell simply said: “My thoughts and prayers are with Boris and his family.”

The Conservative politician succeeded Mr Johnson as the MP for Henley in 2008, when the now-PM started his job as mayor of London.

His message was echoed by fellow Conservative Banbury MP Victoria Prentis, who also said her thoughts and prayers were with Mr Johnson and Ms Symonds.

Witney MP Robert Courts described the PM as ‘the boss’ and said he was ‘the toughest of fighters and that is what we all need right now.’

The Tory MP added: “The fervent support and wishes of millions of people are with him tonight. Keep fighting PM.”

Former prime minister and Witney MP David Cameron also paid tribute to the PM.

He said: “Thinking of Boris Johnson and his family tonight. Get well soon. You are in great hands and we all want you safe, well and back in 10 Downing Street.”

The prime minister’s Oxford University college, Balliol, also made a statement in support of his recovery.

On Twitter, Balliol College said: “We wish the Prime Minister, the Rt Hon Boris Johnson MP (Balliol 1983), a speedy recovery from Covid-19.

“We send our very best wishes too to all members of the Balliol community and their families who are suffering from the virus.”

The Prime Minister was moved to intensive care last night after being admitted to hospital on Sunday.

On Monday, a No 10 spokesman said: "The PM is receiving excellent care, and thanks all NHS staff for their hard work and dedication."

The foreign secretary Dominic Raab will act as a deputy prime minister while Mr Johnson is ill, taking important decisions on behalf of the PM.
