Boris Johnson
« on: January 19, 2022, 09:28:11 AM »
It would appear the wagons are circling.

Is he finished?

Sounds like PMQs could be entertaining today though I still can't bring myself to watch it as it will just be one lie after another.

2 more years til the next election is it? I’d say they’ll leave him another while, make him the fall guy and install someone new and promise to learn from mistakes etc and the public will lap it up.

He looked as if he knew the gig was up in that interview yesterday. The partying the night before Philips funeral really struck a cord with the British people and whilst I think the Sue Gray report won't sink him directly he won't last till March.

The local elections are in May and the Torys know they're way down in the polls so may need a bit of a bounce before May to get back up, so Sunak or Gove it is...

About 1/3 of Tory MPS were elected in 2019 and their level of loyalty to BJ is low.

But they're "f**kíng nobodies".

Couple that with the way Rees Mogg spoke about the leader of the Scottish Tory Party as a light weight then you'd wonder how these people got in the positions they do.

I suppose money always greases the palms in these circles.

11 letters of no confidence in apparently. Hopefully it's the end, though I'll believe it when I see it, but there's also the old be careful what you wish for because if he goes what's next probably won't be good.

They need 54 to kick anything off, numbers likely to be passed today if the papers are to be believed. But - it doesn't automatically trigger a Leadership contest, merely a vote of confidence. It depends on how much damage is inflicted in the VOC (secret ballot) to see if a Leadership contest will happen. He's definitely on very thin ice but he's a slippery hoor so you wouldn't know.

. An opinion poll highlighted the damage the “Partygate” row has done to the Conservative party’s standing with the public. Redfield and Wilton on Monday put Labour on 43 per cent, 13 points ahead of the Tories

Around 20 , mostly from Red Wall constituencies with low majorities

Would not like to meet any of the 25% or definitely not the 9% from Scotland.

Sure we would have the kind of % here, blind DUP voters who would follow him into the fires of hell, no matter how many times he f*$ked them over.

Another knife stuck in him at PMQ from "thick as mince" David Davis.
