The plot thickens. Now Johnson and cabal accused, by a tory MP, of blackmail. Threats to out stories and withhold cash from constituencies.

Getting messy.

Cummings probably handed it to her on a plate.

It now depends what she does with it and whether there's a direct link to ballbag Boris.

I read yesterday she was going to interview Cummings. I wonder was it him. I'm sure it was.

This seems more like a spur-of-the-moment thing, a strategy to shore up support for BJ from the back-benches. Doubt it has anything to do with Cummings.

Those who wouldn't survive under anyone else will stay with him. Dorries is a complete balloon and a hateful one at that.

That select committee meeting and Dorries talking about Channel 4 / the BBC? ... Was actually beyond belief that these people Worm their way into positions of power

MPs said Johnson had bought himself a reprieve until next week, when an inquiry into the “Partygate” scandal involving Downing Street events that broke coronavirus restrictions will conclude.

With some of his critics in the party pushing for a vote of no confidence in him, Johnson attempted to rally support by ending all remaining Covid restrictions in England, including mandatory face masks and working from home guidance.

The Times hinting that Gray's report may not exonerate BJ. Next week will be interesting again if it's released then.

What percent of people in the world would have resigned by now? About 99?

This clown isn't resigning and will have to be pushed.

Turkeys wouldn't vote for xmas, so can't see BJ voting himself out either.

This is unfair on turkeys BTW as they are useful

 It all to do with the language Sue Grey uses if it leaves wiggle room for BJ and his lackies to argue about. May have broken, could haves, won't mean anything to them it needs to unequivocal, do you actually think this will happen? Time will tell

Steve Baker (a real right-wing whacko) calling it "checkmate" for Boris; so entertaining to see the internecine fighting among themselves.

Absolutely not. It's basically a case of whether someone who wants to stab him in the back can get enough of an army to oust him.

The opponents seem to have run out of momentum yesterday. Maybe Cummings can rustle up something for the Sunday papers. Johnson is still on a bit of a shaky scraw.
