Seeing PMQ was a must see for political anoraks because Boris Johnson’s inability to lie straight in a bed is getting to him, to be honest hiding in a fridge today would have caused him less of a hardship, his unapologetic was bad, but it was a response to a Sir Keir story Starmer about someone whose father died during the pandemic and Boris Johnson’s answer included that the UK is the fastest growing economy in the G7, a completely deaf answer.
At the PMQ, Sir Keir Starmer called for the resignation of Boris Johnson, who is Starmer playing the long game, it is unlikely that the Tory MPs will oust Boris Johnson because it would give Sir Keir so much credibility and power that he has forced the exit of a Prime Minister.
LOTOs generally only oust prime ministers through general elections, so this would be a Neville Chamberlain moment, a great irony for Boris Johnson, who wanted to be Churchill. But in keeping Boris Johnson in office, I suspect Sir Keir and Labor will spend a great deal of time between now and the next general election reminding the electorate in those constituencies that their Tory MP did not oust Boris Johnson, but kept him in office. can. Given the prime minister’s current ratings, they are likely not optimal for Conservative MPs.
I believe Boris Johnson is safe unless Sue Gray’s report explicitly accuses Boris Johnson of knowingly breaking the rules. With Dick’s boss from The Met, I also don’t expect that to cause Boris Johnson too much trouble, but if The Met investigates, that may give Boris Johnson more time, as MPs won’t want to get ahead of a police investigation and possible trial. .
The reality is that we have a Prime Minister who needs an investigation to find out if he attended a party in his backyard in charge of our nuclear weapons, what a time to be alive.
