Boris Johnson Prime Minister


Recommended Posts

Just looking at the current views on the ins and outs of an October election and saw this

 

"Case, who worked as Private Secretary to Prince William before being given his big promotion by Johnson, knows whereof he speaks. Asked by committee chairman William Wragg if he would be “uncomfortable if a Prime Minister capriciously requested of Her Majesty a Dissolution”, Case replied: “It would be quite wrong for the Prime Minister to put the sovereign in a difficult position constitutionally.”

- Waugh

 

WTFleck?

Have they forgotten Johnson unlawfully proroguing Parliament already?

- Case spouting johnsonisms through his teeth it seems

If they are Johnsonites, they could well be lying ......

... or Johnsons spokesperson lying about them saying it

 

Can't trust a word any of the cabinet or the Johnsonite spads/Senior civil servants say.

Johnson on pincher (demonstrating his bare faced gall and utter inability to learn any lessons or change) :

Sorry - its now clear he wasn't going to learn any lessons and he wasn't going to change

 

 

Is that even nut nut briefing against him that the pincher should never have been promoted. ... LOL

So far all the nonentities have pledged to stay. About half a dozen haven't pronounced yet, Gove is one.

 

Ladbrokes have suspended betting on how long Johnson lasts and it's 7-1 there's an election this year.

I'm certain Johnson will try to call a general election when all else has failed, there will be massive efforts by the Tory party to prevent that.

Would be surprised if Boris is not gone by the end of this week. 

 

There may be other resignations in the pipeline from ministers and Tory backbenchers are probably now looking at who will replace Boris.

We could do with some help from you.

I don't know if it will be that fast, UB, but I'm happy to be proved wrong.

 

From Peston just now.

. has just gone into No10. The expectation is that he will be appointed Chancellor. Presumably, on the basis of what@Jacob_Rees_Mogg just said, the deal is he has to go against Treasury advice and reverse the rise in corporation tax

That'll be interesting, TJ.

 

They were onto this very quickly, weren't they? I could be wrong but I don't remember replacements for important positions being announced this fast.

Interesting point:

There are statements about the 1922 committee 'elections in a few weeks 'allowing' a change to the rules to allow a second no confidence, with Bridgen saying he will force it.

.. not clear on this, but didn't the the 1922 committee threaten a change of rules against May to force her out after having a vote the results of which wasn't released and wouldn't be if she resigned (not that Johnson would)?

 

.. so why wait? Too many Johnson loyalists?

Quite a few PPSs are resigning. Is this so they can vote in a 1922 committee vote next week?

 

But I suppose if they're replaced by people like my 2019 intake MP who seems desperate to keep in with No10, then that neutralises things. I don't think it's right for the government payroll to outnumber backbenchers, it certainly skews any 1922 vote.

Read a funny comment online about Boris, who is a great admirer of Churchill.

 

"Less Churchill, more like Benny Hill" !

 

I can see political broadcasts in the pipeline by opposition parties showing videos with Boris being a clown, with the Benny Hill theme tune playing in the background.

I don't suppose the greased piglet cares, as long as he can stay in Downing Street. Sterling slid yesterday and it's thought it's unlikely to recover until he's gone.

 

Even though hardly anyone at home or abroad trusts him he's determined to cling on. His reputation when he eventually goes is going to be terrible.

None of the pundits are speculating over how long Johnson might take to go, even though any other PM would have. Here are Martin Kettle's thoughts on it.

just to simplify the sunak not resigning for Johnson issue

 

1. Does anyone really think Johnson would resign if every single one of his ministers resigned? Some are already well in his pocket so there would be always be some remaining.

or would he just replace any who did and carry on regardless?

 

2. Does anyone think sunak stayed because of some (however twisted) sense honor or duty to the position or the government?

or because it was in his own interests (one or both of: his choice to complete some 'projects for his own or pals intterests, or forced via further leak threats or some such)?

It looks as if you could be right, UB. There seem to be eight or 10 cabinet ministers, I've lost track, waiting for him at No10 to tell Johnson to go.

 

This is what Peston thinks on Twitter.

 

Many in the cabinet has come to the view that the government “is not working” under Johnson. Several are now telling me they will tell him to go, in a few moments, they do not expect him to quit, so want a “process” to get him out. This is a full scale crisis

 

And the 1922 committee has decided not to change the rules but is having elections next week.

Including his new chancellor LOL

 

Also rumors that the existing 1922 committee has changed its rules .. perhaps due to an actual majority of letters of no confidence

 

.. all we need is a recall from his constituency seat for 3/3

I think that at the very least, Brady is giving Johnson the same options he gave May
