    In a sense, that's the worst imaginable result for the Tories. They keep a dud leader, they are associated with his failures and crimes, and they have to explain why he stays in office.

    And at the same time, he's lost pretty much all his authority with his party as well as with the public.

    One instructive thought - I didn't hear Brady say 'no challenge for a year' the way he did three years ago.

    Internal party rules are open for revision.

    To take the flack for the upcoming election defeats?

    To try to hang on as PM longer than TM?

    Pretty good call though, Andy. Well done.

    Pretty good result for that SKS fellow too. All he has got to do now is avoid having his collar felt and he's laughing kitbags.

    How, without losing a confidence vote, is Boris now forced out as quickly as some of you suggesting?

    He’s not a resigner.

    So what happens to remove him this year?

    Nope, the locals were so bad in 2019 which forced May out (28% NEV and over 1000 seats lost) ironically the Tories may even make gains in next year's locals, securing Boris as leader and PM until the next general election in 2024

    Tiverton and Honiton is crucial.

    If CP wins, pressure will be off. If CP loses, 1922 will be badgered to change rules to allow another go at ousting him I suspect - but how can they when Johnson has the support of a decent majority of his MPs?

    They shot their bolt too early.

    Boris's priority now is to get the rebels back in the fold, by fair means or foul. I wonder when we'll hear the first rebel declare, 'Indeed. I had no confidence in the prime minister way back in June. But since then he's made a concerted attempt to right a lot of wrongs. I believe in giving people a second chance.'
  • kle4kle4 Posts: 81,241
    HYUFD is right, Boris is now safe.

    That is an awful lot of traitorous remoaners in the Tory ranks though, they should screen their candidates more.

    Time for SKS to call a vote of no confidence. Then watch the 148 squirm.

    Seems reasonable. A massive number have said they don't have confidence in him as party leader and PM, so he's justified in putting the question. It'd be lost of course, it's political theatre, but it's reasonable to get them to confirm they do have confidence in him after all, if the alternative is bringing him down alongside the opposition.

    He'll always be able to fill his Cabinet, there will always be people willing to take the role.

    Twice as many as a percentage voted against Corbyn in his Confidence vote and he was still able to fill his Shadow Cabinet with the likes of Keir etc who were willing to work with him despite that.

    It's just plain tacky. I have no idea if in their regular chats Boris and Zelensky have struck up a decent rapport, but at the end of the day what he wants and needs from a UK PM is as much support as humanly possible, and any UK politician besides Corbyn and his chums would offer that. There was no danger of Zelensky being inconvenienced.

    Surely the 1922 can only change the rules if a majority want it changing, which surely can't be met by the same people who voted against him today or submitted the letters against him already?

    The problem for Boris seems to possibly be a possible personal sanction vote following the Privileges Committee report? 148 against him today wasn't enough to oust him, but 148 voting with Labour and the rest of Parliament could be enough to suspend him from the House couldn't it?

    If the cabinet weren’t a collection of spineless wimps he would be getting his marching orders by Friday. Unfortunately enough of them are too supine to do anything about this as has been shown time and time again.

    As it stands then the next event in the calendar is the by elections. If they’re catastrophic then it might force further discussion at the 1922.

    I think Boris is brazen, but I’m not sure even he can fight on with that level of opposition for another 12 months. This is going to be a running sore.

    Of course, brilliant news for Labour every week that this drags on.

    Not least because Boris will likely find new ways to aggravate either Conservative MPs or the voters and certainly will not learn from his mistakes so will continue the old ways of aggravating either Conservative MPs or the voters.

    "draw the line. move on". Its painful, its pitiful, its high quality cabaret. Keep going luv
    I feel that we should defer to Michael Gove on the subject of lines.
    Govey moves on from the line. To the next line.

    The Tory MPs have nailed their colours to the mast, no-one can have any sympathy for them for what happens in the future.

    The LDs in T&H and Labour in Wakefield must be cracking open the bubbly tonight.

    Unless you are a nutcase like Dorries who couldn’t hope to have influence under another leader, why would an MP vote to keep Boris? It makes no sense.

    They have gratitude for the big 2019 win.
    They think anyone else would do worse or reverse on policies they like.
    They share the (ridiculous) view that voting against the leader is treachery.
    They think the party needs to unite, and know that won't happen if Boris goes (because Boris won't let it)

    Not all of these reasons are sensible or up to date of course.

    A better result for Johnson that I thought.

    Tiverton and Honiton is crucial.

    If CP wins, pressure will be off. If CP loses, 1922 will be badgered to change rules to allow another go at ousting him I suspect - but how can they when Johnson has the support of a decent majority of his MPs?

    They shot their bolt too early.

    Surely the 1922 can only change the rules if a majority want it changing, which surely can't be met by the same people who voted against him today or submitted the letters against him already?

    The problem for Boris seems to possibly be a possible personal sanction vote following the Privileges Committee report? 148 against him today wasn't enough to oust him, but 148 voting with Labour and the rest of Parliament could be enough to suspend him from the House couldn't it?
    Fuckin' 'ell it will be something if Tory MPs vote with the Opposition on such a vote. Surely not.

    Keir Starmer: "Conservative MPs made their choice tonight. They have ignored the British public and hitched themselves and their party firmly to Boris Johnson, and everything that he represents."

    The choice is clearer than ever before:
    Divided Tories propping up Boris Johnson with no plan to tackle the issues you are facing.
    Or a united Labour Party with a plan to fix the cost of living crisis and restore trust in politics.
    Labour will get Britain back on track."
