MPs ‘plot to oust Boris Johnson’ - BBC Newsnight

  • Could the PM face a confidence vote in the coming days? Please subscribe HERE
    Boris Johnson has "categorically" denied he was warned a drinks party in the No 10 garden risked breaking lockdown rules.
    "Nobody warned me that it was against the rules," the prime minister said.
    Former aide Dominic Cummings says he warned the PM at the time, and has accused him of misleading MPs about it.
    Pressure is now mounting on the prime minister and there are reports the target of 54 letters to trigger a vote of confidence will be met in the coming days.
    Newsnight’s political editor Nick Watt reports. Kirsty Wark is joined by Conservative peer Lord Marland, Delyth Miles from Grassroots Conservatives and former Conservative cabinet minister David Gauke.

      @Ender666 congratulations to you, just so long as your doing ok then the rest of the world can go to hell. Let's hope you don't have to step over to many homeless sleepers when you have to go back to work, or accidentally end up thinking your queuing for the travel agents only to realise you have wasted your time, when you find out it's a queue for the food bank. Would hate anything to inconvenience you. You don't have blond scruffy hair as well do you?

    8:18 "When was the last time you were in contact with Boris Johnson?"
    "It doesn't matter whether I was in contact with Boris Johnson or not."

    The way this guy is defending the PM for his actions speaks more about the "us and them" attitude they have than it does about the actions of the PM. No, Number 10 is not an oppressive place to live. A homeless shelter is an oppressive place to live. A run down council house in a dangerous estate that is cold because the price of energy has gone up, is an oppressive place to live. a shop entrance where you might be lucky to get through the night without a drunk partygoer kicking you, is an oppressive place to live. Number 10 is a place that represents the seat of legislative power in the country. It is one of the least oppressive places to live, and for this guy to say something so absurd, in defence of the PM's flagrant breaches of his own rules just shows that he is part of the same wealthy club of people who simply think they are better than everyone else and therefore don't need to follow the same rules. Oh, right, this guy is a Lord, well that explains everything. There are so many things that need reforming in this great nation, the aristocractic class being the first.

    The Conservative “party”, like their PM, look shell shocked, and seem to think this will all blow over. There are people all over the UK who don’t normally give two hoots about politics who want Bojochio gone. He’s cost thousands of unnecessary deaths through incompetence, and dithering over what will keep him popular (that worked out well), put the public finances in disarray, presided over the worst possible Brexit (ill prepared, fantasists in charge of negotiations, etc), and putting the oh so wonderful “union” they’re supposed to care so much about in jeopardy. That they’ve shown utter contempt for the relatives and friends of those “bodies piled high” during the pandemic, I.e. the electorate, by turning No.10 into party central and then lied and lied and lied about is just the final straw.

      @colin stephenson It's a very interesting topic of discussion and I really think that parents and schools should be teaching our kids critical thinking. It's becoming increasingly important to teach the next generation HOW to think, not WHAT to think. Otherwise I agree with you, that the future could look really scary.

      @Churchy thanks for the reply, i have problems with morality and morals , a person can choose whatever morals they want and interpret them in whatever way it may suit themselves , alternative facts have become more acceptable as of late , it’s a kind of method that allows a person to tell Lies to suit their own narrative in an acceptable way , There’s quite a few things not being called out by what may be considered responsible people , groups, Media and organizations, i find the situation Scary , too many Lazy minded people are suffering from ‘ Hard Of Thinking “

      @colin stephenson Very true. When people refuse to acknowledge factual truths (as opposed to opinions) it leaves me feeling like I'm living in an alternate reality. Since when did facts become optional? Morality only happens when people have integrity and a conscience and it's quite apparent that Bog Job has neither.

Acting quickly and ruthlessly is what is needed and as a party they have always shown themselves willing to do the necessary when required.

    “In my mind, the most egregious and far-reaching mistake made in responding to the pandemic has been the level of fear willingly conveyed on the public,” wrote Ruda.
    “That fear seems to have subsequently driven policy decisions in a worrying feed-back loop,” he added, noting that such actions amounted to “state sanctioned propaganda.”
    The behavioral scientist said that an obsession with daily case numbers came to dominate thinking, serving to spread even more fear.
    That process included grossly exaggerating the threat posed by COVID and producing lurid, alarmist propaganda to frighten the population into subservience.

His arrogance has been apparent since he unlawfully prorogued parliament.

    68% percent of grass roots conservatives being opposed to Johnson resigning is an incredibly low number so close to the May local elections. The grass roots are supposed to be the very backbone of any political party and at the moment over 30% of the people who are supposed to be the strongest supporters of the party are actually wanting their in support of their leader resigner.
    It's exactly the same grass roots supporters of any of the parties that you need to have full support of going into local elections.
    Those numbers come directly from Delyth Miles and although her "leader" doesn't really set a good example in relation to honesty, I would assume that she's not going to be sitting there and lying about how badly her party is doing in terms of support approaching the coming election.
    Or at least if she was wanting to lie about how I think we'd all be safe in assuming that she'd lie to make it seem like they're doing better than they are rather than lie and make it seem like they're actually doing worse than they are.
    I've long despised Jonathan Marland and I feel this brief interview does a wonderful job of illustrating much of what disgusts me about him. Johnson is good at getting out of scrapes so he believes that he'll be able to work his way out of this one, which apparently isn't close to being his worst.
    It's shameful of him to dare to compare the value, the very humanity of Johnson to the people have given so very much for so little in the NHS.
    Do we want a crisis in the conservative party he asks? The conservative party has been a crisis ever since Johnson wangled his way into the role. So many in that party have quickly forgotten that Johnson fought against Britain leaving the European Union until he realised that it was the only chance that he ever had of becoming Prime Minister due to May failing to understand people and just like that, in an instant, those years of insisting that Britain must stay in the European Union vanished.
    I feel that alone is an excellent illustration of his selfishness.

    • Mr. Grumpy

      The 1922 committee is only relevant in to vote of no confidence though.
      Although that's still possible but my preferred choice would of course be what you suggest as Johnson himself is largely irrelevant in terms of politics.
      With yesterdays publication by the Chairman of Grassroots Conservatives certainly showing that Johnson not being willing to take the hit for his team will be far more costly for the party than something as tedious and safe as a vote of no confidence.
      There are now more than twice as many grass roots conservatives calling for him to go than there was for May in the same period when she kept getting things wrong.
      Of course, the local elections ARE purely grass roots support.
      I suppose the real advantage of a vote of no confidence for Johnson would be that it would likely get him back on Have I got News for You and he always seemed far better suited to the celebrity buffoon role.

      Unless there are enough letters to the 1922 committee there will be no vote of confidence and no leadership contest. In that case all BoJo has to do is instruct the civil servant ‘investigating’ him on the conclusions she should come up with and Bob’s your uncle.

    The issue with the conservative party is that people voted for hi tariffs on non staples from EU/ROW & no low human capital immigration to raise the capital labour ratio, productivity per person & average real wage so we can close our spending deficit & escape the national debt De@th spiral. BJ has acted as if the nation voted for the standard free trade of non staples & open borders that cruush average real wage and trap workers in the renter poverty trap Tories have always stood for. To achieve this he sent Truss out to strike new free trade deals that will expand the UK trade deficit, kept the goods free trade deficit with the EU & created huge loopholes that allow low human capital immigration while failing to prevent 'asylum seekers' leaving France for the UK.
    The UK can't afford to continue cruushing average real wage when people in full time work need food banks & wage subsidies to survive, when 1/3 of all UK children live in poverty, when tax revenue per person is so far below state spending per person that we run a £323b spending deficit but if we cut spending 130k people dye from the austerity cuts. I mean what the actual fudge is he thinking? We're rapidly heading towards depopulating creditor administration levels of national debt while he's pishing money up the wall on non productive military spending, a huge furlough handout to already well off workers (plus fraudsters) & a ridiculous amount of money on contracts for incompetent Tory lobbyists who cant even make a functional mobile app with £39b to spend. They should flay him alive with a rusty spoon for the British lives he's already cost with his personal greed at a time when there is zero room for waste, never mind oust him from leadership.
