NO.10 in chaos! Prime Minister Boris faces the risk of being overthrown at any time

Tory MP Tobias Ellwood, who submitted a letter of no-confidence against the Prime Minister in 1922, this week called for a "pause" of 'Partygate' hostilities in celebration of the Year. Saint Platinum. That is why BORIS JOHNSON could face a vote of confidence "by chance", it has been warned, amid calls for a so-called "holiday ceasefire". He told Times Radio that, because of the heated rhetoric surrounding the subject, "perhaps we should pause." Thom Brooks, Professor of Law and Government, complained in a Twitter post: "Instead of focusing on the Platinum Jubilee, Conservative MPs are conspiring against each other." But the plot seems to continue, despite reports of the campaign to oust Mr Johnson being mixed. It is understood that some Tory MPs are waiting until the celebrations are over to send a letter to Sir Graham Brady, who chairs the party's committee. Fifty-four letters are required to trigger a vote of confidence. One MP told the Guardian he wanted Mr Johnson to quit but had encouraged colleagues to retract their letter to avoid triggering an "accidental" vote as early as next Monday or Tuesday. More than 45 Conservative MPs have publicly questioned the prime minister's ability to take over, but less than 20 have reportedly sent a letter. They added that it was worth the wait until after two by-elections to be held on June 23, which would help MPs gauge the public's mood. Some fear that potential candidates to replace the Prime Minister are not yet ready to launch their campaigns and could still lose a leadership election. A source told the Guardian that Cabinet ministers were "all too scared" of a leadership race because Mr Johnson had them "wrapped around their fingers". In a message seen by the newspaper, MP Andrew Bridgen is said to have said: "The Prime Minister may win, but the number of votes against him will be larger than he expected as this is a vote. private." Commerce Secretary Penny Mordaunt is being discussed the possibility of replacing the Prime Minister, according to the Times. Bow Group chairman Ben Harris-Quinney said, for many, the bigger issue was the fact that the Prime Minister and his Government were "operating far to Blair's left". “It is quite simply not a Conservative Government and not a Brexit Government,” he said. "That's why those who voted into government are calling for one last time a Conservative Party that refuses to learn the lesson - that when people vote Conservative, they expect conservatism." Foreign Secretary Liz Truss and Defense Secretary Ben Wallace, who topped the latest Conservative Party favorites poll while Mr Johnson came last, are also seen as potential leaders if the Prime Minister removed from Number 10. The letters are being sent in response to 'Partygate', following the conclusion of an investigation by the Metropolitan Police and senior civil servant Sue Gray into rule-breaking in Downing Street. But outside of Westminster, some insist that voters are more concerned with Mr Johnson's handling of policies than partisans during the pandemic.
