He kept his job, but his position was somewhat unacceptable: Boris Johnson sought to reverse the scandal by uniting a split party on Tuesday and tackling “critical” issues to win back the British.
The head of the British government escaped a no-confidence vote from representatives of his Conservative party on Monday, saying these parties in Downing Street were incited by insurgent-like scandals during his anti-Govt imprisonment.
Although he could not be targeted by another no-confidence motion for a year, his subtle task is to defeat his troops and voters, who, under current rules, have been burned to the ground by corruption and strangled by inflation, the worst in 40 years.
During the scheduled Cabinet meeting that day, he will recall his government’s priorities in the coming weeks: health, safety and the economy, amid the purchasing power crisis.
“This is a government that will achieve what is most important to the people of this country,” he said in line with his services. “We’re on the side of the hard-working Brits, and we’re going to work.”
Although he welcomed the “firm” decision in a secret ballot, more than four in ten MPs (148 out of 359 voters) in his camp said they did not trust him, reflecting the scale of the tragedy and the blow to his power. His majority.
In comparison, former Prime Minister Theresa May escaped a major departure from the no-confidence motion in May 2018, forcing her to resign a few months later.
As newspapers pointed out on Tuesday, Boris Johnson is in a critical condition.
The left-wing newspaper The Guardian spoke of “shame” under the headline “Injured Johnson is in danger”. On the Conservative side, The Telegraph says it is “a (trivial) victory that divides the Tories”.
Eager to regain his power, the 57-year-old leader is expected to reward his closest allies and oust his most staunch supporters, according to media reports.
Among the faithful, Justice Minister Dominic Robb called on the rebels to “respect the vote” and called for “moving forward” in echoing the Prime Minister’s message. “Renewed energy” after Boris Johnson won the “clear” vote, he told SkyNews.
But even if he survives, the damage will be “significant,” former Tory leader William Hague warned in the Times. “Irrevocable words were spoken, indelible statements were issued and the votes showed a greater level of rejection than ever before for a Tory leader.”
Unbelievable by the results of the referendum, the rebel MP Roger Gale said he would “look at the number of prime ministers with a sense of honor and accept the fact that he has lost the support of a significant section of his party and think about his position.” .
Studies and elections
Despite the relief of convincing the majority of Tory MPs, Boris Johnson did not end up with “partygate” consequences.
After an investigation by police and senior civil servant Sue Gray, another investigation is scheduled for parliament this time. If the latter, in the fall, decides that Boris Johnson has deceived the House of Commons by claiming he has not violated the rules, he must resign.
Both by-elections on June 23 will have test value for the conservative leader who rejected early legislative elections on Monday. Polls follow one another, causing catastrophe for the majority, who are not convinced that their leader, who will win the 2019 election, will be the best place to lead them to victory in the 2024 assembly elections.
