"Some people say that you're a nine-lived cat. How many years have you lived? Boris Johnson, a British journalist with all British humor, was launched to him. After the victory claimed by the head government in the vote to no confidence by his parliamentary deputies, we could answer at least one.
A narrower victory than Theresa May's just before her departure... and with the exact same gap as Margaret Thatcher, a few short days before she was forced to leave: More than 41.2% Conservative MPs (148 out 359) voted against him.
Boris Johnson and his family displayed their "serenity", after a "convincing", vote, on Monday at 10 p.m., while showing tense faces. Johnson will likely make many announcements regarding international travel and international travel over the next few days. He is expected to announce the following: Thatcher's right-to-buy policy extension, joint speech with Rishi Sunak on economy, trip to Rwanda to meet Commonwealth leaders, and then to Germany and Spain for NATO and G7 summits.
The narrow victory of Johnson demonstrates the weak support of Conservative Party MPs. He was 32 votes shy of the 148 "rebels", who were trying to remove a leader who was more troublesome than popular. Johnson will be granted a small consolation: The deputies will have to wait for a year before they can launch a new vote in no confidence.
Boris Johnson's winning machine is gone: The charismatic, whimsical, and battle-ready fifties, who were elected Prime Minister in July following the defeat of Theresa May, gave his Conservative party an historic victory in the legislative election.
Boris Johnson was first confronted with his controversial management in the Covid-19 pandemic two and a quarter years later. Today, it is illustrated in a series scandals, including "partygate", which refers to parties that were organized at 10 Downing Street during successive confinements.
The police concluded that he had "broken the law", which is unusual for a sitting prime Minister. An extremely harsh administrative investigation revealed the poor culture at Downing Street and blaming it.
Can he enjoy at least popular support? Boris Johnson was even booed at Queen Elizabeth II's jubilee celebrations. According to the latest YouGov survey, his popularity rating has dropped from 66% to 26% in April 2020 to just 26% today. 60% of Britons believe he should resign today.
Boris Johnson refuses to accept the challenge: Boris Johnson, still possessed with incredible self-assurance and he claims he is "absolutely convinced" he will remain Prime Minister in six more months.
The thorny issues surrounding Covid-19 and the war in Ukraine have allowed British politics, which is a terrible child, to derail the forecasts and even repel the threat. After long weeks of simmering, the motion of no confidence was made immediately following the close of the jubilee.
Johnson's successive defeats in local elections makes him seem like a loser: regardless of the topic (inflation and immigration, taxes housing, economy, transport, Brexit, education crime, environment ), a majority consider Johnson to be a stern government. The highest level of dissatisfaction with inflation in 40 years is attained by 74%.
Johnson must resist the pressure of ambient discontent, his potential successors' ambitions and the management of the burning files if a new motion of confidence is not possible for one year.
Start with home affairs. He must remember the priorities of his government in the middle of a buying power crisis, which are "health, security, and the economy".
This government achieves the most important things for the citizens of this country. We are on the side the hardworking Brits, and we will get to work
The British government will be in London on Tuesday
The British press is not afraid to use shocking phrases and considers Johnson injured and in danger (The i Paper), or that Johnson has been "humiliated" (The Guardian). The Telegraph reports that Tory headlines include a "paltry victory" that divides the Tories.
Johnson: What can he do? Restructure his government to reward his closest allies and expel his most lukewarm followers, provided he achieves purchasing power results: diplomatic successes, particularly in Ukraine, won't be enough to restore Johnson's authority.
Boris Johnson is not done with "partygate", so a parliamentary investigation must conclude in the fall after the conclusion of the administration and police investigations. He will be forced to resign if she believes the Prime Minister is misleading the House of Commons.
Johnson has ruled out early legislative elections and two by-elections on June 23 will test Johnson. His troops are not convinced that Johnson is best placed to win the 2024 legislative elections.
