We ALL know what he did but since the MAJORITY know they themselves broke or ignored some of the rules at times, the MAJORITY of the public would rather concentrate on more important matters. Before they voted for him as PM in massive numbers, everyone was aware, or should have been, that he was of questionable character so it’s a bit rich complaining about it now. The fact is that people voted for him because of his track record of getting projects done. It’s a bit like the garden bridge which people like to hold against him. Stupid and expensive idea of course but hardly the crime of the century. People voted for Boris to get Brexit done, to level up the U.K. He got Brexit done but has been hammered like no other PM since by factors outside of his control. If he can aid Ukraine in fighting off the Russians, alleviate the suffering caused by the energy costs and in his last two years in charge deliver many of the plans in place to create jobs in the North and Midlands on the levelling up agenda, by the time the next election comes round, the majority will have forgiven if not forgotten all this Partygate stuff. They say a week is a long time in politics so two years is a lifetime and more than enough for BoJo to turn this around.
Mate - they're not MY headlines - it's what the papers are saying.
And the latest polls show that 58% of all voters think both Johnson and Sunak should resign, only 27% don't
think Johnson is a liar (they think "he was misleading but did not deliberately lie") Analysis of the polls by party shows that a third of Tory voters think they should go.
But it also means there is a substantial chunk of Tories who believe Johnson is a liar, but still want him to stay as leader which is a sad indictment of where the Tory party is at. I guess you're in that group?
As I keep saying, he won't be going yet, especially as the Tory party is pulling out all the stops to block the parliamentary investigation.
We'll see how things stand after he gets more fines and the local elections have taken place.
Boris may be staying for now, but the pressure won't be going away any time soon, especially as he can't stop f****** up.
