No confidence: now 20+ letters against Johnson are said to have come in

Coward: Boris Johnson hid in a fridge once to evade difficult questions. Now he is resorting to flat-out lies.

The tide of scepticism in Boris Johnson’s ability to continue as prime minister continues to build – it is now believed that more than 20 letters of ‘no confidence’ have been received by the Tory backbench 1922 Committee chairperson.

But does it mean anything? Around 54 or 55 letters are needed to reach the threshold for a vote. Clare Hepworth, below, doesn’t think it will happen:

The markets are already spooked though – by Johnson’s policies and behaviour.

The FTSE is one of the worst-performing major stock markets in the world – if not the worst.

Tory MPs – many of whom are company shareholders on the side, and many of whom (as we’ve seen) have been funnelling public money into their own businesses by dodgy means – may consider Johnson’s removal to be necessary in order to give the markets the bounce they need.

Remember: Johnson is the prime minister who once, memorably, said: “F*** business!”

It wouldn’t surprise This Writer if his businesspeople MPs decided to f*** him over instead.
