This is how it will probably play out.  He will say I am very sorry for being a c**t and see if he can ride it out.  

Tories won't want him to go right now if it can be avoided with a messy public enquiry on covid inbound is my thinking.  But if he can't recover they will knife him 

Problem is that he lied to parliament about not going to a party. If he admits that, he cant survive

I think most of the time he was in reference to the ones over Christmas. He always denied him attending the Christmas ones but never said nothing about the May one and that's because he was there and there's probably proof that he's aware of. The big question will be if there's proof he knew the Christmas parties were happening. If this comes out, then he'd be lying to parliament.

Whether you link the May to the Christmas parties or not his attendance a one shows he knew these events were happening, hence he's caught lying. He must be bricking himself now Starmer's back!

The Tories know Boris is living on borrowed time. The question  for them is when the heirs apparent wish to put the knife in. They will want to ride on the winds of the successful vaccination program but be fearful of headwinds of bad news coming this spring.

Johnson rarely apologises let alone offering a sincere one but he’ll get away with it because that’s what happens. Although if he apologises he essentially admits he lied to the Commons…

 

How come other people had to resign over this but precious Johnson can keep his job?

Weirdest one is that Allegra resigned over joking about a party but no one who attended or hosted the gatherings has done anything?

I'm guessing that whoever is next in line is likely shitting themselves about what Cummings has on them, though. There's probably things most of the Cabinet have done at this rate. It would be hard to position yourself in opposition to Boris if you'd been shown to do the same.

Excited for PMQs anyway, even though it will inevitably be disappointing.

Does seem a bit odd that Cummings tried to bring Johnson down by blogging comments he allegedly made, but never mentioned the many blatant breaches of restrictions.

Feels like he was biding his time for some reason? 

Yeah, even when he was releasing information last year, it was clear that he was drip feeding it for his own purposes, and so it's not at all surprising he kept back a bombshell or two.
