never mind the bollocks...so the thinking is that the letters to Brady reaches 54 this week Johnson has more of a chance of winning a confidence vote than if happens after big defeat in byelections on 23rd....so if you really want Johnson gone then got to hope doesn't reach the magic 54 this week...maybe better for labour that he stays in place though?

he's walking toast as soon as those byelections happen, he won't be deposed as things stand as no one is running a campaign to replace him, rishi and spelling mistake are most likely.

yeah, but if confidence is before byelection he'll likely win and stay in place forever.

Given this is straight after a Tory MP called for the UK to rejoin the EU single market, this independence thing isn't exactly starting off well. And not least given Rees-Mogg's suggestion of "Brexit benefits" last week appears to have gone down like a lead balloon.

Saying that, what's to stop such a minded government decided to try and join the EFTA? Or would that be quite complex at this point?

What's kinda strange is that some Tory donors are apparently running around with declarations of the reverse - that is, deposing Boris Johnson now means losing the next election, compared to this saying that keeping Boris Johnson guarantees losing the next election.

Unless it's a false choice and, like the Tories in 1997 or Labour in 2010, the challenge really isn't in favour of the long-term incumbents.

but they're not going to remove him because he'll win that vote. 

Imagine Spaffers behaviour if he has the security of not having to face another confidence vote for 12 months.

BREAKING: Tory rebels expect Sir Graham Brady to make a statement this morning announcing that there will be a vote of no confidence in Boris Johnson.

 

Only Brady knows the exact details, but this is as certain as anyone has sounded that a vote is on.

It’s on. The only question now is will the Tories grow a spine 🤔

Hope he loses as we deserve a better PM but in the end it will just be another tory leading the country you won't like

VONC vote 6pm-8pm tonight. 

Tory killjoys. I was looking forward to lots of media hysteria and speculation for days more yet.

Wonder if the quick vote works for or against Johnson?

Interesting that the bribery options over the weekend backfired:

No 10 chose the vote to be today so the hope is that there won’t be much time for the rebels to organise.

If he wins this then the public outrage ensures massive landslide defeats in the by-elections. 
 

Wouldn’t surprise me if that triggers more defections within the party. The average Tory MP are rats and will soon switch sides if things aren’t going their way.
