Oh, okay, seismic then. He's fucked. Will be quite entertaining to have a PM try to stay in power with zero support from any media left, right or otherwise. Not sure that's been done before. If that kind of pressure keeps up then presumably the cabinet will finally start splitting very very soon. Happy days.

Rothermere is such a tosser. That article describing him as being 'incandescent' about the paper being out of touch. Jesus, the world these pricks live in.

He’ll end up calling a general election, thinking it’s the only way he can silence these people.

Think that particular nuclear button option will be taken away from him before he gets the chance to use it. Definitely feels it could be last days for him now that DM has turned.

How will it? At the moment there isn't a way as he's safe for another year, yes the Tories could change the rules but that'll take time and give him the moment to call an election.

I know it doesn't sound likely that he'll walk, but if (and it's still a big if) the cabinet splits and people start resigning around him and then he's left unable to run a functioning govt, so things will get very very spicy with ALL the papers briefing against him.

I swear I read something somewhere the other day that posited the queen could refuse to dissolve parliament. But I could have dreamt it, I have been living inside covid fuelled hallucinations the last few days.

Isn't the sun still on side?

I read that too but the Queen showed how pointless she is back when Johnson illegally prorogued Parliament so she'll do absolutely nothing again.

Ah, okay, it wasn't a dream then. I think the proroguing stunt he pulled makes it *more* likely she'll be strongly briefed to reject the request. All a constitutional bonfire of course, the days of running a country based on 'gentleman's honour' is finally showing it's limitations. Who would have thought.

I think we will see a shift when Charles becomes King.  He is very much more involved in politics - thats if he survives the crisis over suitcases of money.   The guy will be a republicans wet dream I hope.

No way the Queen is going to get involved.  She knows better.

This flurry of policies smells like electioneering. Maybe they anticipate a snap election?

Actually think under the circumstances this one is wise - Labour then going toe to toe with tories in the red wall and conceding to the Lib Dems any europhile soft liberal marginals. Hung parliament here we come.
