On the horizon: A plot to destabilise UK PM Boris Johnson

Boris Johnson, the British Prime Minister, was struggling to keep his job on Wednesday after a revolt by his own legislators, who were enraged by a series of lockdown parties in Downing Street.

The news: Johnson was propelled to the top job to “get Brexit done,” and he gained his party’s largest majority in more than 30 years in 2019. However, he is now facing calls to quit following a series of revelations regarding gatherings in Downing Street during COVID lockdowns.

  • Johnson has apologised several times for the gatherings, claiming that he was unaware of many of them, however he did attend what he thought was a work function on May 20, 2020.
  • 54 of the 360 Conservative MPs in parliament must sign letters of no confidence to the chairman of the party’s 1922 Committee to initiate a leadership challenge.
  • According to the Telegraph, up to 20 Conservative legislators who gained seats in the last general election in 2019 plan to write letters of no confidence in Johnson.
  • Because the letters are confidential, only the chairman knows how many legislators have actually written them.

What’s next: On Wednesday, Johnson will address parliament if his Cabinet approves measures to lift recent limitations placed to combat the spread of COVID-19 in England.

As the Omicron strain spread fast across the United Kingdom, the government implemented “Plan B” measures last month. They included advice on working from home whenever possible, indoor masks, and vaccine passports for mass events.
