TWO backbench Tory MPs have submitted letters of No Confidence in Prime Minister Boris Johnson after his “erratic approach” to COVID-19 regulations, signalling that the Tories could possibly be planning to oust Mr Johnson.
On Sunday, it was reported that Mr Johnson would lose his 81 seat majority and his own seat of Uxbridge and Ruislip South in a damning verdict of his premiership.
The Financial Times reported last night that two MPs had submitted letters of no-confidence in Johnson to the chair of the all-powerful 1922 committee Sir Graham Brady, the Committee has the power to remove PM’s in a confidence vote.
One of the MPs told the FT: “I’m completely fed up. He just can’t lead and this can’t go on.”
BORIS THE DICTATOR
FORMIDABLE Yorkshire Firebrand and former speaker of the House of Commons Betty Boothroyd tore into failing Boris Johnson amid his handling of the Coronavirus pandemic, comparing his government to a Dictatorship.
She told the Prime Minister to “stop talking” and said Britain needed to “see some action,” telling Sky News that his U-Turn was “The daddy of them all”.
Baroness Boothroyd had previously stated that she would not trust Mr Johnson to “even run a bath” and added that during her 47 years in parliament she has “never seen trust in a government fall so far and so fast”.
Betty’s words will sure resonate will millions of fed-up Brits who are tired of Boris Johnson’s flip-flopping Government.
Fury was sparked after the Prime Minister appeared on The Andrew Marr Show on Sunday and declared that “Schools were safe,” urging Brits to send their children to school for the start of the New Year term.
24 hours later, the PM held a televised address and forced Schools to close across the country.
He is also under-fire for the failure of the Vaccine roll-out effort, despite the PM promising a rapid vaccine effort, yet just 944,539 Brits have so far had the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Betty hit back at Boris telling Sky: “The government is behaving like a dictatorship” and said “I do not believe spreading vaccine thinly is going to be helpful” and said his Government needed to “stop talking so much” and “start acting more”.
