I don't think he had that much support in the first place. Just an anyone but Corbyn vote.

That Tory MP vote giving him 'confidence' for another year, might be the most important in this Parliament. Well played Tory muppets !

It's not just in his DNA to change unless compelled. He thinks rules are for little people and to be fair, that's how things usually work out for him.

Yes, he'll say he's learnt the lessons but won't change his behaviour.

To be fair, it's served him well so far: he's the PM who partied through lockdown like it was freshers' week and just paid one small fine for the privilege.

A former teacher of his said exactly the same thing about him when he was at school.

Given what Hancock got up to in the office, the Downing Street ones were probably quite wild!

Boris Johnson: Prime minister confident he will win next general election - and eyeing up third term

Boris Johnson wants to serve a third term as prime minister despite a bruising week in which the Conservatives suffered two by-election defeats.

Speaking to reporters on the final day of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Kigali, Rwanda, Mr Johnson said the government was "embarked on a colossal project to unite and level up".

And asked if he would lead the Conservatives into the next election, he said: "Will I win? Yes.

"I am thinking actively about the third term and what could happen then. But I will review that when I get to it."

Re: Partygate & Beergate discussion

Unlikely hypothesis…

(Martial law, banning parties, etc.)

Re: Partygate & Beergate discussion

Doesnt "Migrants" mean anyone who moves to another country, including those who leave the UK ?
