Boris Johnson the British Prime Minister is facing a no confidence vote at 3PM EST today from his own MPs.
If Boris loses then the tories have a leadership election to determine who will be the new leader and therefore PM.
His downfall is from his continuous habitual lying about parties he held/attended during the height of the Covid lockdown. The vast majority of the country complied yet now we find out that Boris and his cronies thought they were above the law.
If he had come clean before the Sue Gray report chances are he would not be facing a no confidence vote today. But in true Boris style he thought he could lie and bluster his way out of this.
The leader of the labor party is also been investigated for a similar breach of the rules but his seems to be more a one off than a litany of parties where they pretend it was for business.
Looking more and more like he may be pushed out. It would be interesting to see who would replace him- Liz Truss? Jeremy Hunt? Or perhaps Boris will pull a rabbit out of a hat once more time and survive the vote.
I will not underestimate the teflon nature of Boris. However last I heard only 90 MPs have come out in public support for him. With it being a secret ballot they can vote anyway they wish so even out of those 90 some can vote no confidence.
The UK Conservative Party is holding an internal no-confidence vote to decide whether Boris Johnson should remain as Prime Minister.
This comes as inflation continues to accelerate and the risk of recession is increasing.
Inflation will spiral to more than 10 per cent by October – the highest rate in 40 years – as Britain risks being pushed into recession with millions facing higher bills . . .Households are expected to be hit with a devastating 40 per cent rise in energy bills this winter, sending inflation to 10.25 per cent – a level not seen since 1982.
Average gas and electricity bills are forecast to hit £2,800 when Ofgem raises its price cap to reflect a rise in wholesale energy costs, which has been exacerbated by the war in Ukraine. Prices of food and other essential goods are also expected to continue to rise, the Bank’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) said on Thursday.
Meanwhile in Estonia, the ruling coalition has collapsed. The inflation rate there is 20%. Estonian inflation is the highest in the Eurozone as a result of the sanctions against neighboring Russia.
In contrast in Russia, economy growth is continuing, and the strong ruble is causing the central bank to lower interest rates to avoid deflation.
Are the sanctions on Russia starting to result in regime change but in western Europe, not Russia?
None of the major parties in the west seem ready to admit that NATO is losing the economic war.
What will be required for a reversal of the current policy of economic suicide?
