The @Conservatives & Boris Johnson are in BIG trouble: Johnson performed worse than Major & May in their leadership challenges in 1995 & 2019, & he faced as much opposition as Margaret Thatcher did in the first round of her leadership contest in 1990.…
The history of such confidence votes in leaders of the @Conservatives tells us that they almost always end up damaging both the leader AND the party, even when they support the incumbent.

We have seen this happening on three successive occasions over the past 32 years.
A #voteofnoconfidence itself inevitably weakens rather than strengthens the position of the leader & this erodes support for the party among the voters.

Polling consistently shows that the Wakefield & the Honiton & Tiverton by-elections are likely to result in two losses.

1.7 Where the PM determines that a breach of the expected standards has occurred, he may ask the Independent Adviser for confidential advice on the appropriate sanction. The
final decision rests with the PM...
...Where the PM retains his confidence in the Minister, available sanctions include requiring some form of public apology, remedial action, or removal of ministerial salary for a period.

Now, Johnson alone decides the fate of any minister, including himself 🚨🚨🚨

Letter to my MP Matthew Offord #PartyGate #MinisterialCode #JohnsonOut

Dear Matthew,

Thank you for your letter dated 27th April, wherein you stated that 'there is currently no evidence' [that the PM misled the House of Commons], and that a vote of no confidence...
...'would [not] be helpful in advance of the Met Police completing their investigations and the release of Sue Gray's full report'. Now that the Met have completed their investigation & the report has been released, I am keen to hear how you intend to proceed.

We have irrefutable evidence that Boris Johnson lied to the House (in January & on 29th March). Johnson stated that he had been 'repeatedly assured...that there was no party...and that no rules were broken.' His statement was demonstrably untrue...

ایم کیوایم کا پیپلزپارٹی کیساتھ معاہدہ پر اپوزیشن کی حمایت کا فیصلہ۔ تحریکِ عدم اعتماد کے ضمن میں اپوزیشن کا پلڑا بھاری ہوگیا۔

اور اگر متحدہ قومی موومنٹ اس کا اعلان کر دیتی ہے تو میرے خیال میں عمران خان صاحب کو باعزت طریقے سے استعفیٰ دے دینا چاہیے۔
کیونکہ جمہوریت میں سادہ اکثریت کھو دینے کے بعد قائد ایوان کے پاس سیاسی اور آئینی طور پر کچھ نہیں رہ جاتا۔

آنے والی حکومت عارضی ہو گی جو جلد انتخابات کا اعلان کرے گی۔ جس میں پاکستان تحریک انصاف سمیت تمام سیاسی جماعتیں دوبارہ میدان عمل میں ہوں گی۔
