“In the name of god, go” – pleas to Boris Johnson

Published

on

U-K Prime Minister Boris Johnson is facing increased pressure to stand down, following a dramatic question time in the House of Commons.

Conservative Tory, David Davis told Johnson to go “in the name of God”, saying the repeated reports of Covid rule-breaking at Downing Street are too significant to ignore. 

These comments came after a fierce exchange of words between the P-M and opposition leader, Keir Starmer.

So far six Conservative MPs have publicly declared no confidence in the PM, but more are thought to have submitted letters to Sir Graham Brady, chairman of the backbench 1922 committee, who organises Tory leadership contests.

There are claims that the threshold of 54 letters needed to trigger a no-confidence vote and leadership election could soon be reached, but no official word has been given.

Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross, one of those who has called for Mr Johnson to quit, said a no-confidence vote was “near” and “getting closer”.

Is the party over?

David Davis is the former Brexit Secretary, and has been a strong supporter of Johnson up until this point. 

He was particularly disappointed in the PM’s interview on Wednesday, calling it an attempt to “escape responsibility”. 

He added: “I expect my leaders to shoulder the responsibility for the actions they take. Yesterday he did the opposite of that. So, I will remind him of a quotation which may be familiar to his ear: Leopold Amery to Neville Chamberlain.

“‘You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing. In the name of God, go.'”

There is also growing speculation the threshold of letters from MPs seeking teh P-M to stand down could be reached by this week. 

But Johnson remains certain in his ability in continuing to lead Britain.

Meanwhile, England’s Plan B measures are to end from next Thursday, with mandatory face coverings in public places and Covid passports both dropped.

The prime minister also said the government would immediately drop its advice for people to work from home.
