Then, in sparsely populated Downing Street, the phone rang. call from the Metropolitan Police made inform prime minister that he will be among the fined for attending a meeting in Downing Street for his birthday, shocked the officials.

this is the measure of the threat he posed that this weekend, after deploying of extremely controversial asylum policy and agreed campaign support up in prime his minister team relieved that the number of deputies are calling for his resignation was limited to a dozen or so – and only one minister resigned.

However, as the Conservative MPs prepared to regroup in Westminster this week many were already concluded that any predictions that the threat to Johnson’s position had diminished were grossly exaggerated.

“He’s still deep in forest, said one former minister. “We have local elections and that’s what keeps us going the most colleagues back. But as soon as the locals are finished, and if there is more fines, then it becomes very much more difficult terrain. I don’t think it’s signed, sealed and delivered – and they know that in No 10. They are very nervous.”

while time of Met phone call during political holidays made This is for scattered number 10 team to formulate the answer, it ended up helping prime minister.

One more hit of luck for Johnson was such a surprise of everyone in in governmentSunak was also fined for his presence at the birthday party party event. It could have been so easy. It is clear that arriving early for meeting, Sunak hung at the door of in party for some time before entering the room.

This meant that those who considered Sunak the natural successor to Johnson were suddenly unable to condemn prime minister while Sunak couldn’t leave without destroying government. Even then the Allies said that he spent a miserable hours considering his future, whatever the consequences, but refused to quit.

Despite these pieces of state, however, as stated by several deputies on Saturday night when security of Johnson’s position was now re-evaluated. All those whom Observer opined that further fines were inevitable and would be more difficult to justify.

In particular, Johnson’s visit to the “Bring Your Own Drink” action. event in garden on Downing Street, as well as the alleged party in The Johnsons’ apartment on Downing Street denied by No. 10 has the biggest potential for damage. “I think it’s a birthday small beer compared with what will happen, said one veteran deputy. “[Potentially] six more fines? What about the apartment party?

This turned him into a mere mortal instead of a Super Boris. I don’t think he has one of shine – that’s all burned down off”.

From on in campaign drag last week, the Conservative candidates did their best to shift the focus from national politics. Walk through the Milton Keynes Chamber of Tattenho, Shazna Muzammil talked about parking, potholes and debris.

Candidate for the Conservative Council, she focused her campaign on the things she considers most important to the locals people. But it’s getting harder to keep up a conversation on track. National issues including partygate and cost of live keep coming up on thresholds. “What’s happening on at the national level… it definitely makes things harder,” said Muzammil, 44. prime minister things are going well on Ukraine, but people never talk to you about it because they have nothing to complain about.”

Tattenho, a relatively wealthy pocket of Milton Keynes is characterized by green spaces and attractive new residential complexes, has two Conservative advisors and one Work. Labor seat next month up for captures are an opportunity Muzammil hopes to seize.

Last year the tori received six seats in Milton Keynes to become the largest party on Advice though not party has overall control. Will they win new voters or cling on to their existing is uncertain.

Another local resident, Vicki Elizabeth, 39, a teacher from Bletchley, is considering voting. for liberal democrats. She wants the advisors to focus on environmental issues and revival of street height and improvement safety for residents, and “keeps an open mind.”

One local, 49-year“an old personal assistant,” Johnson and Sunak said. should “be punished and held accountable, but added: “I don’t care vote for Tori, to be honest. They received us through past several years better than some others countries”.
