Boris Johnson POLL: Is the Prime Minister still fit for the job despite the letters of no confidence?


In the face of letters of no confidence, is Boris Johnson still fit for the job?

After a tumultuous month in politics, BORIS JOHNSON appears to have lost the trust of some Tory MPs.

Vote in our poll to see if you think he’s still qualified for Prime Minister.

Up to a dozen letters of no confidence have been filed against Boris Johnson, according to Conservative MPs, including one whip.

The news follows the Prime Minister’s speech to business leaders on Monday, during which he compared himself to Moses, quoted Lenin, lost his place for 21 seconds, made car engine noises, and went off on a tangent about his trip to Peppa Pig World.


He asked for a show of hands from the audience to see who had visited the Peppa Pig Hampshire attraction, which is six hours away from the conference venue of South Shields, and said “not enough.”

Since then, MPs have either defended or slammed Mr Johnson for his “tigerish” personality, as Dominic Raab put it.

Rachel Reeves, Labour’s shadow chancellor, described the speech as “shambolic,” adding that “no one was laughing because the joke isn’t funny anymore.”

“Businesses are begging for clarity,” Liberal Democrat leader Ed Davey said.

“Instead, they got Boris Johnson talking about Peppa Pig.”

“It’s a perfect metaphor for Johnson’s chaotic and inept administration.”

Mr Johnson’s speech was “embarrassing,” according to a Downing Street aide, and a senior Government source told the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg: “There is a lot of concern inside the building about the PM… It’s just not working.”

Mr Johnson’s approval ratings have plummeted in the wake of a month of “Tory sleaze” scandals, and a new wave of no confidence votes shows Conservative party members are also dissatisfied with his performance.

“If the next month is like the last month, with horror stories continuing, more letters will be submitted,” a Tory MP told the Telegraph.

A leadership contest will be triggered if 15% of sitting Conservative MPs submit a letter of no confidence, which would require 50 letters.

The most likely successors to Boris Johnson are Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Foreign Secretary Liz Truss.

According to the most recent YouGov poll, only 29% of people think he’s doing a good job as Prime Minister, which is a new low since he became the country’s leader.

In comparison, there were 1,600 Great British soldiers.
