A tearful Tuesday evening with a back-step by the executive chancellor and health minister led to the contempt of members of the executive. But the Prime Minister is not giving up: he will be Prime Minister tomorrow

From our correspondent
LONDON – Race over, get off. It was a race to be the first to jump off the Johnson government’s derailed train: more than thirty ministers, undersecretaries and bag holders resigned yesterday. The biggest mass executive escape in British history.

In the evening, a group of ministers led by Neo Chancellor of Nadeem Zahavi, appeared at Downing Street to order Boris Johnson out. But he refused: millions of people voted for me, he replied, who among you can repeat my success?

A dramatic moment took place between Westminster and Downing Street yesterday. Michael Gove, who was his twin in the Brexit campaign, left his right-hand man and Boris, who was sacked today, since the morning, and now holds the key role of Minister for Regional Cohesion: according to media rumours, Gove himself would have told Johnson yesterday morning that time is up and it’s time to pull back the curtain (He was fired by the Prime Minister later in the evening).

Boris held on to the end, but the stench of decay spread around him. Yesterday afternoon at the foreign press conference in Downing Street, the faces of the spokesmen were awake: embarrassment, lazy and evasive answers, staring at the ceiling. The same, similar atmosphere seen in those rooms three years ago, in the hours before Theresa May was ousted. A joke escaped the policeman on guard: Busy day, today….

The cataract opened on Tuesday afternoon Simultaneous resignations of Chancellor of the Exchequer (ie Treasury Minister) Rishi Sunak and Health Minister Sajid JavidThis dealt a fatal blow to the Johnson government and its credibility.

Yesterday, during a heated question-and-answer session in Parliament, as Boris promised to press on, Javid explained the reasons for his resignation in a very telling manner: I have given the Prime Minister the benefit of the doubt many times over other suspicions of corruption. , but I am now convinced that the problem lies above and that Johnson will not change. He was echoed by other Conservative MPs, with colleagues staring into space with stony stares. Soon after, Boris appeared at a hearing before a parliamentary commission and gave life to an amazing spectacle: when asked what was going on, he assured that he would still be prime minister tomorrow.

But within seconds his authority evaporated. If it wasn’t for yesterday, Johnson would be gone within days, puffed up by his incompetence even before his political mistakes. The situation was accelerated by the latest scandal in which the Prime Minister found himself involved, viz Sexual corruption
Chris Pincher, the Conservatives’ deputy group leader, has groped and made unwanted advances on several young colleagues and male aides.

It turned out that the Prime Minister had been aware of these behaviors for years, a scenario initially denied: in short, As in the matter Partygate, Le Feste a Downing Street During the lockdown, and in many other cases, Boris has once again shown a complete disregard for the law and the truth, while sending his ministers to the cameras to defend the indefensible. In recent days, the morale of the Conservative Party has dropped below zero, and discomfort was also evident in the government: at a cabinet meeting broadcast on TV, the faces of ministers were the faces of a funeral.

Ministers saw even their own MPs laugh in Parliament when they tried to explain that Johnson had forgotten the allegations against Pincher. The prime minister’s authority had already been seriously compromised a month earlier Overcame disbelief But he saw more than 40 percent of the parliamentary group vote against him. Later, double-election defeats in two crucial supplementary rounds showed his magic touch had disappeared: he had to resign with much of the public fed up with scandals. Last night these same conservatives finally tried to pull the plug. The drama continues.
