Boris Johnson to face no-confidence vote today as scores of Tory MPs call on him to go | Boris Johnson | The Guardian

He'll probably survive because there's no other candidate for the leadership who can unite it. And even if he does go, the Conservative party will still stay in power because we can't have nice things.

Boris won 211 votes for, 148 against. That's worse than Theresa May's confidence vote result - and she was gone six months later. Boris will never resign: he'll have to be prised out of Downing Street with crowbars.

Watching an English 20 something I know, what should ordinarily be reasonably employed (in 1960s) with a HMG employer about to become homeless due to a 35% rent increase on a place she didn't heat over last winter while managing on one meal a day being all she could afford.

In unrelated news, there is a thunderstorm warning for the 23rd.
