“So here we are. Two and a half years after UK prime minister Boris Johnson won the Brexit election, realigning British politics, battering Labour in its heartlands and delivering an 80-seat majority, his premiership hangs in the balance. Tonight’s ‘vote of confidence’ in the prime minister was anything but. What Johnson has hailed as a ‘convincing’ victory was in fact another crushing blow to his authority. In the end, 211 Tory MPs backed him while 148 voted against. This is worse than Theresa May fared in her confidence vote in 2018. She was gone six months later. He also did worse than John Major in 1995, who went on to lose the next election by a landslide.” (06/06/22)
