Attitudes to the Prime Minister

In the last twenty four hours I have had around 50 emails hostile to the PM over the culture in Downing Street. Some of these came from longstanding opponents of the PM, but some from new voices.  I have also had strong  complaints about the lack of support for UK  farmers to grow food and the licencing of foreign supertrawlers to plunder UK waters. In previous days the main preoccupation was the domestic energy shortage and prices.

I consulted the Executive of the local Conservative party this morning. The overwhelming view was to await the Report on what happened in Downing Street , who attended which gatherings and whether any of them broke the guidance or law at the time. There was widespread disapproval of senior civil servants holding drinks events during lockdown and a wish to see appropriate disciplinary action taken where the facts justified it.

    I think every remainer in the country wants Boris to fall with the hope That we get a new remainer PM sympathetic to the EU.

      JW – I am unclear as to why you feel the need to separate your email quota out in this manner, it sounds petty, bitter and disconnected.
      BW – why are you referring to a ‘remainers’ a reference from debate that was settled and ran its course and concluded at the last election. What would be the objective of this replacement PM in this context of yours? you sound very confused.
      The Boris question is about integrity and trust in our leadership of our country, not about outcomes of who attended which party, as if it were some classroom misdemeanour.
      Our global reputation and national sovereignty is at stake here, everything Brexit stands for and yet party politics and maintaining power appears to trump all clear honest thinking. We don’t want a Republican style party in this country thank you very much.

    I am not a Remainer and I would like to see Boris go, in the hope of replacing him with someone with the necessary focus of vision and determination to face down the Remainers who at present control the Civil Service. It is very clear now that Boris lacks the grit to do this.

    What about the spads? Didn’t they attend the parties? The hypocrisy of only considering ‘senior civil servants’ is incredible.
