Are you trying to create a sneering environment that persecutes anyone that doesn’t agree with you.
Does it to me too, he doesn’t like being disagreed with, particularly by Tories!

It is abundantly clear there is an unruly mobbish, rude heavy drinking culture at No.10

I wanted to wait for Sue Gary's report before casting judgement, but there is no humanity about those Lockdown parties. I think the damage is done for Boris now and the electorate will remember this and the cost of living crisis. He's toast

You have to admire Boris's jacobs.

He genuinely does not give a toss about the people who voted for him.

Not sure why people keep voting in rich arseholes. Poor arseholes are much better.
He cheated on his wife while she was undergoing treatment for cancer and pressured a mistress to have at least one abortion. Not sure why a random British citizen should expect him to care about any of them.

Is it just the anti conservatives / media / tories / boris / Brexit lot that are banging this drum? Really boring now.
If people were “bored” about this and/ or didn’t give a **** then today’s poll wouldn’t have had these figures …

The amount who think he should resign: 59%
The amount who think he should stay: 30%

The 59% must be anti conservatives / media / tories / boris / Brexit so they don’t count.

As for I’d it just non-Tories: 63% of Tory voters say he should stay but a sizeable 27% of them think he should resign. Translated into votes that’s millions.

Updated that post after you replied mate. That 27% of Tories who want him to resign equates to about 3.8 million voters. Or as their MPs will see it, nearly 6,000 voters per constituency.

Who gets asked these polls? Shoppers outside savacenter in Basildon or those with pitch forks outside parliament or is it an online thing?

Wanting him to resign over this doesn't necessarily equate to not voting for him though in the strange world of UK politics.

Looking at the breakdown most of those asked would most likely have wanted him to resign before he was elected.

I wonder what percentage think that the conservatives would become stronger if he resigned?

I never said it did. Can we agree that it does equate to (whatever percentage of) them being less likely to vote for his party?

You’ll have to ask Yougov but I doubt the above two groups are the only demographics they poll from. Why anyway? Doesn’t the result sound right to you?

The frightening thing for me, and its glaringly obvious, is that they are actually using this as a tactic to swerve the real and proper problem of the millions of people who are ****ting themselves about how they are going to eat and keep warm.
Johnson and his party are seeing their parties as a smoke and mirror exercise.
Total c****!
