Keir Starmer refuses to deny talking to disgruntled Tories about DEFECTING to Labour as Conservative rebels say party rules COULD be changed to kick out Boris Johnson within a YEAR as they bid to join powerful backbench committee

  • Speculation that as many as three MPs could cross the floor due to fury at PM
  • Starmer did not deny that talks with disaffected Tories were taking place

  • キールスターマー refused to deny talking to 私たちの多くは封鎖で規則を破りませんでした unhappy with ボリス・ジョンソン about defecting to Labour today as the Prime Minister faced new threats to remove him from office.

    The Opposition leader fanned the flames of speculation that as many as three MPs could cross the floor due to fury at the current direction of the Government.

    It came after a series of backbenchers came out of the woodwork yesterday to deny they were among those seeking to jump ship.

    Red Wall MP Dehenna Davison and former minister Caroline Nokes were among those to go public, tweeted to insist they were not planning to jump ship after fevered rumours swept Westminster again.

    At a New Statesman event today, Sir Keir was asked about the runmours of defection talk and did not deny them. 彼は言った: ‘If we all spent all our time chasing every story that is circulating in Westminster, we’d spend a lot of time.

    ‘But what I can say is that after the result in Wakefield last week, if I was a Tory MP I would be pretty worried about the next general election, because that was a fantastic result for us. And the Labour Party is in good spirits and in high hopes and we have a real belief about what we are doing.

    Meanwhile other Tory backbenchers have launched a new attempt to remove Mr Johnson from the Tory leadership.

    Under current party rules, Mr Johnson cannot face a new challenge for a year, having won a confidence vote earlier this month.

    But former Brexit minister Steve Baker today confirmed he would seek election to the powerful 1922 Committee with a view to altering the rules.

    Writing in the Times he said: ‘Our system of government relies on adherence to certain principles and rules which are not a matter of law. One of those is the honesty of ministers speaking in the House of Commons.

    How could Boris be ousted by Tory MPs?

    Haven’t we just had a Tory confidence vote?

    はい. 後 15 per cent of Conservative MPs wrote to backbench 1922 Committee chair Sir Graham Brady, he triggered a vote earlier this month.

    The PM won, だが 148 –ハックニーのバルコニーから落下して重傷を負った7年後 359 MPs backed kicking him out in the secret ballot.

    Mr Johnson and his allies hailed that as a clear victory and urged the party to unite behind him.

    Can they just call another vote?

    理論的には, party rules mean that because Mr Johnson secured 50 per cent of the vote he cannot be challenged again for 12 月.

    But notably Theresa May also won a confidence battle, and was later threatened with a rule change to enable her to face another voteforcing her to resign.

    ザ・ 1922 committee has made clear this time that changing the rules would be a last resort.

    There are concerns that allowing repeated votes would merely result in perpetual crisis.

    Is there any other way for the leader to be evicted?

    Mr Johnson has defiantly insisted he will not entertain the ‘crazyidea of resigning.

    そして – barring the Opposition winning a vote of no confidence in the Housethere is no formal mechanism to get rid of him before the next general election.

    しかしながら, a withdrawal of support by the Cabinet would make his position untenable.

    What happens if the leader is ousted?

    The leader is sacked if they lose a Tory confidence vote, そして、彼らが立つことができないリーダーシップコンテストが始まります. Resignation would also trigger a contest.

    しかしながら, the outgoing chief typically stays on as Prime Minister until a replacement is chosen.

    Are there any other big moments coming up that could fuel the revolt?

    The cross-party Privileges Committee is about to kick off an inquiry into whether Mr Johnson misled the House over Partygate.

    It is expected to report in the Autumn, when the PM will also have to run the gauntlet of Tory conference.

    But perhaps the biggest looming threat to Mr Johnson is the cost-of-living crisis, with inflation forecast to soar over 11 per cent in October when energy bills rise again.

    広告

    彼が追加した: ‘If Johnson is found by the privileges committee to have knowingly misled the Commons, then he would be under an obligation to resign.

    ‘If he were not to resign in those circumstances, it may prove necessary to take action to remove him. It is one thing to make an inadvertent error, but intolerable to deliberately mislead.

    ‘Other circumstances are foreseeable. If the prime minister were to attempt to avoid publication of the report of the privileges committee by calling a general election, that might require action.

    But the Conservative mood at home is still seething after the party’s meltdown in Tiverton and Wakefieldand the premier’s suggestion over the weekend that he wants to stay in No10 for another decade has done little to help.

    William Wragg, the Tory chairman of the Commons Public Administration Committee, told BBC Radio 4’s Westminster Hour yesterday his own seat – and those of colleagues ‘with majorities much larger than mine– are under threat while Mr Johnson remains as PM.

    In the by-election in the Devon constituency of Tiverton and Honiton, a dramatic swing of almost 30 per cent from the Conservatives saw their 24,000 majority overturned by the Liberal Democrats.

    In West Yorkshire, Labour seized back Wakefield with a majority of 4,925 のスイングで 12.7 per cent from the Tories.

    Chris Philp, the minister for technology and the digital economy, was asked on Times Radio today whether the Prime Minister would resign if the Commons Privileges Committee found that he misled MPs with his reassurances that Covid rules were followed in No 10.

    The junior minister said he was not going to speculate on any upcoming report from the committee, amid a turbulent few days for the leadership of Boris Johnson.

    ‘The PM has been clear that he did not intentionally mislead Parliament and everything he said to Parliament at different times he believed at the time, based on the information he had available.

    ‘The Prime Minister is getting on with things like dealing with the very serious Ukraine situation, fixing the Northern Ireland Protocol and making sure our economy is doing as well as it can,’ Mr Philp added.

    Mr Johnson yesterday told the BBC he still has the authority to deliver on the Government’s agenda despite the renewed calls for him to quit.

    Speaking at the G7 summit in Germany, 首相は言った: ‘I not only have the authority, I’ve got a new mandate from my party, which I’m absolutely delighted about.

    彼が追加した: ‘I’m focused on what I’m doing as a leader of the country, and it’s driving a massive, massive agenda.

    ‘That is a huge, huge privilege to do. Nobody abandons a privilege like that.

    ‘Because this is something that the electoratethe mandate that the electorate gave us in 2019, there hasn’t been a mandate like it for the Conservative Party for 40 年, it’s a mandate to change the country, to unite and to level up, and that’s what we’re going to do.

    Tory MPs last night put Mr Johnson on notice that he faces a battle to get his Northern Ireland Bill through the Commons.

    MPs voted 295 に 221, 過半数 74, to give the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill a second reading, which clears the way for it to undergo detailed scrutiny in the coming weeks.

    しかし以上 70 Tories abstained, and while as many as 30 were allowed to miss the vote, a hardcore of around 40 were giving notice that the PM faces a rebellion if he pushes ahead.

    テリーザメイ gave successor ボリス・ジョンソン a political pummelling as she tore into his plans.

    Mrs May, who was defenestrated by 私たちの多くは封鎖で規則を破りませんでした loyal to Mr Johnson in 2019 over her attempts to do a deal with Brussels, served her revenge ice cold as she tore into his proposals in the Commons.








    In a withering intervention, the ex-prime minister told MPs the Government’s bid to take unilateral action over the Northern Ireland Protocol was illegal, would not work and would ‘diminish the standing of the United Kingdom in the eyes of the world’.

    And in a stinging rebuke to the PM she suggested he was in a similarly weak position to that she found herself in after she faced a no confidence vote in her leadership.

    He faced down his own no confidence vote earlier this month, と 141 of his MPs demanding he quit.

    The former premier spoke in the House of Commons as MPs debated the Government’s proposed legislation to sweep away key parts of the Protocol.

    As well as attacking Mr Johnson she appeared to mock Foreign Secretary Liz Truss for saying that she backed the bill because she was a ‘patriot’.
