Who’s next?

It’s all crumbling……

Chewbacca Tue 05-Jul-22 18:16:37

Are there many left?

Sinking ship analogy comes to mind…

Blimey! About time.

Goodness. That was unexpected but welcome. The photo of the cabinet meeting this morning was telling. Lots of glum faces.Lets hope this is the beginning of the end.

Now starts the domino effect......

There have been rumours on Twitter for hours, but wow!

I reckon any Conservative interested in preserving his/her own reputation should resign.

MayBee70 Tue 05-Jul-22 18:23:07

Will anyone be prepared to fill those posts? Does anyone remember anything like this happening before??

Visgir1 Tue 05-Jul-22 18:23:13

Wallace next..?

I’ve just emailed my MP asking her if she still has faith in Boris Johnson’s integrity….

Anniebach Tue 05-Jul-22 18:27:03

It’s all settled, Boris has said ‘sorry’

No MayBee, never.

Just what we were thinking, Casdon. Would anyone bet on Priti Patel or Nadine Dorries doing the decent thing? I wouldn't. grin

Yes rats and sinking ship. Unfortunately Chief Rat is still in situ.

Soroptimum Tue 05-Jul-22 18:29:39

Night of the long knives ahead methinks!

MayBee70 Tue 05-Jul-22 18:30:16

Wonder who’ll agree to go on tv tomorrow morning? Short straws….

Smileless2012 Tue 05-Jul-22 18:30:58

Death by a thousand cuts, and all self inflicted.

Grantanow Tue 05-Jul-22 18:34:19

Excellent news. Well done Rishi and Sajid! Hope this is the beginning of the end for the most disgraceful occupant of No. 10 in my lifetime.

Chestnut Tue 05-Jul-22 18:34:44

Et tu brute?

Ilovecheese Tue 05-Jul-22 18:35:12

Surely he can always rely on Nat and Dom

Esspee Tue 05-Jul-22 18:36:18

Yes! Yes! Yes!

growstuff Tue 05-Jul-22 18:38:14


Wallace next..?

Very possibly he'll be next and maybe Barclay and Gove. Truss, if she's serious about wanting to be next Conservative leader.

growstuff Tue 05-Jul-22 18:39:09

None of the rest would be appointed by any sane future leader.

Joseanne Tue 05-Jul-22 18:39:27

Oooer. Is it to do with fiscal policy?

Hopefully Boris won't bring Matt Hancock back!
