Boris hasn't 'seen any evidence of blackmailing' :lol:

I note that is very different to 'I/my cabinet have not been blackmailing MPs'.

He might be fucked this time.

Dont really understand why Johnson would be that bothered about facing a vote of confidence . He would win it probably comfortably. his payroll taking him most of the way to winning one. So that's why i just can't believe he would go to the bother of blackmailing anyone to avoid one.

Depends whether someone else wants to take over and MPs think they've got a better chance of staying or getting on the payroll by voting against Boris.

The "blackmail" stuff is from a couple of 37 year olds who have clearly never seen Yes Minister. 

"i see you're building a school in your constituency. The Prime minister is very supportive at the moment. I trust we can count on your support." 

Millenial "wah, blackmail, i'm telling the police"

This headline 😂

Even we Germans think Boris Johnson is a spiffing winner... if anyone is entitled to a lengthy stay in Downing Street, it's him, writes ALEXANDER VON SCHOENBURG

I'm guessing that Alexander von Schoenburk is to Kier Starmer what Art Vandelay was to George Costanza. 

Otherwise known as the Count of Schönburg-Glauchau. His kids would be in line to the British throne through his wife Princess Irina of Hesse if they weren't Catholic.

Also from the BBC:

Downing Street party: Who is Sue Gray and what is she investigating?

 

Ah, Johnson's Good Old Days when one party was all there was. All of SIX days ago.

This feasibility studies for daft ideas business sounds like a good earner.

Quote

The Department for Transport (DfT) said the research into the feasibility of a fixed link to Northern Ireland cost £896,681.

Network Rail chair Sir Peter Hendy led the investigation, which found that a bridge would cost £335 billion, while a tunnel would require a budget of around £209 billion.

His report concluded that the project “would be impossible to justify” as “the benefits could not possibly outweigh the costs”. In addition to the huge expense, the inquiry also noted that the necessary work would be incredibly challenging.

Johnson previously talked up the creation of a fixed link but accepted the conclusion of the report.

This 'blackmailing' is a really weak sauce story considering the long history of brutal government enforcement of party discipline. If that's all the ammunition available right now then he can certainly hang on to the report. 

Unless the report hammers him then there will need to be another party/lying to the Commons story to empty him soon.

So I wonder what is coming today in operation get bojo out.Maybe some more bully type claims and keep the next juicy scandal for the Sundays ?

My guess - Sue Gray delivers the report. Days of grumbling in the media about the x number of events listed in it. Cummings releases evidence of another party not covered in the report. Pressure starts again.

The Gray report isn't expected until midweek, which is why yesterday's story suggests that they're running out of ammunition before then.

I wouldn't be surprised if there is a final story being kept for when Johnson inevitably denies all responsibility.
