Results that risk weakening Boris Johnson a little more, much criticized within his party since the “partygate”, the affair of the parties watered in Downing Street during the confinements. British Conservative Party Chairman Oliver Dowden announced his resignation to Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Friday (June 24th) after a series of “very poor” electoral results including the defeats of the Tories in two parliamentary by-elections on Thursday. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson suffered two bitter setbacks including in a constituency in South West England held by the Tories for more than a century. from the Conservative South West of England since its inception in 1997, by over 6,000 votes. The main opposition Labor Party won by nearly 5,000 votes the constituency of Wakefield in northern England, a traditionally Labor stronghold snatched by the Tories in their December 2019 triumph. took place on Thursday after two resignations by former Conservative MPs who have fallen out of favor in recent months. The Wakefield poll was triggered by the resignation of Imran Khan, sentenced to 18 months in prison for the sexual assault of a teenager. In Tiverton and Honiton, 65-year-old MP Neil Parish tendered his resignation after admitting watching pornography on his phone in Parliament. the affair of the parties watered in Downing Street during the confinements – these results are likely to accentuate even more the climate of mistrust within the majority. However, Boris Johnson had excluded Thursday, when he was in Rwanda for a Commonwealth summit, to resign in the event of defeat. Johnson on an ejection seatIn speeches hailing their victories, the two newly elected MPs said Britain had lost faith in Boris Johnson and urged him to step down. Opposition leader Keir Starmer, who is considering replacing Boris Johnson as prime minister after the next general election due in 2024, has claimed Wakefield ‘could be the birthplace of the next Labor government’.” Wakefield showed that the country has lost faith in the Tories,” he said in a statement. “This result is a clear verdict on a Conservative party that has run out of energy and ideas.”Liberal Democrat leader Ed Davey said his party made “political history” with the victory staggering” and that it was a “wake-up call for all those Tory MPs who support Boris Johnson”. “The people of Tiverton and Honiton have spoken on behalf of the country,” he added. “The public is fed up with Boris Johnson’s lies and breaches of law and it’s time Tory MPs finally do the right thing and fire him.”Boris Johnson has spent months fighting for his survival after a series of controversies, including ‘Partygate’, which dented his legitimacy as party leader. Even before the controversy erupted last December, the 58-year-old Brexit architect lost two once-secure seats in the by-elections last year. He then scored dismal in the local elections in May. A few weeks later, dozens of Tory MPs triggered a vote of no confidence in Boris Johnson, and more than 40% of them turned the back to their struggling leader. The context is proving unfavorable for his government, with inflation at its highest for 40 years – exceeding 9% – at the origin of a massive strike by railway workers, and the recent failed controversial attempt to deport migrants to Rwanda.
