Boris Johnson is not finding it funny anymore as more calls for him to step down from office becomes ever so louder. Tobias Ellwood, Ex-minister is the latest to have submitted a letter of no confidence in the PM, amid ongoing row over lockdown parties in No 10.

He was also supported by backbenchers Anthony Mangnall and Sir Gary Streeter. The lot has called for a vote on the future of Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Will Boris Johnson step down?

Angry Tory MPs, have reacted to the response of Mr. Johnson on reports of parties in government buildings held whilst COVID-19  restrictions were in place. He said, “The prime minister rejected calls for him to resign, telling the newspaper he was “focused” on leading the Tory party into the next general election”.

Boris Johnson has bluntly refused to respond to questions that he was at a party in his Downing Street flat on 13 November 2020.

The party gathering at Downing Street is one of the 12 events that took place in Downing and Whitehall that is being investigated by the Metropolitan Police for alleged Covid-rule breaking. SNP’S West minister leader Ian Blackford stated that Boris Johnson misled MPs in December last year when he denied attending the event.

According to Mr. Blackford “Surely he doesn’t need to wait for an investigation to tell us exactly where he was?”

Mr. Johnson countered by stating, “Processes have to be followed and he was getting on with delivering the government’s recovery plan”.

The net seems to be closing in. A survey conducted seems to swing in the favour of Boris Johnson taking responsibility for his misconduct.

“The prime minister of the United Kingdom is the principal minister of the crown of the Her Majesty’s Government, and the head of the British Cabinet. There is no specific date for when the office of prime minister first appeared, as the role was not created but rather evolved over a period of time through a merger of duties.

However, the term was regularly, if informally, used of Walpole by the 1730s. It was used in the House of Commons as early as 1805, and it was certainly in parliamentary use by the 1880s. In 1905, the post of prime minister was officially given recognition in the order of precedence. Modern historians generally consider Sir Robert Walpole, who led the government of Great Britain for over twenty years from 1721, as the first prime minister.

Walpole is also the longest-serving British prime minister by this definition.

However, Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman was the first and Margaret Thatcher the longest-serving prime minister officially referred to as such in the order of precedence. The first to use the title in an official act was Benjamin Disraeli, who signed the Treaty of Berlin as “Prime Minister of her Britannic Majesty” in 1878.
