Britain is on edge as Prime Minister Boris Johnson awaits the results of Sue Gray’s investigation into parties his employees held during Covid-19 lockdowns.
The report is due to arrive at some point on Thursday and is expected to seal the fate of the PM. Politics lecturer Richard Johnson said that the report is expected to dictate the actions of the parliament:
“The report matters because if it has negative ramifications in the public arena that will put pressure on MPs [to remove Johnson],” he said. “Simple majority of conservative MPs can remove the prime minister in a vote of no confidence in his leadership, and that’s really, they are the gatekeepers of Boris Johnson’s leadership.”
