Depressingly there’s already a conspiracy theory that the BBC edited the booing into the audio feed, which the Tory culture minister seems to be stoking.

A vote of confidence is going to happen at 6pm which will decide if Boris Johnson stays or goes:
 

wonko the sane?

You may test that assumption at your convinience.

They called no confidence. Doesn't matter the outcome, it almost always signals and election after.

In this case, it should have still, because if he lost the vote: he would have been removed as prime minister which would triggered and election.

The fact that they even called it means he has bigger problems to deal with even though he won.

The Lib Dems are putting forward a no confidence vote in the House, we'll see how that goes. Paradoxically, it probably won't get the same support from the Torys that the internal vote did.

Johnson won't resign, he is fully devoid of the kind of shame or introspection that would make that happen. He'll have to be pried out of office.

One is an internal challenge (WE are unhappy.) the other is an external challenge (THEY are unhappy.). Tories give no ***** about other people, but will always rally around their own in case of challenge.

I think it's less Johnson survived due to any actual wellspring of support, and more the fact there's no one who is insane enough to take the position.

Ahhh, tyrants and dictators laying low the plans and schemes of tyrants and dictators. Delicious irony.
