The Brummies call on Boris Johnson to resign – and suggest a replacement prime minister

A poll has shown that most of Brumey supported Boris Johnson’s call to resign during the country’s lockdown at the Downing Street Garden party.

Birmingham Live Vote states that 74 percent of the city thinks the prime minister should step down from his role – with suggestions every official at the May 2020 gathering should do the same.

However, 23 per cent disagreed and some praised Mr Johnson’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic for his ‘fabulous’. The remaining voters were left unsure of the question.

The survey results come as pressure mounts on the prime minister to resign or suggest he should be sacked following anger at the party, which includes bereaved families who could not attend the funeral or at the time. were not near their loved ones.

Rosemary Sallufi commented: “Yes, to all those who broke the rules of the lockdown and think they are above them. They should be held accountable for all the lies.”

Mark Williams said: “Everyone in the party must resign immediately.”

Sheila Allen said: “Yeah, they should leave that party, while other people should stay away from there families, wrong.”


However, others disagreed and instead praised Boris Johnson for his ‘great job’ in the face of difficult situations.

Tip Joy said: “Boris has done a fantastic job in very tough conditions. It doesn’t matter that they were at 10 Downing Street Gardens, they were all mixed up in Parliament. Look, when Covid first started, then How many of you did not follow the rules?

“We have gone through a very sad time with the passing of our loved ones, but it was because of Kovid and not Boris’s fault.

“Boris is no longer viable – his arrogance and lack of respect for his role and his country means he must leave – our global presence is a joke if he stays on top.”

Doreen Briggs said: “No, he’s doing a good job.”

Others suggested it was the wrong time to change leadership.

Yvonne Bentley said: “This is not the right time to change. I can’t think of who else could do better or who I would trust more than him. Unfortunately I don’t trust him either!”

“My concern is the pressure on them to allow my dear NHS to succumb to the burden of COVID in order to reduce opposition to any future privatization of for-profit services.”

Who should replace the PM?

While a majority of Birmingham Live polls suggested several other candidates to replace him, the man with the most votes was Rishi Sunak, followed by Sajid Javid.

Dominic Raab and Priti Patel also got seven percent of the vote in the poll, while others commented on social media to express their opinion.

Annette Ably said: “Anyone who will not party, why do our family and friends die alone because they have made rules that only they are allowed to ignore.”

Carol Cross said: “Someone who really cares about the people who pay their extortionate wages”

What are the rules for sacking Mr Johnson?

Under Conservative Party rules, there is a vote of no confidence in the leader if 15% of Tory MPs – 55 in total – write to the chairman of the party’s 1922 committee, which represents backbench Conservative MPs, asking for a vote of confidence.

If enough letters are received, a secret ballot is held to decide whether the leader stays or leaves. If a majority support Mr Johnson, he will remain as party leader, and no new no-confidence votes will be allowed for 12 months.

But if I lose this vote, the Conservative Party will hold a contest to choose a new leader.

Mr Johnson would be barred from standing, but any other Tory MP could put himself forward.
