Theresa May set to trigger no confidence vote against Boris in ‘Operation Revenge’ as ‘it’s time to send the letters’

12th Dec 21 1:26 pm

The former Prime Minister Theresa May and her allies are plotting to oust Boris Johnson from his position, it has been reported, in what the Tories have dubbed this “Operation Revenge.”

A political expert has claimed this is because of the series of allegations Johnson and his aides broke the lockdown laws in 2020.

The Times reported, that friends of May have stated that she is still angry in the way she was forced out of Downing Street by Brexiteers.

Johnson is under immense political pressure over many accusations he held a Christmas party as millions were abiding by the Covid rules when London was in Teir 3 lockdown.

As a result of the allegations, allies of May have said they will now submit “letters of no confidence in Johnson” if the Tories lose the North Shropshire by-election to the Liberal Democrats on Thursday as they are now the favourites to win.

A former Minister who served under May announced they will oppose the government on Tuesday, it has been claimed.

Speaking to the Mail of Sunday, a senior figure from May’s government said, “It’s time to send the letters,” which could trigger a new leadership election if Johnson is kicked out of Downing Street.

The former Minister who spoke to the Mail of Sunday over the Prime Minister’s government added, “Something has to change.

“I’ll vote against the government this week in the hope that he listens.

“But if we lose on Thursday, letters will go in.”

For a new leadership election to happen, there must be at least 54 letters for a vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister, which represents just 15% of Tory MPs.
