Boris faces no confidence vote

The Guardian reports:

Sir Graham Brady has told Tory MPs that there will be a vote of no confidence in Boris Johnson, the ’s Chris Mason reports. It will take place evening, between 6pm and 8pm.

So we should know the result by 9 am NZST.

I think he will go. Voters will forgive a lot but not the hypocrisy of locking the country down while having numerous social functions at 10 Downing Street. He might survive vote but will be so wounded he will go the way of Theresa May.

If he does lose the vote, then the caucus hold a series of ballots until there are two contenders left and then party members vote between those two. I’d say Liz Truss is the front runner at stage.

UPDATE: Boris won but with only 60% support so he hangs on for now but is basically mortally wounded.
