A senior Tory and Brexiteer thinks so

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-60071311

Steve Baker told the BBC's Nick Robinson a growing rebellion from Tory MPs over gatherings in No 10 "looks like checkmate" for the prime minister.
The former Brexit minister - seen as influential backbench figure - said the current situation was "appalling, and the public are rightly furious".

What is it with Senior Tories and Brexiteers ? They all appear dissatisfied with Boris

I posted somewhere else that a certain brand of Brexiteer, of which I would imagine Steve Baker is one (Andrew Bridgen is another), might be keen to offload Johnson as they don't like the way Brexit is looking under him.
In my view, while a change of leader would almost certainly benefit the Tories, if they got their way in that respect it would probably spell disaster for the party because I doubt whether voters really want a party with the deregulation fundamentalists at the helm.

Anyway, it isn't just them of course.
If Boris was in anyway concerned about this country, and lets face it that's normally why you want to become PM, then he would go now because the longer he stays the more damage he is doing. Nothing else will get done while this keeps droning on. Go now and let someone else get downing street up and running again, because no one is going to cast a blind eye to all this now or later on.
The most right-wing Tory MPs don't like Boris, they only agreed to him being leader in their desperation to get Brexit done, depending on who you listen to Brexit is now either done or not getting done (Baker is the latter camp), either way - time to get rid of the chump of a leader.

Nearly seven as poor Petronella Wyatt’s mother would testify

It is still mind boggling that Boris has got to where he is in light of his past history
For Christ's sake does it really matter how many children Boris has? Earl Grey had about 15 and no-one batted an eye-lid back then. Get back to the current situation.

It is part of the current situation
His whole character and integrity (what little he has) is presently in question
Unless you have failed to realise that ?
Sticky, how does the number of children he has affect his integrity?

Look at the story behind how it could have been seven
Look at how he lied about it and the lies he told her
Look at why Michael Howard sacked him for lying about it

Do you see a pattern ?
Nothing is going to go anywhere until the Grey Report is issued.

If, as leaks suggest, she will find nothing illegal has been done, then the compulsion to resign will retreat.

There is the morality of the behaviour that has gone on, but that can, and will, be ridden out by the PM and the government.

Boris has seen no evidence of bullying

But give it a week and he may remember

Unless he subsequently claims it was a stern talking to

Provided that nobody told him that it was

Impossible to believe a single word he says any more
