That's a massive turnaround for you. Quite impressed :-)
We have the re-hashed 'Islamaphobia' confected 'row' that suddenly-appears two days ago. Today, what a surprise,we have a leaked email showing that lied about the Afghan animal rescue. This is an internal coup that never stops giving. Not defending Boris but, wow, this is from his own side.
Gulliver. He's a serial liar and not fit to be PM.
I don’t understand.
Why would there be a general election?
Question Author
15.39 The animal rescue was probably organised by The deputy PM.. Carrie.
Or more accurately, who would the government call an election, even with a change of PM, while at the same time thinking it would lose?
Question Author
How could anyone in their right mind, even think about voting again for this
...... the most corrupt Uk Goverment ever, under the leadership of Johnson.
They are worried perhaps some of them about losing their seats when eventually the government HAS to call an election ..

Which is unlikely to be for a while
Folk in their right mind may agree. But then look at the alternatives and decide Reform is the only option left.
As far as I know even if the PM goes the new leader of the conservative party will be the new PM. Can you explain how you think an early general election could come about?

Think Tony Blair ought to come back into politics and take over.
...... he was a Real Prime Minister.....
//I don’t understand.

Nor do I. The Fixed Term Parliament Act provides only two ways for Parliament to be dissolved before the set period. One is that a vote of "No Confidence" in the government is passed by the House (requiring 50% +1 of those present to agree). The other is for two thirds of the total number of MPs (including vacant seats) to vote in favour.

At present there are 637 voting members of the Commons. There are two vacancies. The 7 Sinn Fein members do not vote and nor do the Speaker and his three deputies (unless involved in a "tie-breaker"). The Tories have 357 voting members in the Commons, the rest have 280 between them. This means to see a successful "No Confidence" vote (assuming all 637 voting members turned up) 39 Tories would have to vote that they have no confidence in the government led by their own party - an action which may see them lose their seats. To secure the two thirds majority necessary for agreement, 434 votes must be cast in favour, meaning that no fewer than 154 Tories must agree to the measure.

Why would sufficient numbers of Conservative MPs vote in favour of either of these measures? So unless gulliver can provide us with some evidence to show who issued this warning and on what basis, the question is entirely irrelevant.

Bring a General Election on now,and let the Country decide whether Boris is worth saving or getting rid of.... not just his own MPs
The Tories would not risk that right now ,,,,,
............They know they would get slaughtered.........Bring it on...
Ok but can you explain how you think that may come about?
Good luck with that ...
Another Gulliver's Fantasy post.

Iain Duncan Smith , Says ,,Tory Mps will decide in the next few days
.. whether to oust Boris or not ....
....have you got your back stabbing knife ready..Iain ???
(who's he talking to? ....Anybody?)
There was someone on the TV yesterday saying that if there were a new leader elected, the opinion would be that to demonstrate they had the authority to lead the country, a General Election would be called.

Very possibly true. Explain how you get from that to an early General Election (NJ does not hold his breath).
