Will radical new green agenda sink Boris Johnson? | Eastern North Carolina Now | turmoil in British Conservative Party

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Boris Johnson's approval ratings in British polls are even lower than those of Joe Biden in the US.  Johnson has presided over the largest tax increase in decades, authoritarian measures on the Covid virus, and more recently a radical green agenda.  His party even lost what had been a very safe Conservative parliament seat in a recent special election.

Now backbenchers in the Conservative Party are starting to rebel. At least twelve have already sent "no confidence" letters against Johnson to the party's 1922 committee.  If 54 such letters are submitted, it requires a vote on whether to continue Johnson as prime minister or select another Conservative.

A senior Tory member of parliament told The Sun newspaper "There is real anger. He has until Spring to get back on track or he is in real trouble. Letters have gone in.  I am on the cusp myself."


Earlier this year, a power struggle within Johnson's inner circle between his longtime chief advisor Domminic Cummings, a small "c" conservative who had been with Johnson since his days as Mayor of London, and Johnson's longtime mistress (whom he has recently married) Carrie Symonds, a globalist and climate alarmist activist who has been nicknamed "Princess Nut-Nut'' within government circles, resulted in Cummings ouster and a lurch to the left by Johnson.  This has led to the rise of the new Reform Party to the Conservatives' right which has now reached double digits in the polls, and the Conservatives falling to second place in the polls.

On energy, Johnson has gone off the deep end with the green left.  Not only is he promoting huge expansion of wind and solar, which is causing rapidly rising utility bills, but he refuses to let the UK develop its own known gas resources with fracking, and is undecided on even letting a new oil and gas discovery in the North Sea be developed at all.  In a recent speech to a major business group, Johnson raised eyebrows by using a quote from Vladimir Lenin to try to support his green agenda.  The leader of the Reform Party, former EU parliament member RIchard Tice has dubbed Johnson's net zero policies "net stupid." Princess Nut-Nut seems to rule the roost and that is devastating to Conservatives.
