8:04 pm
then he gets to stay in office or at least immune from this sort of challenge by his own party for the next 12 months under the current rules. if he loses this vote, well then there is no going back. his tenure as prime minister will end, and he will stay on as a caretaker. while his party exxon undertakes a leadership contest through the summer to decide who should replace him. and what's, what's the sense there in the corridor was behind you about how this could develop a, it's extremely difficult even to make an educated guess quite simply because it is a secret balance. and even those m. p 's who have professed public support from a prime minister made in the event a vote against him. it is generally thought that he will win because there is a large proportion of m. p.

8:06 pm
only to find that those setting the rules. what breaking them. you must obey the rooms. as the country retreated into lockdown under development orders, boris johnson insisted that no restrictions were broken. but more and more covert rule breaking by government officials was leaked and splashed across the front pages, the public learning of weekly wine evenings. and boozy leaving dues one bash was on the eve of prince philip the duke of edinburgh funeral with a country and national morning. and queen elizabeth forced to sit apart from her family downing street, was forced to issue a statement of deep regret to buckingham palace. mister speaker, i want to apologize. and johnson personally apologized for attending a drinks party in a downing street garden. he thought it was a work haven't he said. and within government rules, is he now going to take
8:07 pm
a decent thing and reside the explanation enraged mpi and infuriated the public. the rear skirting controversy was floundering oh, ridiculed by a wine bottle wielding flash mob outside downing street. we were witnessing every day, the broken spectacle of a prime minister minded to seek to de section an unable to lead. but things were to get even worse for johnson with claims. he had a surprise birthday bash complete with cake at number 10 during lockdown. and then a bombshell announcement by british police, they were launching a criminal investigation into rule breaking at number 10. johnson was deemed to have broken the rules and find $60.00. a month later, the report by top civil servant su gray made its findings public. the $48.00 page
