How Boris Johnson can regain control of the Tory party after the confidence vote

iNews

Director Will Tanner wrote for the ipaper discussing strategies for the Prime Minister to regain control of the Conservative Party. He writes:

“Too often, this Government has given the impression that it is carefree with constitutional norms and conventions that voters assume conservatives are sworn to protect. It is much harder to convince voters you believed you were following the rules in good faith when, for example, a Cabinet minister admits a new bill will break the law from the despatch box of the House of Commons.

“It is a tragedy that just two and half years after a landslide fourth victory, built around a historic voter coalition and with the Labour Party in disarray, the Conservative Party finds itself in such straits. But it is in moments like this when political parties either earn their mandate to govern, or retreat into themselves and end up in opposition. This should be the shot across the bows that the Government needs, and the beginning of a renewal.”
