Major 1922 Committee crunch meeting TONIGHT to try to oust Boris Johnson – but he may resign first | The Sun
The Prime Minister could be forced out of No10 TONIGHT as Tory MPs solidify their plans to get rid of him.
The 1922 backbench committee will be meeting at 5pm this evening and are expected to hold a crunch vote of no confidence in Boris Johnson.
The Sun understands that 1922 chiefs will first try and beg BoJo to leave on his own accord first.
If that does not happen they will proceed to oust him with a vote.
Fuming Tory MPs have been sending letters in their droves to 1922 Chair Sir Graham Brady, demanding the committee acts now.
Friends of the PM have also been to see him in parliament to privately say that his time is up.
Michael Gove and Liam Fox are among them.
