I don't think he's close or under pressure to resign right now.

Nah, he'll be gone before then. He's been complaining bitterly he can't afford to live on a PM's salary and can't even afford a nanny for his 12th child
Bearing in mind he was taken to the cleaners by his most recent ex-wife for his serial infidelities he'll be raking it in as a newspaper columnist again .

Sure, if Starmer takes a big lead. He's not doing that at the moment, though, from what I can see.

The trajectory is clear and obvious

Keir Starmer overtakes Boris Johnson in best Prime Minister poll

A YouGov poll published on Friday put Starmer 10% ahead of the incumbent PM for popularity.

Over a third of Britons (36%) think the Labour leader would make a better head of government, compared with 26% for Johnson. Just over a third (36%) remain undecided.

The latest YouGov/Times voting intention figures also showed Labour with 40% of the vote, meaning they're now ahead of the Conservative Party who have 35%. Last week the two parties were neck and neck with 38% each.

He was always going when Brexit is resolved- I’d imagine he was originally off with Cummings in January , now he’ll probably have to stay until the vaccine rolls out.

Published by Statista Research Department, Dec 11, 2020
As of December 2020, 38 percent of British adults intend to vote for the Labour party in a potential general election in the United Kingdom, with 38 percent also advising they would vote for the Conservative party meaning that Boris Johnson's ruling party has seen a huge 24-point lead over their nearest rivals, the Labour Party completely disappear in the space of seven months.

Not at all - I'm saying that a lot can change in seven months. We're in the middle of a pandemic and Labour haven't taken the lead. And it'll all be a distant memory by the time the next GE rolls around.

Eh? He won a GE landslide. He's not going anywhere unless or until the majority of Conservative MPs believe he's too toxic for re-election. He's made a succession of bad calls over Covid and he's going to be absolutely hammered by the MSM and remainers if there's a no-deal Brexit - so unless the vaccination roll-out is an unparalleled success and UK can get back on it's feet sharpish he'll be lucky to last the full term.

I think he needs more experience. His popularity is based on giving lots of money away. Gove is a credible replacement but there's something undeniably off about him.

At least Thatcher could string together a coherent sentence... Patel is a vacuous, opportunist bint.

People have short memories and BJ will win in 4 years. TBH the Tories will win with anybody charge because people don't trust Labour. I say anybody, perhaps not anybody as John Taylor found to his cost in 1992.

And in 2017 Corbyn and Labour polled higher than May and the Tories who then had just lost a majority. How did that turn out next election?

Labour aren't even polling the highest they have in the past 6 months. It's posibile Starmer benefitted very much from a new leader bounce and COVIDs division of opinion due to the Government's handling of it. Most European leaders are taking a knocking over COVID at the moment. But that won't be/will be less of a factor in 4 years time. We can speak about also how polls always seem to under represent a Tory vote for the past 3 decades exempting possibly the Blair era.

Likewise the Tory support hasn't dipped that much. It seems to hover around 40% at it's worst given many of the pandemic handling criticisms they have had. Matthew Goodwin's analysis was that Starmer has absorbed the sorts of people who fit the prior profile of metropolitan Labour voters. He hasn't yet expanded his appeal to the seats he needs to win. Likewise his approval ratings are slowly drifting downwards. Boris' and again static and possibly drifting upwards. How the impact of 2020/the year of COVID will influence next election remains to be seen. It's been such a unique factor we have no real comparison to draw firm conclusions from.

People have consistently underestimated Johnson. I'm not saying he's a good PM or even a competent one but it's difficult to argue that he doesn't know how to play the political game.

I think it depends on Carrie. If Carrie starts pushing her Woke agenda too much then the Tory MPs will get rid of him and put Sunak in.

Also if they feel the Coronavirus restrictions have gone on too long and are damaging the economy too much they will get rid of him and put Sunak in.

The Tory party is ruthless when it comes to getting rid of its leader
