London: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, on Monday, successfully saved his government. The Labour Party, the opposition outfit, failed to unseat Johson. He survived a confidence vote on Monday, but a large rebellion in his Conservative Party over the so-called “partygate” scandal dealt a blow to his authority, and finally he had managed everything shrewdly to save his government.
Johnson, who swept the 2019 elections, has been under intense scrutiny since he and some of his colleagues were held in an alcoholic party in his Downing Street office and residence while the country was in lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Although he survived, the vote was a big blow to Johanson’s image. 41% of his lawmakers voted against him. They are against him due to scandals and gaffes that have raised many eyebrows about his governance style.
But Johnson, who is known to comeback strongly in the political field, instead described the vote as a “decisive result”, meaning that “as a government, we can move on and focus on the stuff that I think really matters to people”.
Johnson has spent weeks attempting to divert national attention away from “partygate.” In the end, he succeeded successfully for the moment, but he needs to improve his style of governance. Otherwise, any result will come out in the future.
