These Conservative PMs direct Boris Johnson

As is clear in this SKY report on 13th December 2018 “their failure to remove the prime minister, who secured 200 votes in her favour compared to 117 against, those opposed to Mrs May returned to their efforts on Thursday”. Then later in the report there is an interview “Mr Rees-Mogg said it was “not impossible” that, on reflection, Mrs May would decide to stand aside. “You may remember that Margaret Thatcher … said ‘We fight on, we fight to win’,” he said. “Nobody was tougher than Mrs Thatcher and the next day she resigned. So, it’s not impossible. I think Theresa May should consider what she said last night. “I agree with her that we do want somebody who can unite the country and the Conservative Party, and she has to ask herself is she realistically that person?”

So the results were:

Major – 71% Support

May – 63% Support

Johnson – 59% Support

Thatcher – 57% Support

Clearly Thatcher responded to her lack of support within 24 hours – how long will it take for Johnson to respond. Indeed given how Jacob Rees-Mogg stated for May and Thatcher, he must surely be speaking to his current Prime Minister on the same basis?
