A month ago, the respective figures were 35 per cent, 58 per cent and seven per cent.
So the effect of Sue Gray’s report has been to push the first figure up to 40 per cent and pull the second down to 53 per cent.
To have over one in three of our Conservative members’ panel believe the Prime Minister should resign is very bad for him – and to have two in five think so is even worse.
As I write, the number of Tory MPs who have said that Boris Johnson should go continues to tick up. It now stands at 29 by my count. Fifty-four letters to Graham Brady are required to trigger a confidence ballot.
The consensus among those I speak to is that over 40 letters will currently be in Sir Graham’s possession, but not all those who have called for the Prime Minister to go have written – at least on their account.
Johnson has escaped more than one fine, and wasn’t directly named as responsible in Gray’s report for the rule-breaking parties, so no wonder a majority of our panel wants to move on.
However, a minority clearly feels that, as Prime Minister, the buck for the parties stops with him – and that he should go.
We now await two by-elections and the Privileges Committee report into whether or not he misled the Commons. As I wrote last week, he has been beginning to break free from the cords that bind him.
But his opponents are scurrying to push him back down, re-fasten the ropes and hammer the nails into the ground. So while some would like nothing more than for events to “move on”, they stubbornly refuse to do so.
What makes Johnson’s plight worse and more significant is the absence of a clear economic and political plan.
