Piers Morgan makes prediction Boris will be out of job within a year – and names next PM | Politics | News

The outspoken broadcaster raised questions over Mr Johnson’s future as a shock new poll suggested the Tories now trail the Labour Party by six points. The Government has suffered a major backlash ever since Tory MPs attempted to re-write the rules in a bid to delay the suspension of former minster Owen Paterson for breaking lobbying rules.

Allegations of Tory sleaze have also dogged the Government after it emerged several Tory parliamentarians have taken lucrative second jobs.

In a post on Twitter, Mr Morgan insisted the Prime Minister’s days were numbered and predicted Chancellor Rishi Sunak would take over the top job.

Reacting to the latest poll, he tweeted: “Boris ‘laws are made to be broken’ Johnson’s sleazy chickens are coming home to roost.

“I predict Rishi Sunak will be Prime Minister within a year.”

The latest Savanta ComRes poll suggested there has been a nine-point swing in favour of the Labour Party in the last week.

The survey conducted from November 11-12 put Labour on 40 percent of the vote, with the Tories trailing on 34 percent.

A week earlier, a Savanta ComRes poll conducted on November 5-11, had the Tories leading on 38 percent and Labour on 35 percent.

A separate survey carried out by Redfield & Wilton Strategies on Wednesday put Labour two points ahead of the Conservatives.

The next general election is set for May 2024 but could take place earlier as ministers are in the process of replacing the Fixed-term Parliament Act.

The Tories will face the electorate next month when two by-elections take place.

A vote will be held next month in Mr Paterson’s North Shropshire constituency after he resigned.

A second by-election will take place in Old Bexley and Sidcup to replace former Tory minister James Brokenshire who died of cancer last month.

The Prime Minister visited the London constituency on Friday and was confident of a victory.

When asked whether he feared public concern over standards would lose the Tories the by-election, Mr Johnson said: “No, because Louie French is running a great campaign on the big issues that matter to people.

“He is building on the legacy of James Brokenshire, ensuring that Queen Mary Hospital has ever better faculties and making sure that we have ever safer streets in Greater London.”

The Conservatives currently hold a majority of 18,952 in Old Bexley and Sidcup, and a majority of 22,949 in North Shropshire.

The Savanta ComRes poll for the Daily Mail asked 2,019 UK adults from November 11-12.
