Boris Johnson could lose his seat in Parliament in the next election

London, May 17 (SocialNews.XYZ) An opinion poll in Britain – amid a grim economic situation and growing tension in Northern Ireland – indicates that Prime Minister Boris Johnson will lose his seat in the House of Commons in the next general election.
Johnson is an MP for the West London constituency of Uxbridge and Ruislip.
The survey of 10,000 respondents conducted by multilevel and post-stratification regression (MRP) in April also looked at the prospects of the opposition Labor Party in the election. He found that he would emerge as the largest party, but would not get an 18-seat majority.
On the other hand, if Labor undertook seat adjustments with the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party, the combination would win a comfortable majority. The number 326 is the magic mark of a party or alliance in a chamber of 650 legislators.
Likewise, if the pro-Brexit, pro-Brexit Reform Party withdraws from seats where Johnson’s Conservative Party is vulnerable, it could further hurt Labour’s prospects.
A spokesman for ‘Best for Britain’, an internationalist organisation, said: ‘Once again, Best for Britain’s seat level analysis shows that the surest path to victory in defeating this corrupt government (of Johnson) is for the opposition parties to work together during the election period.
If Labor fails, it could be left to the breakaway Scottish National Party, which could demand Scottish independence or at least another tricky referendum as a condition of its support.
Analysis of ‘Best for Britain’ by Focaldata indicated that 54% of Labor supporters and 56% of Liberal Democrat supporters want their respective leaders to work more closely with the Greens.
However, after taking part in this month’s national local elections, Labor hopes its chances will gradually improve as Johnson and the Tories fall further in public esteem.
Appearing before a select committee of the House of Commons, Governor of the Bank of England, Britain’s central bank, Andrew Bailey warned of “apocalyptic” food prices. He of course blamed this on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Figures due on Wednesday are expected to show that the annual inflation rate has topped 9% and will top 10% when the energy price cap is raised even further in the fall.
“Another factor that we are facing at the moment is a new stage of Covid-19, which is affecting China. We have seen a series of supply shocks in succession and this is unprecedented.
Under such circumstances, Johnson’s consideration of a unilateral abandonment of parts of Northern Ireland’s protocol with the European Union (EU) is seen in political circles as ill-conceived, as the introduction of customs by the EU in retaliation could have had a devastating inflationary effect.
By refusing to accept tax-free trade with the EU and opting for a customs border between mainland Britain and Northern Ireland in the Irish Sea, the Prime Minister has, as one could Predictably, created an economic and political crisis in Northern Ireland in Catholic and Protestant conflict.
So much so that the United States (along with a large Irish American population, including President Joe Biden, as a powerful lobby group), which vouches for the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, which ushered in a peace relative in the region after nearly 75 years of unrest or violence, was forced to intervene.
However, Rishi Sunak, the Indian-born Chancellor of the Exchequer, is reportedly working on tax measures to ease the cost-of-living crisis, after refusing to include them in his budget statement in March.
Measures could include relief for pensioners and benefit claimants and reduced duties on imported food.
