The Prime Minister’s position is looking increasingly precarious with pressure mounting amid alleged lockdown parties
It could be a decisive day for Boris Johnson who will shortly face his first PMQ’s since leaked emails revealed a party was organised on May 20th 2020 in the garden of Number 10 Downing Street, while the public endured strict lockdown rules.
The news has infuriated a large portion of the British public with many calling for the Prime Minister to resign. Bookmakers have responded by cutting odds for Boris Johnson to leave his role as PM in 2022, currently a best price of 4/6 despite being as short as 4/9 elsewhere.
The way in which Johnson responds to questions today could seal his fate with some expecting an apology for attending the alleged party.

For those who expect Johnson to weather this latest storm and survive in his role as PM, an exit date of 2023 or later is currently best odds of 11/10.
So far, there has been no official confirmation as to whether the Prime Minister attended the party. Labour’s deputy leader, Angela Rayner, believes Johnson’s position is ‘untenable’ if he was present at the party and lied about it.
