’22 Committee Reportedly Set to Make a Move

There are some reports that the 1922 Committee may move in the next 24 hours-or-so to dispose of the PM. Bloomberg is reporting that “The Tory backbench 1922 Committee will meet at 5 p.m. Wednesday and will discuss changing the rules to allow another party-leadership ballot. If there is a majority opinion in favor, a ballot could be held as soon as next week.” James Forsyth of the Spectator reports rule change or not, a senior committee member tells him “they now favour a delegation going to Johnson to tell him that it is over and that they will change the rules to allow another vote if he doesn’t quit”.

Looking at a list of the executive members it appears a majority now favour a rule change:

  • Mark Pawsey: In favour of rule change
  • John Stevenson: In favour of rule change
  • Alicia Kearns: In favour of rule change
  • Will Wragg: In favour of rule change
  • Robert Halfon: In favour of rule change
  • Tom Hunt: In favour of rule change
  • Gary Sambrook: Probably in favour of rule change
  • Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Possibly in favour of rule change
  • Jason McCartney: Probably against rule change
  • Sheryll Murray: Probably against rule change
  • Martin Vickers: Probably against rule change
  • David Morris: Probably against rule change
  • Bob Blackman: Probably against rule change
  • Bernard Jenkin: Unknown
  • Graham Brady: Unknown
  • Nus Ghani: Unknown

Even if Jenkin, Brady and Ghani all voted against a rule change it would only be a straight draw…
