A large number of Tory MPs are fully expecting to lose their seats, even ones with large majorities. It’s simply hard to discipline MP’s when deselection is no longer an effective deterrant. As things get worse for the Tories, more of them may wonder what they have to lose by turning on Sunak.

@@fba90130 Good question! As far as I know, that has never happened in British history and our constitutional order would be unequipped to deal with such a scenario. The King can dissolve parliament, but only at the request of the government. If Sunak was ousted, the party would have to find someone, anyone to step in. I'm sure there would be at least a few MPs within the party who would be dumb enough or believe it to be some kind of patriotic duty to run for leadership. The poor soul filling Sunak's shoes would almost certainly feel immense political pressure to call an election, but doing so during the obvious national scandal it would create would be electoral suicide. It'd essentially be a repeat of what happened at the aftermath of Lizz Truss. If Sunak is running a sinking ship, his replacement would be running one that's already on the sea floor.

Problem with Sunak is twofold, he has no mandate from the public, his whole shtick is being perceived as being more competent than the last two disasters of a PM we had but has not really done anything to benefit the public with the majority he has inherited hence "inaction-man". The second is that the Tories as a whole have not delivered any tangible benefit in their 13 years of stewardship that they can tout, in fact reality is much worse. Trade, public services, infrastructure, crime, illegal immigration, corruption, housing, taxation, government debt, living standards etc etc have gotten worst under them and its clear they have no plan or they would have legislated to remedy this (majority government). As time passes more of the public are waking up to the fact that Sunak and his party only offer empty promises and worthless platitudes.

RAAC was known about in the 1980s, not just August. It was discovered many post-war council houses had been constructed with foamed concrete, where alumina is added to lime and cement. The lime and alumina react, creating bubbles and hence lightweight concrete. However over time, there become too many bubbles . thousands of homes were declared defective and demolished, eg Orlit. It is puerile to suggest therefore that no-one in the political class was aware of the dangers of foamed concrete in schools and hospitals when they were aware of the dangers of foamed concrete in housing. That is truly as pathetic as it is laughable. Yes, Sunak has been passed the parcel with this 40 year problem but he has unfortunately been caught holding the parcel while knowing about it and refusing to spend money repairing it. This is not a good look. Frankly all parties are culpable to varying degrees, but we need action not finger pointing. He wants to be seen as a fixer, fixing the economy etc yet with unsafe public buildings, he is seen as sitting on his hands to the electorate.

It's gotten to the point now that even world leaders across the globe recognise that Sir Kier Starmer is the next PM, so much so the likes of Macron have invited him to talk policy. Now, it's not unusual to see leaders of the opposition be invited, but never to talk actual policy. This is as blatant as it could politically get to say that they expect to no longer be working with the UK's Conservative party in the very near future. It must be incredibly embarrassing for Sunak personally as well. At this point, he will win a VoNC quite easily if one gets called, but it would only weaken him further to the point that he wont be able to get anything done politically. He would be wise to call an election early before facing a VoNC if he wanted to keep his reputation in SOME resemblance.

Every iteration of a Tory govt from the coalition to today has presided over a country dropping deeper and deeper into chaos and despair. They have failed ordinary people (non multi millionaires) on every facet of government. They need to go asap and any change of leadership should be now via a GE. The only concern after that is any new government will inherit such a mess that I can’t see how it can be resolved at the pace the electorate would want.

Sunak's one and only job since her left banking in the city has always been as a low-key senior BD rep for Infosys. Then, he splits his time for this with his other role which is working for free against HMRC for both he and his wife. Everything else, including the British people, is but an afterthought for him - recalled for no longer than a second each time he passes a stool and hits flush.

This weakness with concrete cannot be understated. It will naturally carbonise over time with expose to air losing its strength. England had a huge spate of post war reconstruction all designed with a 60 year design life to BS8110. The 1960's to 2020's is 60 years so all these structures need consideration structurally. Many, many defects were present in concrete constructions 1930's-1980's (lol remember they thought Asbestos was a good idea and even used its powererised form on film sets) and frankly, many structures need remedial measures that would cost more than the rebuild. The issue is it takes 2 years to design and build and furnish a school, longer for other infrastructure like hospitals, rail bridges and water treatment facilities. What do people do without those services in the mean time? The country has too much aging infrastructure and rather than an expected population leveling out or decline, there are more people than ever trying to use systems that were built in the 1960's/ 1970's. We simply cant afford to turn the infrastructre off to repair it, nor to build new to take its place running a 'double system'. (ie build a school on a new patch while the old one carries on before being torn down once the new one is fully functional.) That isnt to mention the skills or labour crisis that the industry is having too. The nation is sleepwalking into total infrastructure collapse. Source, Structural Engineer.

The problem at this point isn't Sunak, I think he is just a the last in the long list of conservative PM's that has taken the helm of a sinking ship, there is no clear vision in the Conservative Party and its clear to say that even the conservative party members have little confidence in the party anymore and this is amplified in the general population. Labour has taken this and run with it, the only issue is that Labour is becoming too much like conservative light with no real announced policies regarding Brexit (So they don't alienate the leave voters) and with the current stance of the current Labour Mayor of London and the current Labour Welsh Assembly is making me lean into thinking that the issue with politics today is the duopoly of Labour and Conservatives, we need a 3rd party to come in and really get politics working for the people again, The majority didn't vote for an expanded ULEZ zone in London or the 20MPH limit in Wales but they did it anyway because they believe that no matter what they do people will still vote them in because the Conservative Party has practically collapsed onto its arse. We need a national 3rd party to come in and remind everyone that they are in power for one reason only, to ensure that the majority of the country agrees with the direction and management of the country!

Sunak popularity is dropping because the party is divided behind him. If they were to pull together and work for Sunak, they might just scrape in. However, the more it looks like they'll lose the next general election, the more they're building their own defences and throwing the government to the wolves. At the moment, Sunak is having to suck up to various factions in his own party which is preventing him from concentrating on his own position. It would be a disaster to have a leadership contest at this stage ... to the party. So, they want Rishi to jump rather than they push him. Then they can look 'loyal' to the party in Opposition and re-build their place at the banquet table.

Similar to a surprise of Vivik Ramswany as the first Indian American president running for the GOP. In that case I could see that out of the blue a Korean descendent candidate running for PM, could get into hot water with Japan at the ICJ. To this I think who replaces Sunak will be someone from Korean ancestry with his last name probably Kim yet a Kim as British PM would be like the British version of Ronald Reagan but with Korea, willing to do anything even to piss off the Japanese government, that write a letter of documentation for the ICJ to oppose Japan over the Liancourt Rocks. The future PM of the UK adding Korea into the mix that someone born in Korea if unified could take a flight from Seoul to London without a passport all to going into documentation that Liancourt becomes another Falkland situation but instead of Argentina it becomes Japan, to probably the new Falkland War will be with Japan instead of Argentina. It is all complex because what will be after Sunak will be an Asian man with the Kim surname will be a British PM of Korean ancestry to unify Korea and add Liancourt into the mix to treat Japan as it where Argentina and Liancourt becomes the new Falklands. To say it the next PM will be British Korean, and yet better off for a certain country not to get into the Liancourt mess that could form BFFs between Japan and Argentina giving Argentina going against Korea over the Liancourt Rocks.

Why is Sunak’s Polling Getting Worse/Dropping Further? Well, in one of the first interviews he did when he became prime minister, he mentioned about showing compassion to those in need.

I am not a Brit, but I moved from the UK to Germany because of Brexit. That topic aside, I personally don’t have anything against the PM or the Party, it’s the policies that they put out and their mindset puts me off. The fact that they think they can fix the existing problems without actually acknowledging the problems. Politicians don’t live like normal people, they don’t have the slightest idea when people cannot pay their mortgage, can’t afford food, whilst being overworked. Until they acknowledge that people are on the edge of losing their home, or children are going hungry to bed, they won’t be able to fix anything. The fact that Sunak himself often being overly optimistic is also a problem. That smile he put on his face while the rest of the people are suffering is rather cunning, it creeps me out sometimes to be honest. But that’s just my personal opinion.
