Demands for Prime Minister Boris Johnson to be reinstated as Conservative party leader are ramping up with more than 10,000 Conservative members now demanding a vote on the matter.

The Conservative Post’s ‘Boris on the Ballot’ petition was launched last Monday (18 July 2022) where it has since racked up more than 10,000 member signatures in just a week.

Conservative party members are required to enter proof of membership in order to sign the petition which is then immediately sent to Conservative Party Chairmen Ben Elliot and Rt Hon Andrew Stephenson MP.

The petition is also being backed by Conservative party donor Lord Cruddas and former Conservative MEP David Campbell Bannerman.

Billionaire Lord Cruddas, who is also a former party treasurer and author of the bestselling autobiography Passport to Success: From Milkman to Mayfair, explained:

“The membership are very upset about what has happened to our elected leader and we demand our say.”

Mr Bannerman, who is the chair of two Conservative associations and related to former Prime Minister Henry Campbell-Bannerman, added:

“The heat on the board is intense because you are destroying an election winner. It’s suicidal for the Tory party. You are guaranteeing a Labour victory.

“The members deserve the choice of whether to retain Boris as Leader or to dismiss him. Democracy demands a separate Boris ballot.”

Conservative MPs such as Michael Fabricant are now also joining the campaign. Mr Fabricant telling The Telegraph:

“MPs have clearly misread the mood of the party membership on this and so many other matters.

“If I thought Boris were keen – despite the treachery of his ministers – to carry on, I would support Peter Cruddas’s campaign in the blink of an eye.”

Another Cabinet minister reportedly told the Telegraph:

“There is complete and utter despair and disbelief at what has happened. 

“It is no wonder that the grassroots members feel their voices have been cancelled out by a minority in the Parliamentary party.

“These are the same people who year after year, decade after decade, have chosen to silence the membership of the Conservative Party for their own preferment and betterment. And that is wrong.”

The last prime minister to serve a second term after being removed from office was Labour’s Harold Wilson, and before that Boris Johnson’s hero Winston Churchill, who served 1940 to 1945, and then again in 1951 to 1955. 

Boris Johnson has already hinted at a return to the political front line as he said farewell to MPs this week in the House of Commons with the phrase “hasta la vista, baby.”

  1. We (UK) need to fully come out of the EU, and the single market, replace the Human Rights Act with a new British Bill of Rights that can not be abused. We need to be free of the European Court of Human rights, and Court of Justice of the European Union. Take back all our fishing grounds. I.E Get Brexit done.

    your site will not allow me to use a@lenton.org is a ligament email address, so the your site needs fixing

  2. I’ve always voted Conservative.

    I’m not a party member and I wish I was because I would vote to keep Boris.

    Ignore the people at your peril

  3. Boris johnson is one of the best primeministers this country has ever had and to let him go can only be a crime long live boris

    • I will never be ready for Rishi. Will he , won’t he, oh OK, but only if I would lose the election otherwise.

      Disappearing from Parliament to get his leadership campaign ready. Had his leadership website ready in December. Refusing to lower taxes when Boris says lower them. Now he wants to lower then because Liz might win.

      No thank you.

      We want Boris back. He is our PM by rights. Stop the kangaroo court which is a travesty.

      The Kremin had a party when Boris was ousted. What sort of a country is this, that treats our best PM like this.

      The Conservative party is toast after this, unless they reinstate Boris.

      Woe betide us all if Putin threatens us. L

  4. Boris was the reason the conservatives got the votes, if he leaves office there should be a general election and it would be a dead cert that the Conservatives would not be re-elected with any other party leader.

    Boris should stay, he’s the best PM we’ve had in a long time, his only flaw seems to be being too trusting of certain politicians and not putting his foot down with his party when necessary.

    I would become a member just for the vote if he stood to remain.

  5. How can we vote for the back stabbing idiot Rishi
    Boris was just getting started
    He as had such a bad 3 years but he got us through it
    He’s put our country back on the world stage number 2 America number 1 they think they can ignore the people who voted for him your wrong this was a coup to oust Boris back benchers and media did this
    Now they have given labour a chance now to get in idiots idiots idiots

  6. Where can us common old voters voice our opinion and vote for the Conservative Party to keep Boris please,?

  7. Boris has been totally stitched up by the MSM and the snakes in Whitehall. Those Conservative MPs who turned on him should hang their heads in shame …. and they should beware …. ‘the truth ALWAYS outs’!

  8. Boris needs to come back. He is so honest, down to earth and genuine and would be just the guy to have a pint down the local with. He just loves the working class people and is doing so so much to help. The sneks in the party have been after him for ages!

  9. The Privileges Committee set up to investigate whether Boris lied to MPs over Partygate intend to find him guilty whether he knowingly or unintentionally misled MPs over being present at a small birthday party held in a workplace bubble. In other words Guilty no matter what. Blair knowingly misled Parliament over WMD, a far more grave offence and no-one hounded him out of his job like this howling mob baying for Boris’s blood. The privileged w**K**rs committee being chaired by Labour’s Harriet Harman is composed of his Brexit-blocking political opponents. We all know this show trial has been rigged for the express purpose of forcing a by-election and depriving him of his constituency so as to prevent him from entering politics again. Why do members of the public like myself have to defend a man we all respect when Tory MPs have the power to stop this WITCH HUNT in its tracks? The politically motivated “investigation” (more like the Spanish Inquisition) reeks to high heaven and stinks of corruption. This level of vindictiveness will not be forgotten. If allowed to go ahead, the entire party will BE TAINTED and pay the price at the next general election.

  10. Most MP’s acted like lemmings once one jumped the rest followed as for Rishi he jumped for his own goal and his own gratification only to come out with a video days after which took months to put together once he had stabbed Boris in the back………..Rishi he can’t be trusted and should be expelled from the party

    Im not a member but have always voted

    You do need to sort your party out

  11. Boris is a true visionary. Such a brilliant politician, so honest and hardworking, and I just love his hairdo!!! 😍

  12. Small MPs who deal with small issues of the running of local school buses etc should not have the power to oust Boris .. as they did Thatcher ., the people voted Tory for him! I don’t even know my MP but I voted Tory ..
    He’s the only one with guts .. those two seem clueless ..
    We want Boris back

  13. Too many lily-livered, opportunist Tory MPs, who owe their seats to Boris, have been cowed by a malevolent media circus led by an over influential, charter-busting BBC. Boris signed up and was elected to do a job, knew what had to be done and did it. To do what the country needed, like Winston Churchill, he had to tread on a few toes, make a few mistakes perhaps, and leave some people unhappy. So what! he made enemies… so did Churchill. With a Socialist administration almost inevitable, the country will once again suffer. We’ve not had a PM with a real personality for years, now the last thing we need is Mr Punch look-alike Starmer, who couldn’t make up his mind over Brexit and has no more personality than a mop-bucket! Good luck with the petition.

  14. I agree with William Wheelright and the others. The MPs that ousted Boris need banning. They have done this against the will of the Conservative Party Members. I am furious.

    I don’t think any of those who caused Boris to be ousted should be allowed to continue as MPs because they have plotted against him against the will of the people. We voted Boris in and we have not voted him out.

    Reinstate Boris at once.

  15. Do not allow Boris to resign. Sunak is not to be trusted , he is not loyal to the party and his actions towards Boris have shown his true character .

  16. I cannot think of anyone who would be better than Boris. At the moment the two candidates left in the race for Prime Minister spend the time arguing and talking over each other – not a very edifying spectacle. I do not want either of them as Prime Minister. Boris should have been left in power until the next General Election when ALL voters would have a chance to have their say. We want Boris back!

  17. When Boris announced his resignation, I thought at the time that Liz Truss would be the only alternative and I will gladly vote for her if events turn out that way. BUT I agree that, despite his many faults and the fact that he worked himself into the inevitable corner, Boris remains the best person amongst MPs to lead the Party

  18. I Eco-what said above
    Lis Truss strong candidate and can deliver
    In this particular occasion would be voting for her
