BREAKING: Senior backbencher and committee chair Will Wragg accuses whips, No 10 and spads of blackmail.

MPs have faced "pressure & intimidation" for calling for PM to go.

Including cutting investment from constituencies and releasing embarrassing stories.

Is that not their job? Est quod est.

I hope he's smart enough not to have made these allegations without evidence to back them up.  If he has, you'll simply see a closing of ranks and an early end to his own political career.

As Johnson is rolling out the old chestnut 'Seen no evidence' excuse rather than bluntly denying it was happening suggests that Wragg has whatever he needs to back it up.

Is that not their job? Est quod est.

Personal threats to career progression/ dishing the dirt is the way the whipping system has always worked. But threatening to withdraw constituency funding, thus affecting constituents rather than the MP themselves, would be of totally different order.

But then again as the PM one was involved in a plot to beat a journalist up its not a surprise really.

That was the Conservative headed letter to residents of Chesham and Amersham, a fairly safe seat - whose byelection was only triggered by the passing of a popular Conservative MP. Backfired spectacularly.

Publication of the Sue Gray report is now being delayed until after the Met have concluded their investigation.  Tricky for the Tories now.  The report was providing MPs with an excuse to avoid breaking cover.  But now publication is not going to be imminent, waiting for publication before deciding whether to call for Johnson's resignation is no longer viable.

Johnson himself will see this, and may choose to take the matter in to his own hands before the flurry of letters goes in to Graham Brady.  I've never seen a PM resign in disgrace during my lifetime.  But could well be about to change.

tricky? I'd say it's ideal.

do nothing "pending police investigation" and see if it all blows over

you can't tell me either Gray or Dick (or both) aren't complicit in the timing of this.

eventually some people will be found to have broken the rules and will have to resign. it won't be Johnson

Thing is the Met are complicit in this as they counted everyone into and out of Downing Street, so if it were a real investigation it would be done by a third party force... But then again the Daniel Morgan investigation reported the Met is institutionally corrupt so why should we be surprised!
