Tory MPs are understood to be looking to get rid of Prime Minister Boris Johnson before the next General Election in 2024 as they grow increasingly frustrated at his approach to the coronavirus crisis, which has left behind a crippled UK economy. Critics have accused Mr Johnson of being “obsessed” with Brexit and therefore not well equipped to deal with coronavirus as he reaches his 12-month milestone on Friday.
One Tory MP told The Guardian: “If the economic downturn and the fallout from an inquiry into the pandemic put the party into freefall, some have even begun to think Johnson may need to be replaced before the next election.
“The party has no emotional attachment to Boris because he does not give us something to believe in, apart from as a vehicle for power.
“So a year out, if the polls look bad, it could happen.”

One former Cabinet minister said: “The hard facts are that Boris is a good-time prime minister.
“His grip on detail is shocking.”
Of Mr Johnson’s record on the COVID-19 crisis, another Tory MP added: “I think Boris has shown in the first year that the government and the team in No 10 is obsessed – and obsessed isn’t too strong a word – with Brexit.

“And they were caught completely unprepared for COVID because they didn’t put together a government that had anything other than Brexit in mind.”
Mr Johnson’s first year in office has seen Brexit, a baby and a brush with death from coronavirus.
When he became prime minister on July 24 2019, his party was languishing in the polls and had not long suffered one of its worst ever performances at the ballot box, securing just 9 percent of the vote in elections to the European Parliament.
