Desperate Boris Johnson will tomorrow promise to whip out cheap homes and cut taxes while trying to get voters to believe him when he says “I’m on your side.”

After 148 Tory MPs tried to oust him for breaching his own lockdown laws, the PM is desperate for ways to win back support.

In a speech tomorrow, he will explain his “ambition” to allow people in housing association properties to buy their homes at a big discount, copying Margaret Thatcher’s 1980s “right-to-buy” scheme.

His plans include helping people access mortgage assistance, incentivizing them to save for a down payment, and increasing housing supply.

In his speech, Mr Johnson will rant: “We have the tools we need to deal with rising prices. The global headwind is strong. But our engines are stronger.”

He claimed today “nothing and nobody” would stop him from continuing in No. 10. But former cabinet minister David Davis warned the prime minister should “pull it up” or leave office.

Rebellious Tory MPs plan to tear up party rules to allow another confidence vote within six months.

They are trying to bring forward a vote on the composition of the 1922 executive branch to bring on board more MPs who criticize Mr Johnson.

One rebel told the Mirror: “His relationship with the party is like his relationship with his wives. He’ll never leave, but he’ll treat us so badly, lie to us, cheat on us that we’ll eventually have to kick him out.”

Another MP said the cabinet that could collectively urge the Prime Minister to resign was “spineless”.

In his first PMQs since the confidence vote, Mr Johnson tried to claim he had made enemies over some “very big and very remarkable” achievements by his government.

But Labor MP Angela Eagle asked: “If 148 of his own backbenchers don’t trust him, why on earth should the country?”

Mr Johnson is also trying to bolster support by promising to cut taxes amid the cost of living crisis.

Health Minister Sajid Javid said: “I would like to see cuts where they are possible.” The Prime Minister’s press secretary said: “We want to cut taxes as soon as possible.”
