How UK local elections could make or break Boris Johnson

Thursday’s local elections were widely billed as potentially all or nothing for the prime minister. If the Conservatives lose heavily, Tory MPs could conclude that Partygate has seriously damaged their electoral chances and launch a challenge to unseat him. On the other hand, if Tory losses do not appear to be higher than expected in the medium term, Johnson could be able to convince his colleagues to stay with him.

At first glance, the omens do not bode well for Boris Johnson. His party shows no signs of regaining the electoral advantage it had in this parliament until its integrity and ethics became the subject of controversy. On average, the Conservatives are currently six points behind Labour. That equates to a nine-point swing since the 2019 general election.
