The proposed plan goes even further, considering the installation of Nigel Farage in the House of Lords to serve as Johnson’s right-hand man, forming a ‘dream ticket’ aimed at winning over voters.

This potential power shift is fueling political tensions within the Conservative party.

On Tuesday, Sunak faces a critical Commons vote on legislation designed to enable the UK to send illegal migrants to Rwanda.

However, critics, including recently resigned immigration minister Robert Jenrick, argue that the bill lacks the necessary toughness to effectively deter migrants making perilous Channel crossings in small boats.

Jenrick emphasized the importance of creating a sustainable and strong deterrent to protect the country’s borders, expressing dissatisfaction with the current proposed legislation.

Some Tories fear losing to the Labour Party led by Sir Keir Starmer unless Sunak steps down, leading to a reported ‘advent calendar of s***’ devised to undermine his leadership.

The possibility of Boris Johnson’s return is gaining traction among party members, with considerations of Farage’s involvement to neutralize threats from the right-wing Reform Party.
