In a shocking prediction, both Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg have been forecasted to lose their seats at the next general election. According to UK Polling Report, the swing towards the Labour Party would wipe out the comfortable majority that Johnson earned in 2019.
Johnson, who was forced to resign amidst several scandals, including his mishandling of the Covid-19 pandemic and his controversial lockdown parties, is predicted to lose his Uxbridge and South Ruislip constituency to Labour candidate Danny Beales, who is predicted to gain 50.9% of the vote, while Johnson is on 37.2%.
Meanwhile, Jacob Rees-Mogg, another senior Tory, is predicted to lose his North-East Somerset constituency to the Labour candidate, with Rees-Mogg at 34.3% and Labour at 38.2%, giving the Labour party a majority of 3.9%.
The predictions will be concerning for the Conservative Party, which has been dogged by a series of scandals and controversies in recent years. While they currently hold a majority in Parliament, losing seats to Labour could see them lose their grip on power and lead to a major shakeup in UK politics.
The news has been met with mixed reactions, with some hailing it as a much-needed change, while others expressed concern at the prospect of a Labour government. Whatever happens, it seems that the next general election will be a closely fought battle between the two major parties, with everything to play for.
