those close to him say that is not impossible - today’s crisis for Johnson would be pretty close to catastrophe.

Ex loyal aide to and ex minister @DavidGHFrost is clear yesterday’s by-election results were not a “normal” mid term protest vote but were about “people who voted for us in 2019 refusing to come out and do so again”. He urges his colleagues to decide “what we do about it”
In reply to @DavidGHFrost
So, in contrast to many 'normal' mid-term by-elections, these do not show strong protest votes for the opposition. They show people who voted for us in 2019 refusing to come out and do so again. We as @Conservatives must decide why that is, and what we do about it. (4/4)

How will Boris Johnson cope with the government’s soaring interest bill? Financing costs for the government are soaring, at a time when pressures on it to spend much more to ease the cost-of-living squeeze and cut taxes are intensifying. There will be pain itv.com/news/2022-06-2…

this economic and financial shock and set out a plan - rather than whacking moles on a daily basis, to use a Johnsonian metaphor - will only intensify.

.@Peston: How much per asylum seeker is the government going to pay you?

@YolandeMakolo: “These figures are still being worked out”

Rwandan Government Spokesperson says after an initial package of £120 million, the cost per asylum seeker is yet to be worked out.

Does the Labour Party support or oppose rail workers going on strike?

According to a poll by @YouGov the public aren't sure🤔

💥28% think Labour support the strikes whilst 8% say the opposite
💥21% think neither
💥But by far the biggest group - 43% - don't know

Asked if she thinks there will be “weeks and months of industrial disputes”, @MaryBoustedNEU says she does, adding that they are seeking direct contact with the government after losing faith in the pay review body.

“The strike thresholds are incredibly high”

Joint General Secretary of the National Education Union @MaryBoustedNEU tells @Peston she hopes the dispute does not escalate to the point of going on strike but notes anger amongst teachers is the ‘greatest it’s ever been’.

@RobertJenrick tells @Peston there needs to be pay restraint in the public sector amidst fears of a return to the economic weaknesses of the 1970’s.

“We’re not muddled at all… This is a situation that needs to have the government involved”

@EmilyThornberry defends @UKLabour’s position on the RMT strikes, saying that if they were in government, they would be “trying to bring both sides together”.

“Employers are ready to do a deal with us, the government are stopping them negotiating”

@RMTUnion Leader Mick Lynch suggests the government prevented progress in today’s negotiations between employers and trade unions, meaning strike action will continue.

“I think they plan to have this dispute continue”

RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch argues that although the government think they can condemn strikers as “communists and marxists”, the level of support the RMT are receiving is “astounding”.

The reason I asked this is @grantshapps told Piers Morgan tonight he had never met @RMTunion’s Mick Lynch. But Lynch says that is not so
.@Peston: “Have you ever met @GrantShapps?”

@RMTUnion: “I met him on a zoom call when he wanted something out of us…”

RMT’s Mick Lynch confirms he has met @GrantShapps, adding that he’d “speak to them tonight” if he had the chance.
