Following his speech at the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) on Monday, Kuenssberg claimed senior Downing Street sources have called on the Cabinet to wake up. With the Prime Minister facing severe pressure over the Tory sleaze scandal, the source told the BBC journalist the Government is “just not working”. She reported: “There is a lot of concern inside the building about the Prime Minister.

“It’s just not working. Cabinet needs to wake up and demand serious changes otherwise it’ll keep getting worse.

“If they don’t insist, he just won’t do anything about it.”

In a further attack against the Prime Minister, former Brexit Party MEP, Richard Tice, claimed voters in Old Bexley & Sidcup, are beginning to turn on Mr Johnson ahead of the by-election next month. 

With the UK approaching two years since the historic general election, the leader of the Reform Party claimed voters are “furious” over the number of illegal immigrants crossing the Channel.

He said: “Boris now liability on doors of Old Bexley & Sidcup as many lifelong Tory voters say never again until he is gone.

“This is why Tory cabinet members flooding constituency to avoid losing safe seat.

“Voters furious over illegal immigration across Channel & failure to control borders.”

More than 24,700 people have now made the crossing so far this year.

That number has exceeded the number of migrants who crossed the Channel last year, despite the Government’s pledge to take tougher action.

Due to the levels of migrants making the crossing, there have been reports the Prime Minister has become “exasperated”.

The Prime Minister has also called in Stephen Barclay, chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, to review policies on how to stop migrants crossing the Channel.

The backlash over the MPs second jobs and lobbying has also seen the Prime Minister’s popularity drop in the polls.

A YouGov voting intention tracker released on November 12, showed the Tories are now level with the Labour party.

The two parties are now level on 35 while in another poll asking who would be the best Prime Minister, Sir Keir Starmer is now at 30 percent while the Prime Minister stands at 28.

Following Mr Johnson’s speech at the CBI, Tory MPs claimed the party needs to get a grip.

One told The Guardian: “I thought today’s performance was the most embarrassing by a Conservative prime minister since last week’s PMQs.

“Someone needs to get a grip. He is losing the confidence of the party.”

The Prime Minister was dealt a severe blow to his authority after the amendment to the social care plan only passed with a majority of 26.

Although it passed 272 to 246, there were 19 rebels and 70 abstentions despite having a majority of 80.

The YouGov survey was conducted between November 10-11 and asked 1,696 adults.
