Boris, if you don’t pull something out of the hat, you’ll lose the Red Wall.

BORIS JOHNSON has an incredible ability to enrage his opponents.

Right now, his issue is that so many of his opponents are on his side.

At Prime Minister’s Questions this week, there were yawning gaps on the benches behind him, as Conservative MPs showed their displeasure by refusing to show up to support him.

They are enraged at the Prime Minister for mishandling the issue of MPs with second jobs.

Older Conservative MPs, many of whom have large outside earnings, are angry with him for failing to uphold their traditional right to earn extra money.

Meanwhile, new MPs elected in 2019 in Labour-held Red Wall seats are furious with him for failing to act on what appears to them and many of their constituents to be pure greed.

Both sides complain that Mr Johnson wants to “have his cake and eat it” on this divisive issue.

The Prime Minister’s future is guarded by the Red Wall.

Even his harshest critics would admit that during the General Election in December 2019, he demonstrated a remarkable ability to persuade Labour voters that a government led by him would be better for them.

That accomplishment is now in jeopardy.

The PM faces accusations that he is a leader who does not keep his promises, following this week’s U-turn on HS2, the failure to stop record numbers of migrants pouring across the Channel, and the lack of visible progress to level up the neglected Red Wall towns in the north of England.

It’s no surprise that he spent Thursday on a train tour of the North, attempting to persuade voters that his new rail plan is superior to the one it replaces.

Mr Johnson is unrivaled as a salesman.

Voters will be looking for tangible evidence of delivery by the time of the next General Election in 2023 or 2024.

There must be tangible signs of revival in the Red Wall seats, which have been left to rot for generations by both major parties.

The condition of the main street in the neighborhood will be critical.

Is it just boarded-up shops and pound stores, or is it once again a place where people can walk down and be proud of?

Is new industry filling the void left by the demise of old ones, and have local bus and train services improved?

He’s called a coward, a liar, a lightweight, and an incompetent who brings his country’s name into disrepute…
