Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg predicted to lose their seats at next election

The 28-point swing in favour of Labour would wipe out the comfortable majority Johnson earned in 2019.

Boris Johnson

Disgraced former Prime Minister Boris Johnson is predicted to lose his seat at the next general election, after his scandal hit years as leader of the Conservative Party.

Johnson, who was booted from office after a series of scandals, including lockdown parties in Downing Street and his handling of the Chris Pincher scandal, is likely to be ousted from Westminster too at the next general election.

Figures from the UK Polling Report show that Labour Candidate Danny Beales is predicted to gain 50.9% of the vote, while Johnson is on 37.2% in the Uxbridge and South Ruislip constituency.

The 28-point swing in favour of Labour, as currently forecast, would wipe out the comfortable majority Johnson earned in 2019.

Other senior Tories predicted to lose their seats also include Jacob Rees-Mogg. Polling puts Rees-Mogg on 34.3%, with Labour on 38.2%, giving the Labour Party a majority of 3.9% in the North-East Somerset Constituency.
