Boris Johnson faces two big threats this December: losing a general election and losing his seat in Uxbridge and South Ruislip.

The Prime Minister is up against candidates from Labour, the Liberal Democrats, the Green Party and the Brexit Party.

His main competition looks to be to Labour’s Ali Milani after Labour candidate Vincent Lo slashed Johnson’s 10,695 majority from 2015 to 5,034 in 2017.

There is speculation that Johnson may not stand again in the constituency this December to secure a better chance of re-election.

He has been reportedly considering the Conservative ‘safe’ seat of Sevenoaks as well as the Broadland seat in Norfolk.

Uxbridge and South Ruislip has been held by the Conservatives since the constituency’s 2010 creation and voted Leave in the 2016 EU Referendum.

Johnson will also face Elizabeth Evenden-Kenyon from the Liberal Democrats, Mark Keir from the Green Party and Nikki Page from the Brexit Party.

In 2017 the Liberal Democrats won 3.9% of the constituency’s vote and the Green Party won 1.9%.

Not all residents speak favourably of Johnson though, with one woman describing him as a ‘filthy piece of toerag’ to Sky News presenter Sophy Ridge in October.

Conservative party leader Arthur Balfour lost his seat in the 1906 general election, having resigned as Prime Minister a month before.

He lost his Manchester East seat in a nationwide landslide victory for the Liberal Party.

If Johnson lost his seat in December the most likely course of action would be for the cabinet to decide on a replacement Prime Minister.

An early poll from Flavible predicts Johnson will win 50% of the Uxbridge and South Ruislip vote with Labour in second with 21%.
