Will or can Boris Johnson bounce back? The Prime Minister has suffered setback after setback and now the Conservatives have lost the safe seat of North Shropshire. Not only were they beaten, they were defeated by a party which is opposed to Brexit. It was a major triumph for the Liberal Democrats but to be fair to the Conservatives the Libs Dems are usually the party which gets Conservative votes when things are not going well for them. One thing about the Conservatives, they will be quick to oust their leader if things are not working; Margaret Thatcher was a classic example.
