People shared their two cents on Johnson's sentiments about the Jubilee festivities uniting the country and bringing it together and how it seemed to cause people to band against him.
\u201c@KarlTurnerMP @BorisJohnson @StPaulsLondon @carrielbjohnson Boris Johnson said that the Jubilee would unite the country and bring it together, however I suspect he didn't mean united and together against him.\u201d
\u201cIf I was a wavering Tory MP this would worry me even more than opinion polls. To lose *this* crowd is an absolute nightmare for an administration desperately appealing to confected \u2018culture wars\u2019 & bogus patriotism.\u201d
Following the report, Johnson received a fine for attending the parties.
A backbench revolt by Tory MPs could be in the offing, with rumours of a no-confidence vote.
Tory peer Lord Finkelstein was one of many Conservatives who said booing from a largely royalist crowd was a worrying sign for the PM.
Writing in The Times, he said: "Can Queen Elizabeth's current prime minister be similarly dismissive of today's booing (as I believe it is called)? I think not.
Who, after all, stands outside St Paul's for hours to watch members of the royal family attend a jubilee thanksgiving service? Primarily people who respect tradition, enjoy pageantry, feel positive about British institutions and want to witness a moment of history.
A Conservative prime minister should be worried about being booed by people like that. Not every person in that crowd is a habitual Tory voter by any means.
But a direct marketing company using social habits to predict behaviour might use attendance at such an event as a signifier that the person was open to voting Conservative. This is not a crowd that a Tory wants to lose."
