I expect Johnson is likely to cling on to power tonight, he has the backing of his cabinet and they will be putting pressure onto backbenchers as well. The opposition to Johnson appears not to be as organized as the ERGs to Theresa May, and she survived her vote of confidence. However, as I say above, she won her Vote of Confidence and then went just a few months later. So I suspect Johnson will survive tonight's vote, then still end up out within the next 12 months.
PSA: The "verified" symbol you see on Twitter etc means absolutely nothing on Mastodon or the Fediverse. On here, symbols like are just custom emoji that anyone can use and put after their name. Don't be fooled! 😁
There are ways to verify your identity on here, but the symbol is not one of them.
The easiest way to verify your identity is if you have a website that people already know is yours. You can paste a special code into your website which will verify your address and it will turn green on your Mastodon profile (see here for instructions: https://mstdn.social/@feditips/106274105538953001).
Alternatively, you can set up a server as a subdomain of your known website address. For example, the European union set up their own Mastodon server at https://social.network.europa.eu, and we know it really is the EU because the server address is part of the EU's well-known europa.eu domain.
