Members could be forgiven for feeling politically drunk.
But Boris Johnson is on a roll, righting the government ship after the summer chaos as Britain and the United States were caught off guard as the Taliban swept through Afghanistan to seize power in Kabul .
And on questions from the Prime Minister, he marched into Labor territory, claiming the Tories are now the NHS party, though after a £ 36bn hike on national insurance and dividends sent the nation’s tax burden to the highest level ever. level, according to the Institute of Fiscal Studies.
Conservative MPs could be forgiven for feeling confused.
Many of them have been intimidated, because of the reshuffle, not to rebel against the tax hike or the removal of the £ 20 per week increase in universal credit, a cut some fear will turn into a Poll Tax Mark II.
So an optimistic Mr Johnson has dragged his party into uncharted waters on taxes and spending, rocking the political kaleidoscope.
Conservative MPs wonder how the pieces are falling back into place.
Their hope is that a revitalized government strengthens the Tories’ grip on previous Labor ‘Red Wall’ seats, as Sir Keir Starmer’s legal leadership failed to connect with voters in those constituencies, and the loss of the Chesham and Amersham by-elections was only to be repeated after the controversial planning reforms were laid to rest.

Concern on the Conservative benches will be swept away by Mr Johnson’s momentum after his flurry of announcements.

But Mr Johnson is entering solidly at the helm of his party in the often frenzied season of party conferences, with Sir Keir having to convince many Labor loyalists that he can get them out of the wilderness after the Corbyn years.
