Prime Minister Boris Johnson has resigned on Thursday, July 7, after less than three years in Number 10.
His resignation ends an unprecedented political cr#sis over his future that has paralyzed Britain’s government. In a speech at Downing Street, he said, “no one in politics is remotely indispensable”.
“I feel sad to be giving up the best job in the world. I fought so hard in the last few days to continue because I felt it was my job, my duty and my obligation to continue as PM.” . He added that the new leader will be announced next week. Recall that Johnson has become engulfed in a series of scandals that forced even his most stalwart supporters to abandon him.
More than 50 lawmakers have resigned from the government since Tuesday, furious about the botched handling of the resignation by Johnson’s former deputy chief whip, Chris Pincher, who was accused of r@ping two men last week.
