British Prime Minister defies calls to resign

Published

Boris Johnson is pushing ahead, vowing to stay on as Prime Minister and continue leading his nation

There has been a landslide of calls for the PM to quit, after several top ministers announced their resignations, unsatisfied with how Johnson is sailing the ship.

There have been more than 40 resignations from within the government, with many lawmakers from within his own Conservative Party publicly staging an open revolt.

Sir Bernard Jenkin, who is the Chair of the Liaison Committee and Conservative MP says he told Johnson he “can go with some dignity” or be “forced out like Donald Trump, clinging to power and pretending he’s won the election when he’s lost”.

Treasury Minister, Helen Whately will also leave her post in the government.

“There are only so many times you can apologies and move on.”

It comes as Johnson hit back and fired Levelling Up Secretary Michael Gove from Cabinet, amid reports the minister was among a number of individuals pushing the leader to resign.

The British leader is refusing to say whether he will stay in the top job even if he loses a confidence vote from within his own party.

Speaking in parliament, former Health Secretary Sajid Javid says he is “deeply concerned about how the next generation will see the Conservative Party”.

Fellow Conservative MP David Davis believes Johnson’s pipeline of problems is “paralysing the nation”.

British media have also had a field day reporting on the resignations after reports emerged some Cabinet Ministers visited Downing Street to encourage Johnson to make a dignified exit.

Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer says enough is enough, and believes those quitting now haven’t “got a shred of integrity”.

“The dying act of his political career is to parrot that nonsense,” Starmer says.

In a statement,Trump says the property was ‘under siege’ adding nothing like this has ever happened to a former President of the United States before.

Sources close to the matter say it’s all part of an investigation into the handling of presidential documents, including classified documents, which may have been taken to Florida.

It follows the January 6 Congressional committee probing last year’s attack on the Capitol, gathering evidence in a series of explosive hearings.

Many witnesses have accused Trump of knowingly inciting the incident as part of a deliberate plot to overthrow the 2020 election.
