Boris Johnson’s finance and health secretaries, as well as a number of ministers, resigned on Tuesday. According to reports, more than 20 members of the government have resigned in protest of Mr Johnson’s leadership in the last 24 hours.

Finance Minister Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid said they could no longer tolerate the scandal culture that has followed Mr Johnson for months, including lockdown lawbreaking in Downing Street that enraged the public who followed the Covid-19 rules.

Sunak stated in his resignation letter that “the public rightly expect the government to be conducted properly, competently and seriously. … I believe these standards are worth fighting for and that is why I am resigning.”

The party needed “humility, grip, and a new direction,” according to Javid, but “it is clear this situation will not change under your leadership.”
