British Prime Minister Johnson has lost two key ministers. Finance Minister Sunak and Health Minister Javid resigned in protest against Johnson. After the appointed hour already heir.

Two key ministers in British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government have resigned in protest at his administration: Finance Minister Rishi Sunak and Health Minister Sajid Javid have tendered their resignations after a series of scandals in the government and the Conservative Tory Party. Conservative members also resigned, including Secretary of State Jonathan Gullis and Saqib Bhatti.

No more hope

In his resignation letter, Javid stated that he had lost faith in the Prime Minister. Under Johnson’s leadership, the Conservative Party was not seen as respectable by the public, nor did it serve the national interest.

Even after a party-internal no-confidence vote in which Johnson narrowly won recently, the prime minister has not begun to reverse course. “It is clear to me that this situation will not change under your leadership,” Javid wrote.

Sunak insisted he had always been loyal to Johnson. But the public expects the government to act properly, efficiently and seriously. Both Javid and Sunak publicly supported Johnson during the Lockdown Party scandal.

A direct statement from Johnson was not initially available. His office issued a response letter to the two ministers later in the evening, in which Johnson expressed regret at their resignations. Hours later, Johnson appointed former education secretary Nadim Zahavi as the new finance minister. The Prime Minister appointed his previous chief of staff, Steve Barclay, as Health Minister.

Johnson is said to be aware of the allegations

Less than a month later, Johnson survived a no-confidence vote by his own Conservative Party over the “partygate” issue. However, he won by 211 to 148 votes in the Tory faction. About 40 percent of his group spoke against him.

More recently, the pressure on him has increased again due to the sexual harassment scandal. Chris Fincher, the Tory parliamentary under-secretary, resigned last weekend after it was revealed that he had sexually harassed two men at a private London club. British media reports that one of them is an MP. Both would have complained to the Conservative party leadership.

Johnson replaced Fincher, who previously held key positions in the party and administration, as deputy cabinet secretary in February. First, cabinet members said Johnson was unaware of the allegations when he elevated Fincher to the House post. A spokeswoman acknowledged Monday that Johnson was aware of the allegations.

Resistance: The regime is overthrown

Keir Starmer, leader of Britain’s opposition Labor Party, said in a statement: “After all the dirt, corruption and failure, it is clear that this government is now falling.”

According to a BBC report, Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said she was 100 per cent behind the Prime Minister. Defense Secretary Ben Wallace reportedly continues to support Johnson. Both are considered potential successors.

Johnson is scheduled to appear before a parliamentary committee on Wednesday. One of the highlights of the year in the British Parliament is the traditional questioning before the so-called Liaison Committee in the House of Commons. On any other occasion the head of government is less likely to avoid embarrassing questions.
