Boris Johnson is now facing a situation where if he doesn’t resign he will face more cabinet resignations. Johnson is currently in front of the liaison committee, but when he returns to his office he will have a delegation of cabinet ministers waiting to see him who will him he is done and that he must resign.

When I asked one ‘Is it over?’, they simply replied ‘yes’. If Johnson won’t go, he will face more cabinet resignations than he can fill. Leaving junior ministerial posts unfilled is bad, but it is simply not credible to not be filling cabinet posts.


Remarkably one of the ministers who will tell Johnson to go is Nadhim Zahawi who was made Chancellor less than 24 hours to go. This is a sign of just how fast the mood in the parliamentary party has changed.

Boris Johnson’s premiership is now in its final days, or possibly even hours.
