According to reports the latest crisis for Boris Johnson has come following Partygate, a no-confidence motion he survived along with two Bypoll defeats for his party. Rishi Sunak submitted his resignation letter to the government in which he wrote that for him to step down as Chancellor while the world is suffering the economic consequences of the pandemic, the war in Ukraine and other serious challenges is a decision that he has not taken lightly. The minister further added that the public rightly expects the government to be conducted competently, properly, and seriously.

Former Chancellor Rishi Sunak went on to write that he recognise that it might be his last ministerial job but he believes that these standards are worth fighting for and that it the reason he is resigning in the first place. On another hand, Sajid Javid, the Health Minister, said that it is with enormous regret that he must tell everyone that he can no longer continue serving in this government. He added that the British people also rightly expect integrity from their government and called himself a team player. Let us also mention that Tuesday was a dramatic day for UK politics.

Before the resignation of two senior ministers, the country saw the PM apologizing for not firing Pincher even though he was accused of sexual misconduct. Before that, a former senior civil servant accused Downing Street of lying on the issue even as the Deputy Prime Minister, Dominic Raab, was defending the government on TV. Besides, Boris has also been accused of not acting against Pincher despite knowing about his allegations against him in 2019. Although on July 1, the government claimed that Johnson had no idea about Pincher’s charges. However, on Monday, a spokesperson said that he was aware of the charges.
