Boris Johnson is no more.
He will now be referred to as the FORMER UK Prime Minister
After dozens of officials resigned and many of his cabinet members demanded his resignation, Johnson finally caved and agreed to step down.
Plagued with Scandal
Johnson has been under fire virtually from the day he took office.
Just a few of the missteps of Johnson:
Promoting Chris Pincher to Deputy Chief Whip amid sexual misconduct allegations.
Pincher resigned on June 30 after reports that he allegedly groped two men at a club.
Prior to becoming the PM, Johnson had a Bill Clintonesque scandal, reportedly receiving oral sex in his office.
Then there is Partygate, where Johnson had attended parties during COVID lockdowns.
In all, eight parties involving 83 government officials were reported.
It was so bad, a recent appointee of Johnson’s called for his resignation only days after being appointed.
British Treasury chief Nadhim Zahawi, who was only appointed on Tuesday, recommended that Johnson resign on Thursday.
He wrote, “Prime Minister: this is not sustainable and it will only get worse: for you, for the Conservative Party and most importantly of all the country.
“You must do the right thing and go now.”
After the Pincher scandal broke, more than four dozen officials and five cabinet ministers resigned.
Johnson stated that he will stay on as PM until a successor is appointed, but that is only if the party allows him to remain in place, which is very much up in the air at the moment.
